About the Author
Melita Denning and Osborne Phillips are internationally-recognized authorities on the mainstream Western Mysteries and are two of the foremost exponents of the Ogdoadic Tradition, that premier hermetic school whose keywords are knowledge and regeneration, and whose influence and works are historically traceable for the past one thousand years.
The authors received their major esoteric training in the magical order Aurum Solis, a society which was founded in 1897 and which has continued in active existence to the present day. On July 8, 1987, the authors, then heads of Aurum Solis, retired from the Order; but on June 23, 1988, at the unanimous request of the members, they resumed office.
In 1997, Melita Denning passed from this earth.

Part of the problem however, is defining a novice book on the subject. I generally think Francis King's "Techniques of High Magic" is a good primer, but this is at least as good as that book as it is far more comprehensive and the understanding of the authors is impeccable.
The one thing that is lacking for a novice here is putting this all together into a curriculum for self-development. This is one area the book could be clearer. At the same time, the approach taken is a good one.
This is a classic work (along with the other two mentioned in the first paragraph of this review) and is highly recommended.
However, the quality of the print is nearly unacceptable. Muddy.. Not so pleasant to read and it's even difficult to distinguish small-sized symbols.
I wonder whether the printing quality of this book is really that bad or if i just received a "bad batch".
