'Tracing the roots of Crowley's ideas, and demonstrating their enduring relevance, Suster has produced a much needed reappraisal of the 'Great Beast'. Crowley's to the understanding of the occult sciences are matched only by his daring experiments in the development of human consciousness. His mystical system encompassed Buddhism, western magic, the Qabalah, Yoga, The Tarot and Taoism, this book offers a fascinating exposition of a supremely practical spiritual discipline.'
