amazing book and a great introduction through lessons to gain the confidence to evoke or invoke in a very natural and safe manner.
Other books seem academic and dusty in comparison and tend to suck out the air of enthusiasm. this book gave me courage to overcome the dire warnings and banish fears step by step...a great book and one to use with the academic tombs as reference.

This is the only single Book I have ever read that can makes one a full potent magician without reading other books.
You don't need other books to become a Magician when you have this book. my praises to Konstantinos; all that
you need to become a successful magician is in this book, I think it is second to none!!!

True to form, this book is yet another example of the "golly gee whiz" testimonial-style books that are all that Llewellyn seems to be printing these days. While remarkably Christian in style for a Llewellyn publication, the sugary presentation and insipid testaments to the "wonders of spirits" are models of the genre.
Konstantinos presents his material in a relatively lucid and straightforward manner; his exercises are for the most part well thought-out and effective (in so far as they go). However, the idea that one can leap from meditation directly into the evocation of spirits is comparable to the assumption that because one can now toddle across the room, one is fit for the Olympic games.
The spirits presented are for the most part drawn from the medieval grimoires which are the goetic's stock-in-trade, though some of the spirits presented are completely new and are presumably ones with whom the author has "attained communication". What reaction these spirits may have to having their telephone number-equivalents written on the cosmic restroom wall is not yet recorded... perhaps in true Llewellyn fashion there will be a volume 2 in which this will be noted.
While this is a reasonable presentation of one system of evocatory magic, it is hardly a definitive work on the subject. Konstantinos' wide-eyed enthusiasm mixed with occasional stern ethical cautions quickly becomes tiresome, and his writing style is rather immature (doubly damaging given the intricacy of his chosen topic). I'm afraid three stars is the best I can do here.

I must take issue with one of the claims made by the author about this book. He says that it is the only book you will ever need on the subject.
This is patently not true.
Don't get me wrong, there is some stuff worth reading in this book, but it is _suggestive_, not _definitive_. For example, his Clairvoyance and Clairaudience exercises are interesting. Also, the descriptions of the fifty spirits is useful - assuming that they are taken from his own magical diary.
But elsewhere, Konstantinos makes a bit of a hash with his presentation of the Golden Dawn-style of magic, no more so than in his treatment of Enochian magic, which is woeful. This is a complex subject in itself, so much so that authors like Aleister Crowley and more recently John Michael Greer have recognised that it can't be handled adequately in a book which is only general in its terms.
My advice: read it if you want - or better still borrow it from a lending library if you want! - but there _are_ other books on the subject which should be read to get a more balanced view. (See, e.g. Crowley, Greer, Lon Milo Duquette, Poke Runyon, etc).

It seems as if the book was written for twelve year olds.Most if not all the content was taken from other sources whose authors did likewise.But again most if not all so called Magick books are rehashed material.Material that's basically useless for the true seeker.The few pages on preliminary exercises seems as if it came from the heart and I feel is actually quite useful for someone who has'nt taken an inner journey before...but who has'nt?

This is a starter book as is the case with a lot of Llewelyn. I think it may be useful for the budding evoker, but seriously folks, the likes of Bardon, Crowley et al need to be examined in some depth first, and a great deal of practice experianced in the basics should be facilitated. Similar books like DuQuette's treatise into the matters concerning evokation I think fit along side this book: superficial, and funny, but undermining any depth, safety, appropriate actions et al.
The book is useful in that it covers the basic mechanisms of evokation, but it must not been seen as the be all for this subject: So naturally contradicts the claims of the author ..oh-hum.
