I bought this purely because of Aleister Crowley and not Amado Crowley. I mean no disrespect to Amado who is an accomplished magician himself, but my main concern is with AC. I liked the childhood account of life in England during WWII especially. In the book Amado gives an example of one of the few actual paranormal phenomena his father showed him: levitation. This sounds strange, after all AC was a Magus - however he never (as far as I am aware) claimed to do things completely impossible. The biographical account did give a new angle on AC, whether or not this was coloured by Amado's perception I think is irrelevant. If my father was as infamous as Crowley then I too would capitalise on the fact. I am aware of two similar books by Amado and when my reading schedule has relaxed then maybe another indulgence is in store. If you are a pedantic Crowley scholar or want a nice easy introduction to it all, then this is for you.

I have read most available books on Aleister Crowley, and I have heard what some people think about this one too. In contrast to them, I liked it very much and read it in one sitting. In the end, I don't think it matters whether the author is or is not Aleister's true son. What matters is the story which colourful and convincing. I have learned more about magic in this modest piece of work than from any of the vast and expensive tomes turned out by American publishing houses. Keep going, Amado! Tell us more.

This was the first of his books that I read and I found it great! I didn't know anything about Aleister Crowley before reading these books, so I never had a bias opinion about him. Some of the events explained in the book are amazing, and really opened my eyes. Once I had finished the book, I could'nt wait to get the other books. It really is a great read.

I found this book well written and by a author who has a good knowledge base and importantly a good sense of humor. I knew nothing about Amado Crowley before I read the book but after reading it I found that I wished to know more about his teaching. It would appear different than the teachings of other Crowley followers, but I found Amado Crowley so refreshing and eloquent that I read his other books too.
In summary Amado Crowley appears to be a breath of fresh air in the Occult world.
