The great virtue of this book is it emphasizes a necessary ingredient all too often omitted or ignored by other alchemical works: the alchemist's proper state of mind when performing the alchemical processes and procedures. Hauck repeatedly relates that if an adept performs a procedure without first clearing, purifying and focusing his mind and soul, the procedure sought will inevitably be a failure. This is a point rarely discussed in other popular books about alchemy, or if raised is mentioned in passing or glossed over in a perfunctory manner.
This is the distinguishing feature of this book. While it mentions features of external alchemy, it emphases how the principles of alchemy can be applied to personal development.
In addition to providing instructions on preparing tinctures, Hauck offers what is probably the most insightful and original interpretation of Kubrick's 2001, A Space Odyssey I have ever seen. Hauck interprets this movie as an alchemical allegory which charts the progress of the human race according to the alchemical philosophy.
This is a book of great depth and understanding to the basics on alchemy. While it is subtitled as a beginner's guide, the contents can be relied upon as primary resource material.
