About the Author
Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), who claimed to be the reincarnation of Dr. John Dee among others, lived in England from 1875 through 1947. He is the author of several Weiser Books titles, including Book of Thoth, Diary of a Drug Fiend, Magick, Book of Lies, Book of the Law and 777 & Other Qabalistic Writings. He was a poet, mountaineer, secret agent, magus, libertine, and prophet - was dubbed by the tabloids "The Wickedest Man in the World."

Magick: Liber ABA
Doctrine & Covenants.
& any of the good book on Egyptian culture and theology.
At that point you will understand a lot of what is being said in this book.
On a side note I have seen quite a few reviews on here complaining about typos in this book... /facepalm this is incorrect there are no typos. this is an exact typed version of written pages that were written in the 1800s, they spelled things differently then and were not as picky about where they put an apostrophe or period etc... these are not typos.
That said, I dislike that all of the commercially available version of Liber AL, so far as I'm aware, include the "intro" chapters prior to the actual text, which's why I subtract 1 star. These are *not* apart of the actual text received from Aiwass in 1904, but later additions.
Nevertheless, my favourite book to quote from and live by.
The language is so powerful that it has become part of my being.
I have four copies in this format and about 10 in the other books it has appeared in..
The Book of the Law is the "sacred text" of Thelema. It was supposively dictated to Crowley on his wedding night from an entity named Aiwass. The book only has 3 chapters, in the 1st person perspectives of Thelemic deities Nuit, Hadit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The Book of the Law may be short in pages, but the amount of knowledge is intense and should be revisited as I find with most Crowley works, you just seem to find or understand more each time. So to completely review this book, it's difficult to explain to those that have not read it. It is not a "read through" book. It's very rich and loaded with interesting logic.
