A good collection of disturbing knowledge!
on 6 December 2010
This is a truly bizarre book, if for no other reason that the author writes under the pseudonym of a mythological demon and in some ways probably believes he is indeed that demon incarnate! For certain he is alarmingly narcissistic (as some of his other book titles would suggest too), and I suspect follows a philosophy such as satanism. Or at least he writes in that style. However, at least he is frank about such things. The knowledge within this book could be used for good or bad purposes, and the author presents it cold and leaves you to decide what to do with it. That is commendable, as it could easily turn into a cheap charlatan promise of snake oil.
As other reviews have mentioned, there are a number of spelling mistakes and typos in the book which are slightly detracting. Sometimes it reads more like a long email than a properly edited book. However, if you can put that aside, the actual information is quite a treasure trove, and is essentially a concentration of what other authors have said conveniently put into a single volume. For that, the title is quite apt.
Some of the topics covered are rather disturbing, and cover such unpleasantness as psychoactive drugging, abuse, and similar very direct (and illegal) forms of "mind control". The author inserts frequent disclaimers that this is simply knowledge, not recommended action, and readers would be wise to heed that. I felt rather uncomfortable reading this book in public and preferred to make sure the cover wasn't ever visible!
Parts of the content are highly speculative, as is often the case with such a subject, but on the whole the information presented sounds plausible and makes sense. As inevitable with such subjects, you have to take which bits you believe and leave which bits you don't, as this is quite away far from mainstream thought. However, as already mentioned, it would benefit greatly from the eye of an editor, as it feels more like a draft than a final published volume at the moment.
Buy this book if you are feeling in a naughty mood and want to learn about bad things you are not supposed to know about. Indeed, the author cites this as one of humanity's "basic addictions" (a lust to know things you shouldn't know). But read it with a pinch of salt, and for the love of god don't put all of the techniques within into practice.
