The Occult: The Ultimate Book for Those Who Would Walk with the Gods
The Occult: The Ultimate Book for Those Who Would Walk with the Gods
by Colin Wilson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A charming, eccentric insight into the world of the occult, 23 July 2006
I love this book. The version I have is from several decades ago and features an amazingly psychedelic 70s cover in two-tone green and black. The book itself is unlike anything you'll find these days. It was written decades ago and as such is very dated in its assumptions and conclusions. Nevertheless, I believe this adds to its charm as there is something innocent about the way he writes and his thirst to explore. Wilson explores a wide variety of occult phenomena ranging from magick to ghosts to ufos to werewolves. All the chapters have eccentric titles and he weaves from one subject to the other, whilst giving a detailed biography of many famous occult characters, notably Aleister Crowley, Emmanuel Swedenborg, the Golden Dawn, Helen Blavatsky to name a few. Although I doubt many of his theories would stand up to empirical scrutiny (especially in this age of obsessive skepticism) and he often relates stories as fact relying on dubiously reported evidence, this book is delightful in its passion for the subject and Wilson writes in a charming and olde-worldly fashion which takes the imagination on a journey into the past as well as the unknown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for those of a liberal-left disposition!, 20 July 2006
This review is from: Londonistan (Hardcover)
It's ironic but not entirely surprising that nobody in Britain(istan) would publish this book and one prospective publisher allegedly said "I'd rather take ricin than publish this". This exemplifies the level of denial and obtuseness that permeates the British establishment and liberal media. They are like the 3 proverbial monkeys who believe that if they cover their ears, eyes and mouths the dangers will disappear.

Melanie Phillips has been incredibly brave in publishing an extremely astute and at times frightening insight into the depths to which ordinary citizens are being deceived. It's the equivalent of what Winston Churchill called feeding a crocodile in the hope that this will stop it from eating you.

The fact that Phillips has had to run a gamut of personal slurs and predictable accusations of racism and paranoia exemplifies how deeply the supposedly `peaceful' and 'objective' left feels threatened by her and perhaps her outing of a belief which, according to the popularity of her book, many ordinary citizens agree with.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book. Read it if you dare!, 11 July 2006
An excellent book, well sourced and highly recommended for anyone who does not want the sugar-coated version of the history of the Islamic religion and a breath of fresh air against the march of the politically correct muzzle on dissenting views.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for those of a left-liberal disposition!, 10 July 2006
It's ironic but not entirely surprising that nobody in Britain(istan) would publish this book and one prospective publisher allegedly said "I'd rather take ricin than publish this". This exemplifies the level of denial and obtuseness that permeates the British establishment and liberal media. They are like the 3 proverbial monkeys who believe that if they cover their ears, eyes and mouths the dangers will disappear.

Melanie Phillips has been incredibly brave in publishing an extremely astute and at times frightening insight into the depths to which ordinary citizens are being deceived and debate stifled in order to mollify an aggressive and virulently hostile Islamist minority. It's the equivalent of what Winston Churchill called feeding a crocodile in the hope that this will stop it from eating you.

The fact that Phillips has had to run a gamut of personal slurs and predictable accusations of racism and paranoia exemplifies how deeply the supposedly `peaceful' and 'objective' left feels threatened by her and perhaps her outing of a belief which, according to the popularity of her book, many ordinary citizens agree with.

Highly recommended.
