Review by BajorRon
Brilliant book, but a tough read, which invites much study and contemplation! Regardie provides the reader with a a good theoretical introduction to the topic of High Magic and then proceeds with a more practical approach: how to train the Will of the Magician, how to astrally project and how to work with ancient grimoires, to name a few, as well as a thorough outline of the method of Abramelin the mage. Using a beautiful yet right to the point and sometimes very down-to-earth style, Regardie obviously knows what he is talking about. And the wonderful emblems and occult illustrations provide you with endless triggers for meditation. A must have for every serious student of the occult!
