There are very few entertaining - or even readable, autobiographies by occultists. I can only really think of a couple that I have read that I would recommend (Maybe 'Meetings With Remarkable Men' and 'Confessions of Aleister Crowley' are two worth checking out). It seems that whilst the practice of magick can be exciting very often the same cannot be said of the people who practice it!
'The Secret Life of a Satanist' is without doubt a refreshing exception for it tells the story of a man who really cared little about what the world thought of him - he just got on living his life the way that he thought was right for him. As a result he had a story to tell and irrespective of what you thought about his brand of Satanism (which personally I failed to find the slightest bit offensive) his character and persona shone through and touched everyone he associated with. Sure, like all magickians, he made a few enemies along the way but that is invariably the way for any one who carves their own niche through life!
This book is a great read and offers a wonderful example to us all that life is meant to be lived and not spent pontificating ..... having said which I shall now shut up and shove off! Recommended!
