This is an eye-opener of a book. It is a nice guide to Aleister Crowley. Highly recommended reading. -- Lee Prosser, Ghostvillage.com
This is a clear introduction to the works of Crowley by a modern master of the occult. DuQuette's humorous and down-to-earth style demystifies Crowley's writing and rituals in this modern grimoire. Step by step, he presents a course of study with examples of rituals and explanations of their significance. DuQuette also includes a course of study for Crowley's original works with an extensive bibliography and fastidious footnotes.

Crowley has been dismissed as over-complicated, verbose, or just barking mad. He was - and in many ways still is - way ahead of his time. His magic has a pattern and logic all of its own, but it isn't for dabblers. There is enough information in this book to occupy an aspirant for years.
If you want to be a Thelemite, this should be in your library.
I will be honest and state that I am not a great fan of Lon Milo Duquette's other books, however he has really achieved something here by assembling Crowley's rituals from various documents and editing them into one, easy to follow, book. This would be a great book for those who are interested in discovering and practicing the rituals of Aleister Crowley, which are often vaguely described or omitted completely in his biographies.
I managed to purchase a brand new copy for £8 from one of the sellers on Amazon, which is very good value for money and well worth it. I would also recommend buying 'Gems from the Equinox' (hardback) to go with this text.
