No one has written this clearly and accurately about the astral experience since Crowley himself. The style is similar enough to the Beast that it can only give one pause.

This thin book contained a number of inaccuracies -- many of which I believe were deliberately written with negative intent. Very disempowering if perused by an impressionable neophyte. It attempts to scare the reader into thinking that there is hardly anything one can do to protect oneself from a powerful negative entity! To be charitable, I must say that the author does point out that the astral world can be dangerous, that some astral 'guides' may harbor ill intent, and that most New-Agers are suckers and wannabes. However, the overall tone of this work is cynical and negative. That, combined with a number of significant inaccuracies, make the information it contains potentially harmful. Only recommended for those who wish to add it to a collection.

This is the first of three self-published book by G. Travels by vanity publishing house I-Universe. It purports to be about the astral and ¿astral combat.¿ Be aware that this is an extremely thin volume considering its cost. The author claims knowledge of the astral realms. And yet, virtually nothing he has to say on the subject jibes with any other published material. Indeed, actual astral travelers will find nothing familiar or recognizable in this book. One begins to wonder if perhaps the wrong book was put in this cover by mistake. It certainly has little to do with the astral as we know it. As for the quality of the book and writing, it is poor. There are numerous typographical errors and misspellings. It does not appear to have been edited by anyone with a grasp on the English language. It is also written with an arrogant attitude, which is tiresome in the extreme. The author does not brook any difference of opinion to his beliefs. There is only one truth, and it is his truth. His manifesto (published in the back) is written like a legal document wherein anyone who chooses a world-view other than the one expressed in his each stated belief (and I quote), ¿chooses death.¿ Is this a death threat? It certainly is written that way. The subject is further confused by the author¿s penchant for using home-made jargon instead of universally understood terms. This jargon is ill-defined and creates additional layers of confusion. Being able to communicate clearly is a necessity in any would-be writer. But there is little of that virtue in this or the follow-up books. It only ends up being a confused convolution of faulty logic and lack of basic order. As for ¿astral combat,¿ astral combat and astral warrior groups are nothing new. Yet, the author presents the topic as if he represents the subject and is its originator. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are many different groups that do this sort of thing. It is surprising that someone so involved with this is so unaware of the many other groups and individuals doing it. The author is not the spokesperson for the spiritual or astral warrior community by any means, nor is he even a reliable source for information on the subject. For example: G. Travels claims people have no immortal spirit. However, it is a virtually universally shared experience that upon first astral projecting, most everyone who does so is overwhelmed by the wonderful discovery that yes indeed, they are an immortal spirit that is only temporarily dwelling in a physical body. This one fact alone is proof positive that the author has probably never truly astral projected in his life. You can test the truth of this yourself. Simply learn to astral project and you will learn the truth of it. In summation: this is a very thin volume, over-priced, poorly written, inaccurate, and arrogantly insulting of the community and subject it tries to falsely represent. These books do not serve the community, only the vanity of the author. There are far more reputable and experienced writers on the subject, such as Stuart Wilde, Justice Barrymore, and the late Violet Firth and Christine Hartley.

because they have preconcieved ideas about what the astral planes are about, valid or no. This book is by far the most honest, candid and explicit book about the astral realms and how they interact with our daily existence that I have ever seen. Utterly recomended--it will change ones life.

And it changed my life in a manner I would have never imagined. This is a tremedously powerful read. I will never look at the world in the same way again.
