Written as a series of letters from Crowley to his 'magical son' and supposed heir, Frater Achad, which is just as useful to anyone who considers themselves heirs of the tradition of Thelema. Also, there are many chapters explicitly pertinent to work with OTO degrees if you have eyes to see.
Jul 16, Ivan rated it liked it. For me, the best book by Crowley ever. His language is very hard to understand if you are not very deep into Thelema practices, so I had some troubles reading most of his books. But, in this one, there are some very clear references to some problems in life and advices how to overcome them.
Apr 06, Gionysius McLeod rated it it was ok. Meh, it's ok. If you want to understand Crowley's writing, and Thelema in general, better there are plenty other books that are more modern and rewarding. Feb 15, Bryan rated it really liked it. Quite a difficult read. This is not casual reading and it is not a book you read once. I had been re-reading it for several years. Nonetheless, it is important for understanding Crowley's method of attainment as well as his relationship with Jones.
