And who knows, the secrets may be buried in the context clues. If they are, I can say I definitely do not hold the key. PDF can be found online for free very easily. They aren't really charging for wisdom, it's all out there for you.
As far as the content - it reminds me a lot of an extended version of Rudolph Steiner's Outline of the Occult Sciences. As it stands I don't fully know what to make of it because there is a lot of material here I haven't heard before and all I can do is vet it on internal cogency. Handling of physical, etheric, astral, and mental evolution make a lot of sense, the criss-crossing of different kinds of evolution makes a lot of sense in context to other things I've read, also the mystic biblical exegesis makes perhaps even a bit more sense than what I saw from Steiner. I also see this as the kind of book that subtly insinuates that evolution is generally stressful and that making it to Future Jupiter, Future Venus, etc. will be just as stressful in its own ways - perhaps even more so - than our incarnations on earth.
Overall the presentation is that there's no magic involved, that what we've called magic is in modern minds a hideous misnomer for something much more natural (making the measurement problem work for you in the industrial processing of your own consciousness - the long-haul name for that game is alchemy), and that what we've really been given here is work - lots and lots of work! It makes sense I suppose that we don't see past lives or just how many daunting future incarnations we have, most of us would have our heads in the toilet for a good while over that.
