I'm new to occultism and have recently been researching magick practices. I found this book very interesting and it provided some guidance for how I could approach my occult research. I have always been a naturalist and have struggled to reconcile that with the spooky writings of typical new-age authors. IAO131 presents a naturalist framework that still recognizes and appreciates the importance of ritual without being gullible about the reality of the ritual's aspects. I'm not sure yet exactly where my position lies on the continuum but nevertheless the book is an interesting and worthwhile read.

I have read scores of books on the occult, and over the years have developed a much more scientific and rationalist worldview in my beliefs and practices, so when I stumbled across this book, It was a breath of fresh air. I have to say though, after reading it, the breath was just that one breath.
I was not impressed with this book, mainly because being it is slim, I figured it would avoid what books and systems of ceremonial magic due, and that’s linger on and on with all manner of ritual specifics, which is similar to sitting at a catholic mass.
Now granted, the premise is met, and that is simplifying the A.'.A.'. System down to its component parts, and getting rid of the great deal of ritualistic superstition. It does this well.
But the book is overly wordy using allot, "and here’s how it works" mixed with big words, and honestly (in my opinion) Occult Apologetics. I get it this isn't the original system but move on tell us what’s the premise and how we should go forward.
Overall, it’s a good and unique book, and if you tend to be more of a scientific and psychology based practioner in your practice and beliefs, you may like it, this paradigm approach to magic is sadly lost under the flood of new age magic books.
Over all, it wasn’t my cup of tea, it felt to much like a theory, “Here try approaching it with this thought process” than really give direction on how to do it and I suppose in a sense if you share this books mindset, it would be counterintuitive to not discover the ways on your own. I just think it could have been executed better.
