    The book is basically a layout of the Golden Dawn system of ceremonial magick, with some pretty lazy and poorly written commentary about various opinions the author holds on a variety of subjects. The GD material is presented in a kind of workbook style, similar to other books of the type; it presents nothing special and is basically just an explanation of what is contained in the Regardie material published in the 70s.

The GD material is presented in a kind of workbook style, similar to other books of the type; it presents nothing special and is basically just an explanation of what is contained in the Regardie material published in the 70s. I diligently approached the material,and after a couple of months contacted to author on Facebook. At first the exchange seemed alright, but shortly after the initial contact I began noticing links to Left Hand Path sites on his page, and the conversations he was having on the page had a very negative tone-- he talked about the importance of developing what he called "the killer instinct," before one developed compassion, for instance. I wasn't sure what he was referring to but as I had been drawn to the material out of an interest in studying White magick, I decided to terminate the contact and discontinue work with the book. I have since come to understand clearly why the book, written for what Cristopher calls. "the solitary practitioner," is targeting people who are new to the study of occultism, as they generally have few contacts with others who might be able to help them deal with what amounts to psychic attack. After I disconnected on Facebook I found myself dealing with a number of phenomenon that are best described in Dion Fortune's excellent book, Psychic Self Defense, as the symptoms of an occult attack. I subsequently researched Mr. Christopher's "credentials" and the only online reference I could find to the "Ra Horakhty" Temple was a Facebook page that hadn't been updated in several years and that had 72 likes. It has taken me the better part of a year to extricate myself from the harrassment that ensued after I blocked the author on Facebook and I would warn ANYONE who is not interested in the magick of the Left Hand Path to avoid this book, and the author, as if their well being depended on it. It was only through great effort and the help of several spiritual healers where I live that I have been able to successfully deal with the consequence incurred by choosing this particular book as a source of learning material for the Holy Kaballah. Additionally the material presented can all be found in other, less negative sources without too much trouble.

    I had my doubts about the author at first because he's a consultant to my teacher. When she started using his suggestions and prescribing them in my work, I didn't like it. Lyam Thomas Christopher demands a lot out of his students. But then the changes started happening. This stuff works, and you needn't wonder how. Lyam lays it out for you in the pages...and by the time you're done reading, you have a grand view of the whole spiritual process.

And you're faced with the choice of whether or not to go down the road that this book offers. The haunting thing is that this is nothing new to anyone in the west. We've all known all along that the road was there. Lyam's approach is grand, but it's not in the least bit overwhelming. The book is grand in scope, but thankfully piecemeal and step-by-step. I thought I knew what magic was. I've read a lot. I know a lot. But in this book the details come together differently. I realize that I've learned almost nothing...yet.

    The book aimed to renew the GD teachings and tried to explain blind spots of it. It also seems more organised in a way with some checklist for those who want to initiate themselves (no matter how organised a magickal book, a learner still needs a teacher anyway) he also refers to bible verses with different interprations aligned with the purpose of this teaching. This book can be good to read with other GD materials, I would not suggest just to read it and practise straight.

    Great writing of the nature of man and our relationships to our spiritual world. Very motivating.
