There is a lot in Prime Chaos that I didn't agree with (as odd as it is to disagree with a system that says nothing is true, and everything is allowed). Why, I honestly can't say, some of the concepts and ideas just grated against my psyche or something. Admittedly though, I won't ignore what was said, and do plan on trying out the Rituals and Experiments both mentioned in the book, and that were spawned from my reading, just to put some of the theories up for testing. It did have many interesting points, I enjoyed the Liber Nice and Liber Nasty section, for they give good, well-defined, but not overly complex explainations on Discordian and Lovecraftian Mythos. Phil Hine seemed to counter himself on occasion, he even mentions it at one point, on how he viewed regular Magical excercise and group workings. I feel once it was all said and down, that his seemingly conflicting attitude was simply to help break the reader out of dogma and guilt cycles set up in other Magical Systems, but though to point out what the dogma was around is a valid need for the modern Magician, it does not have to be taken so strictly.

Prime meaning first, meaning original – and the basis, of course, of the word, "Primer".

And that's what this is. It won't tell you a great deal (other than anectodal) about the history of Chaos magic, but it will tell you about doing chaos magic.

The Contents rather spell it out:
Chaos is everywhere
Dynamic Ritual
Group Effects
Liber Nice and Liber Nasty (Discordianism and the Cthuhlu mythos and magic).

This work is aimed at practitioners, rather than anyone else, but practitioner or not, reading it will give you a general overview of what Chaos practice is about – as much as anything can, that is.

For a study of chaos magic, this may not be the best book (though it should not be neglected).
