Parson's essay Freedom is a Two-Edged Sword is a brillant work on individual liberty and how it can be realised by all. Alot of what Parson's has to say is in the tradition of John Locke, but written in a style more appealing to today's reader. Written in the 1940's his insight into moral, religious, social and sexual issues is still very relevant today. I promise you will find memorable quotes on every page of the main essay so be ready with either a good highlighter or red pencil to underline them because you will be doing alot of that.

Who knew...?! Insight into the personal life of one of the worlds 'behind the scenes' architects of technological change; Insight into his point-of-view regarding a changing world in wich he was both a benefactor as well as a victim. Occult sex magic rituals and government contracting... oh, ya! There's a marriage made behind a closed door. Interesting read if you like interesting subject matter.

Definitively a must-read for anyone genuinely interested in liberation and evolution of humanity. So ahead of his time that some paragraphs could have been written during the Bush Administration, the man who invented rocket fuel and founded the Jet Propulsion Laboratory delivers a series of political essays that could serve as the blueprint for a Thelemic political movement.

Format: Paperback
Those who begin investigating the history of the occult will eventually run across Jack Parsons. I've had this book on my list for some time but the several hundred dollar price tag for the out of print book was outrageous, so it is wonderfull that it is being reprinted. In this book you will find a champion for personal freedom. His writings in the 50's are pretty insightfull about the dangers facing us now. He may be called mad because he chose to live life on his terms and follow his passion even at the expense of losing everything, but I find it inspirational that someone has the guts to actually leap across the abyss instead of just give it lip service. We need more of his works in print.
The only reason I give it 4 stars is that it contains only a limited amount of material for the price, but it is still a good addition to the library.

Format: Paperback
Its nice cOTO (Caliphate OTO) ocassionally publishes something decent and useful like this instead of suing people and behaving like a scary little sister of Scientology, Inc. (Which Parsons can legitimately be co-credited with creating, due to his formative influence on L. Ron Hubbard)...

The Book itself? Classic Parsons, though it avoids some of his sharper and more controversial material (ie his letters and his 'Autobiography of a Master of the Temple') ; Its a good introduction to the wild mixture of deep insight and bullgoose insanity that was Jack Parsons.

A 'complete works' would be much more useful.
