    I Also Recommend:

    Be careful with this one.

    The Goetia, or Goetic Theurgy, Hebrew Mysticism, etc, is a very complicated and detailed subject, with a great many texts and contributing authors spanning many centuries. This book, "The Goetia" translated and edited by S.L. MacGregor Mathers is probably one of the more authentic and exacting texts on the subject. With that said, thie rituals and practices contained in this book are REAL, they do WORK and you can HARM yourself and others if you don't take it seriously, and show the material the proper respect. I would not recommend this book for the lay occultist, rather the more seasoned mystic with, perhaps, an affection for the Darker side of things.

    A must for your occult library

    If you are a just a student of magick or a very serious practitioner, this is a book that has to be in your collection. It provides knowledge of invocations and the appearances and characteristics of the demons. The only shortcoming is that there is no intense additional prose to describe things in depth. This is also a very edited version. SLM Mathers refused to divulge the most sinister and what he deemed 'dangerous' knowledge!

    Advanced Reading.....Take Your Time On This One

    Ok.....this book is definitely for the Advanced student of Magick. I've been studying and practicing Magick for 17 years and I've found this book challenging; however, QUITE informative. Read along with the Greater Key Of Solomon.

    Inside your mind's poisons

    This book, although dangerous if misunderstood, implies in the lesser forces of the being (the pentagram inscribed in the circle, whiche gives us 360 divided by 5=72). Those who believe in outer demonic beings need a little more practice w/ the subject. This grimorium needs a moderns language as Crowley started to inscribe in it.
