    1. At first, I was a little disappointed when the book began defining different 'rituals' on meditation and other physical arts as well as describing the process of how it's done(eg. Yoga, Taichi etc.) Can't say that I've learned anything extravagant regarding magical traditions as I hoped I would, but then again, I have way big and possibly too fantasy-based expectations out of books regarding magic and occult. The second half was surely interesting and caught my attention. Though my opinion stand [...]

    2. There's no book . no pages with wordsI found the book empty . The pages were blank , I had a wonderful time imagining what the words would say

    3. Concise and informativeThis is an excellent overview of magical systems, clearly delineating their essential natures and goals. . tisfying in itself or as a springboard to deeper study.

    4. Excellent book on internalized and externalized occult practices. Dispelled some notions that I had about certain practices, and indeed helped me to improve on my current ritual practices. Would recommend it to any practicing occultist.
