“As well as being a particularly fine introduction to the practical side of the occult, Thundersqueak could almost be regarded as one of the ur-texts of Kaos, if not the one that set the kaos-sphere rolling." - Head Magazine, issue 5
“Thundersqueak is definitely on my list of Top Ten Most Influential Books That I Have Read” Rodney Orpheus
“This is a book to turn you on to so many things; it’s hard to know where to start... I suppose at a pinch this could be called a self-help book- as there are instructions inside that you can follow, and by doing so make your life better (or at least more interesting)- and perhaps happier- even if “the only true happiness is to live dangerously in times of peace, and to be at peace in times of cri- sis” ... but New-Age fluffy it is NOT! This is ‘self-help by self psychic-surgery’: It tears your self to bits and chucks out the crap.” Kate Hoolu on www.occultebooks.com

This book is absolutely phenomenal... it is nearly impossible to convey how amazing it is, or to even touch upon how deeply it probes into reality as we know it.
About the Author
Angerford and Lea are two contrasting aspects of the author's personality. Lionel Snell, known since 1976 for his radical and influential books about occult philosophy and rationalism, chaos magic, the virtual universe, and magical thinking. Described by Alan Moore, author of Jerusalem, V for Vendetta etc, as "...the most lucid, coherent and insightful intellect to emerge from British occultism for some several decades". Educated at Clifton College, Bristol, where his interest in alchemy and science history was fired by access to the EJ Holmyard collection, and at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he studied the extensive works of Aleister Crowley an he took a Diploma in Education and taught at Eton College and later at The New Waldorf School, Kings Langley. Subsequent work includes aircraft stressman, technical author and freelance ghost writer for the ICT sector. Other associations include membership of the London Magic Circle, the Caliphate OTO, the IoT and other occult groups and in 1977 he performed the Abramelin retirement. As Ramsey Dukes, he has a popular YouTube channel featuring short discussions on magic and related topics

Dukes is the king of ontological anarchy.
Subtitled "Confessions of a Right Wing Anarchist", the book dissects government and media in order to free us from "seeing through other peoples visions of the world". Ultimately though, the book reaches far far far beyond politics or media, and questions how we see the world through our own vision. We use different maps to navigate through reality, in the form of beliefs, preconceptions, ideals, attitudes, etc... are these maps actually tyrants that dominate us?
The hilarious (and incredibly enjoyable to read) ideas in this book help to clear away mental baggage, helping readers to question what they take for reality. Is reality what you have read in newspapers or heard from politicians, but have never experienced? Is reality going to a boring job every day, waiting until you retire to enjoy yourself, having routinized and predictable conversations, never thinking about what other possible ways you could be living your life? What would life be like if you stripped away everything you have learned, all the beliefs and habitual ways of living that have been socialized into you from the moment of conception?
Through "guerilla warfare of the mind" we can begin to live more free lives, and understand what we are by clearing away habitual ways of thinking/acting. For people who have read SSOTBME (another highly recommended Ramsey Dukes book), this book explores darker and deeper terrain and aims at a more intense rewiring of readers perceptions. This is one of the most original books i have ever encountered, and it would be difficult to match. A very interesting characteristic of Dukes' work is the way ideas weave through his various writings, forming an interesting body of work that seems to constantly develop and progress. So, if you have read anything else by Ramsey Dukes you should definitely get this one.
One very tempting comparison to make with this book is to the movie "Fight Club"... they share the general idea of changing the way you live, living outside of convention, and testing the limits of what your mind will let you get away with. I would not be surprised in the least to find out that Fight Club is inspired by this book (well, actually... it would surprise me if Chuck Pahlaniuk, authour of Fight Club, was interesting enough to have even heard of Thundersqueak).
Your will not regret buying this book, it is totally amazing!
