Editorial Reviews


Osho, Gurdjieff, and Crowley were 'dangerous magi' because their teachings were provocative and confrontational and require discerning interpretation. P.T. Mistlberger has personal experiential knowledge of the three esoteric paths pioneered by these magi. In this excellent book he explains why all three have contributed to the perennial wisdom tradition despite the controversy associated with their teachings. The Three Dangerous Magi is thoroughly researched and accessibly written and I recommend it unreservedly. -- Nevill Drury, Ph.D, author of Stealing Fire from Heaven.

An astoundingly comprehensive analysis of three of the most influential spiritual leaders of the last 100 years. It not only compares and contrasts their personalities and practices, but puts them into the context of their predecessors, milieus, and eras, resulting in astute and literate realizations that make this book both intriguing and a delight, transcending the individuals and leaving true insight into the ultimate meaning of their work.
~ Donald Michael Kraig, author of Modern Magick

Mistlberger has written a VERY interesting book on three extraordinary people most people would not think to link up. He has certainly done his homework and he writes well.
~ John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt.

The Three Dangerous Magi is a magnificent book, the result of decades of research and personal immersion in the off-beat, mystical worlds of inner transformation. I can't recommend it highly enough. -- Andy Lloyd, author of Dark Star and Ezekiel One

If you want a wonderfully readable book about the sensational lives of these charismatic teachers, then this is clearly the book for you. But there is far more here than simple biography. There is history and social background, psychology, religion and mysticism. With the background of his own search with Osho and other teachers, his meticulously researched investigation and his intelligent appraisal of both facts and myth, P.T. Mistlberger presents a veritable feast for your enjoyment and instruction!
~ Dennis Waite, author of The Book of One and Back to the Truth

Considering its complex and contentious subject matter, this book is written not just with deep experiential knowledge but with simplicity: one of the most informative and enjoyable books of comparative religion I have ever read.  
~ Fortean Times

An accurate, insightful, and fascinating discussion of three of the strangest spiritual teachers ever to have come to the public eye.
~ Richard Smoley, author of The Dice Game of Shiva and Inner Christianity
