    highly recommended

    Great Read. This brings together the practical, spiritual and philosophical aspects of alchemy. A great place to start your studies or to enhance the knowledge of a person already learned in the subject.

    As far as i'm concerned, this book is a great introduction if you want to get a feel for understanding the basic tenets of alchemy and it's many branches of study and practice. In short, if there's one part of this book that you find interesting (psychological, spiritual, etc.) you should consider looking for other alchemy books focused on that criteria--and it just so happens that there's a huge book list at the final page to give you that start! Anyone who's new to this MUST read this book first.
