An Amazon's  customer's comment-- with which I agree...

Interesting read, but badly organized
The Magician's Workbook does offer some unique material on the basics of ceremonial magic, but it is definitely not for a beginner. A lot of the "requirements" the author has in this book, and in the next volume (Goetic Evocation), are way too specific for practical use.

The book is badly organized in that there is no real introduction to the material; the reader is simply thrown in mid-topic and expected to know everything that is going on. This is a book for beginners but written for advanced users, which seems to defeat the purpose.

Sadly, most of the modern books on "magic" I find to be derivative and unremarkable.... Of course, a good book on the topic would be very difficult to write, and I doubt very much that one could find a publisher to do such a book justice. Llewellyn, which publishes most such books these days, knows that it has to appeal to the lowest common denominator to make a buck, and so it does; a successful commercial strategy, but one which has turned the study of magick into something of a fool's game. Not like when I started, and the only books which were available at all on the subject were the classics, written earlier in the century (or late in the century before) and reprinted due to the explosion of interest in the sixties. Too late for most of the hippies, but just on time for a batch of young "occultists", including myself, in the seventies.

I do answer all email, I am still online,
and I am always happy to discuss enlightenment,
esoteric psychology and practice, and books.
