I'm not much for ceremonialism, but I love LMD's books. Not only are the exceptional instruction manuals, they are also shot through with his great sense of humor and a very grounded sense of self. His first memoir, My Life with the Spirits, chronicles his life to the point of being a young magician. Low Magick picks up from that and covers his later life, including stories of exorcism, magical counseling for a rabbi, how to handle invocation, and why this may all indeed simply be in your head.I love his praise for the law of attraction, since I actually agree with him. All those pop psychology, new age authors are teaching people magick! I will add my issue with it: without the proper preparations, including self-examination, you can easily find yourself bogged down with more than you realize needs to be handled. That, and it also comes from a place of privilege, because it would take a generally prosperous, stable culture like ours to produce such a thing. If you think otherwise, remember the little children being assaulted in places like Somalia and ask yourself if they "deserve" it or somehow attracted it to themselves.In any case, this is certainly worth reading, especially if you want to see how magickal workings can impact an entire life.

Overall I liked the book. I enjoy the way Duquette tells his personal journey through magick in a series of memoirs. As a person who is just entering magick, it was nice to get a sense of what this may be like. I'm drawn to the procedural aspects of ceremonial magick but how it allows for creativity. The book helps show that.
