    1. Don Webb is a magus of the Left Hand Path, an official in the Temple of Set I have read some of his earlier works and was quite impressed with his erudition The meat of this current work is the examination of Crowleys great revelation THE Book of Law Now many Thelemites have told me that Crowley would not discuss the book of law because it was written for each and every single one of us and it is a revelation meant fort each invidual that reads it Don Webb has written his own commentary on and h [...]


    2. There s no way I can give this book less than 5 stars It isn t entirely niggle free, but niggles are all they are.A few years ago, Don Webb published a little book called Aleister Crowley The Fire and the Force through Runa Raven Press It was the best analysis and practical appraisal of Crowley and his Thelemic philosophy that I have ever read and I have read a LOT by and about Crowley With the sad closure of Runa Raven, this book went out of print I am delighted to see it incorporated into this [...]


    3. A quick comment here My ratings reflect my own personal experiences with a book, not an attempt at an objective judgment I finished this book quite awhile ago, so perhaps I will later give this book a complete review For now, I will just say that I wish I had read the Book of the Law beforehand, and perhaps an autobiograbophy on Crowley.If, like me, you had not much experience with crowley or his works, I would recommend skipping the first half of this book, which offers up line by line comment [...]


    4. Clearly written and immensely useful I would second the opinion that the book could have been otherwise structured, instead of starting with the commentaries to the Book of the Law, but that is a minor complaint Webb has an unique vantage point to the practice of magic his style of writing is concise and sometimes very funny, with depth and an innovative approach His appreciation for seeking the mysteries is balanced by a healthy dose of common sense I d recommend this to anyone who d like to de [...]
