About the Author
Joshua Free first began by receiving personal apprenticeships from his early years and progressing through his entire life, including various Christian Gnostics, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, O.T.O. Ordo Templi Orientis, A.A. Argentium Astrum among others. He was officially initiated into the Pheryllt Druid tradition at the age of 12 and began leading his own Gnostic Druid organization at 13. Joshua Free is the founder of Mardukite Ministries (2008) and the prolific author of many works including Sumerian Religion, Babylonian Myth & Magic, The Sorcerer's Handbook of Merlyn Stone, The Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible, and many others. In the 1990's he was the youngest initiate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids in England until he left to independently pursue the origins of the Celtic Druids - resulting in the "Book of Elven-Faerie". Although best known for his work on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the "Mardukites", his work on the Dragon Legacy and modern Pheryllt Druid tradition is also paramount. His writing has even appeared, together with Myrddin Wolfe (who provided the 'Introduction' for "Wizardry" from the "Sorcerer's Handbook of Merlyn Stone"), in the final volume from Douglas Monroe's 'Merlyn Trilogy': "The Deepteachings of Merlyn", published in 2011.

The first part teaches the foundations of magick and presents an overview of different systems of magick including druidism, Simon's Necronomicon, and Enochian magick. The chapters kind of build on each other and it's a fluid transition from one system to another. In a way, this part of the book is kind of a buffet, offering a little bit from a few different systems, allowing the reader a quick glimpse into each so they can have a better idea which path to pursue. While informative and useful, I don't think there's enough to master any of the systems presented, but at the same time the reader can tap into a lot of potential if they use what's written here.
The second part of the book almost seems like excerpts from the authors personal journal. This seems like a compilation of notes derived from experimentation with the different groups he's been involved with. Like the first part, some rituals are included, but for me the most interesting were the different notes on principles of magick and related ideas.
Overall, this is a good book for anyone wanting to learn about magick and how to practice it. It won't make a mystic out of the reader, but it can certainly get them started. And even for the experienced wizard, this is an enjoyable read.
