On the other hand, it is of immense use for new magicians who are unsure of the relation between the practical and the spiritual. Without this book, the altar room may become unnecessarily crowded, the altar itself might be unsuitable for the weight placed upon it, and the magician might come into trouble with law enforcement because they followed the 19th century or early 20th century rules governing mystical association without concern for rare & regulated plants. If you have common sense, this book still comes in handy because it provides thought exercises on the issue of each sphere and its relation to both the spiritual and material realm.
I would suggest you also obtain a copy of 776 1/2 by Eshelman because it contains updated information and more thorough information than the antiquated (yet powerful) book, 777. Of course, you should probably be following a Hermetic magical path for any of this to be useful to you at all! Those Wiccans who do not care about the Kabbalah might not need this book for anything except to place a coffee mug on.
I admit I have my regrets for purchasing this book, as I assumed it contained more information on the Kabbalah than The Chicken Qabalah of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford, and usurped the position of Dion Fortune's The Mystical Qabalah. Nothing could have been less true! Purchase this only if you have uncertainty or trouble with furnishing and decorating an altar!
Granted I'm still a newbie -- but from what I've read so far (which is a lot) and based on reviews and recommendations from teachers, fellow students, and good ol' Amazon.com, I put this book on my Top 5 list along with: Lon Milo Duquette's "The Chicken Qabalah of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford," Israel Regardie's "The Complete Golden Dawn System of Magic," Frater Barrabbasand's "Magical Qabalah for Beginners: A Comprehensive Guide to Occult Knowledge," and Dion Fortune's "The Mystical Qabalah," (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER.)
For a concise introduction to Judaic/Hebraic Kabbalah which is quite different from Hermetic Qabalah, I enjoyed Dovid Krafchow's "Kabbalistic Tarot."
Kraft is a teacher. She has finely-honed communication skills and she has called upon all of those skills in order to put this workbook together. Qabalah is often perceived as a complicated subject. Kraft has worked hard to dispel that idea. Well-organized and very readable, her guide to becoming a practical qabalist is filled with easily-accessible information designed to be put into practice. She sends readers in search of their own Qabalistic discoveries and insights, and she provides us with a very solid foundation from which to work.
