If you already know something about ritual magick but you're still looking for a path, and you're curious about the Great Beast and all his Works, this is probably the very best book to start with. Lon Milo du Quette is a Thelemite of many years experience. He writes clearly and in detail about Crowley's magical system, how the rituals (all given here) should be performed and what they mean. And - wow - unusually for a ritual magician, he has a sense of humour too. (Happily more accessible than Crowley's!)
Crowley has been dismissed as over-complicated, verbose, or just barking mad. He was - and in many ways still is - way ahead of his time. His magic has a pattern and logic all of its own, but it isn't for dabblers. There is enough information in this book to occupy an aspirant for years.
If you want to be a Thelemite, this should be in your library.
