Beyond Case's adept exposition of the two publications mentioned above, he goes beyond and describes the grades of the Order, which did not originate with the publications but were created over time by learned occultists with a firm grasp of Hermetic Qabalah and the process of liberation or awakening. Case's detailed description of each grade with tarot correspondences is priceless and demonstrates not only his understanding of the Western mystery school tradition, but the Eastern yoga tradition as well (the two being closely related).
My only negative, and a very weak one, is the way in which some of the gematria is used throughout - it seems like a slight stretch in certain instances. Most of the explanations of the allegory via gematria, however, are eye-opening and leave little room for doubt as to their validity. The explanation of C.R.C.'s vault, the compendium of the whole universe, as described in the Fama Fraternitatis is brilliant, to say the least.
I can't praise or recommend this book enough to the true spiritual aspirant, especially those who have chosen the path of the Western mystery school of esoteric wisdom. If you're a member of BOTA (Case's Builders of the Adytum), you MUST own this book. It will only strengthen your faith in Case's credibility as a teacher of the mysteries and of the legacy he left behind in BOTA.
