This book was amazing. I'm not quite sure how to go about writing a review for it, so I'll start by saying, that many magicians who turn to writing, have a very arrogant manner of introducing the subject matter. They stress secrecy, overcomplicate things for the reader, and the entire work serves as a way for them to feed their ego. Making it less about actually wanting to introduce the subject to new adepts. This is not the case with Carroll. His writing is straightforward and isn't bogged down with bs.
The wealth of information in these books is also very impressive, and I would recommend these books to anyone who was interested in a heartbeat. Excellent. ( )

Time to re-read.

An interesting theory book on Chaos Magic, but it is sadly lacking a lot of practical exercises. I can understand how some people can see the author as egotistical, but he didn't totally come off that way to me, he just seemed caught in his system. This book is an interesting study into some of the basics of different magic techniques and worldviews. The second half of the book (Psychonaut (which was actually its own book, but they were published together)) is a collection of essays on a variety of topics, which I personally found more interesting than the first half. I'm not sure yet if, or how much I agree with some of the things he said, but an interesting read. ( )

Don't start here - come here after you've read a bit about chaos and indeed about magic(k) per se. This is a working book, not an explanatory one, although it can be read that way. Having said that, don't neglect it.
