    1. “همگان، به هوش باشید: هستی، لذت محض است. اندوه تنها سایه ایست؛ می گذرد و نیست می گردد و تنها هستی باقی می ماند.”ظاهراً در اواخر قرن نوزدهم، انجمن های سری جادوگری خیلی در انگلستان شایع شده بوده. اونجوری که توی فیلم ها و داستان ها نشون میده، عضویت در این انجمن ها فقط مختص اشراف بو [...]

    2. This is Crowley's revelation, and it shaped everything he did after receiving it. As a review, this can only be my personal experience with the Book of the Law as a philosophical/spiritual system. 90% of the Book of the Law really jives with me. The central axiom, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law, love is the law, love under will", is music to my ears. The notion that Aeon of sin and restriction, as represented by the dogma of Christianity, is coming to an end, makes a great deal [...]

    3. A good friend who is super into the occult and weird new-agey stuff loaned me a copy of this. It's consistently interesting, but never appeals to me on an ethical or moral level. The guy was obviously either out of his mind or high as FUCK when he wrote it. I mean, dude claims that the whole thing was dictated to him by this ancient pseudo-Egyptian God type entity over three days in 1904, so he is probably not the most credible source on the nature of reality. Despite Crowley probably being out [...]

    4. I read the passages in this book often. There are truly some enlightened and beautiful words written here. No doubt people without esoteric knowledge will be confused and most likely repelled by this book. But it wasn't written for them. Despite his flaws, Crowley was a forward thinking, truly progressive mind. He will always be controversial; prophet to some, anti-Christ to others. One thing is certain, no two people will walk away from this book with the same experience. In these pages are mes [...]

    5. First off I have no idea how to properly rate this book. My best guess is I shouldn't have used this as my introduction to Crowley's work. I read it over the scope of two nights while drinking Guinness late at night. I think this is a book I will have to come back to, maybe when my knowledge of the occult has broadened

    6. This is the book that most often quoted by people interested in Aleister Crowley, and it certainly deserves to be read. As far as understood, I cannot imagine a translation (they do exist, by the way) that would make any sense to anyone other than Crowley. There is, however, a hidden meaning to the entire text(HINT: look at the very end:"THE COMMENT.Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.The study of this Book is forbidden. It is wise to destroy this copy after the first reading.Whosoev [...]

    7. There are books about magick and then there are books that _are_ magick.This is one of the latter.I recommend everyone read it through at least once Then never trust anyone who wants to speak with you about it. Including me.Seriously.

    8. La biografía de Crowley que se adjunta a este libro es tanto o más larga que el propio "El libro de la Ley", un manifiesto lisérgico que el mismo autor asegura fue dictado por el Diablo. Hay en cada uno de estos puntos prescriptivos de tono profético una potente poesía involuntaria que escapa incluso a las intenciones del autor.

    9. Aw hell, I don't even know anymore.I was reluctant to rate this book, but I gotta give props, this book is amazing and had quite an effect on me. It certainly was written in 3 days, but people are still deciphering coded information from its text that yields SOMEtimes historically-accurate prophecy. Other times it seems to have predicted alternate versions of events. I can cite no examples. I cannot review this book, as it seems to have no real author. But I can describe it.Ok wait. It's 3 short [...]

    10. Great book. Not for everyone, for sure. Really something that a one time reading does not do justice to. You could study your whole life and barely lift the veil.

    11. This is a happy little book -- e.g "We have nothing w/ the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world" (pg. 41).Actually, the foregoing has much in common w/ the central philosophy of The Secret; viz, the idea that the suffering and pain of others must be ignored or turned away from lest the observer attract these ills unto [...]

    12. Just brilliant, truly Crowley's masterpiece. We all know that Crowley is not for everyone. However the reader who is educated in world religions, occult and mysticism will truly appreciate this book. Definitely for the discerning reader to pore over and take in. Thelema is really a fascinating concept that I am reading and learning about more and more.

    13. '3. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found.4. Yet she shall be known & I never.'(p. 29)

    14. «Haz tu voluntad será el todo de la Ley». Quien más quien menos conoce de dónde procede ese apotegma. Incluso si es sólo por omisión. Ya sea por un interés por el ocultismo, por sus evidentes ecos nietzschianos o por haber buscado alguna clase de justificación en su individualismo, quien más quien menos está familiarizado con la obra de Aleister Crowley. No es para menos: resulta cuanto menos llamativo hablar de la voluntad en términos de ley. De legislación. Como si la imposición [...]

    15. Made for a nice break from a very serious and challenging book on Buddhist Philosophy from the Oxford University Press, from Peter Adamson's podcast History of Philosophy without Any Gaps, from Sartre's Being and Nothingness, from figuring out how keeping a studio apartment clean is so difficult a task for me, from being too involved in following election campaigns and (more importantly) the Blue Jays' thoroughly impressive playoff push, from attempting a diversified social life as a graduate st [...]

    16. I think the people that go around quoting, "There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt. Love is the law, love under will," and "Every man and every woman is a star," skipped over the parts of the transcript in which demand worship, offer praise to one who gives into one's every desire no matter the consequence because consequences don't matter, says women are at their best when they're adulterous whores that are meant solely as objects of lust, calls out compassion as weakness, says only those of [...]

    17. I read this book mostly as a philosophy and poetry text than a religious one. There are a few ideas in here that definitely appeal to me, but it's the entire portion on Babalon that really captures my attention and imagination.

    18. This is not meant to be easily understood. This makes in not an easy read, even though it may be read quickly. It is meant to be eaten like fine food, eaten slowly and savored. This may be difficult for the new to the path to ingest, but the initiate may have more ease.

    19. I'm not really sure how to going about reviewing this. It's more a piece of prose to be experienced and meditated upon.

    20. this is what you need to get started on your real life.everyone is their own star,the center of their own universeis book is how to get in touch with it what thou wilt.

    21. An absolute must, a library is incomplete without. Even Ron Maki seeks "the answer to the universe". 23 skidoo

    22. Chapter I - IntroductionSpoilers alert! The first spoiler, this book is crap. This book was, in regards to its mythos, "Not spoken by Crowley himself", rather it takes place in one of Mr. Crowley's drug-induced trips. He and his recently married wife (whom married after the first date and said yes to avoid an arranged marriage) decide to take a honeymoon in Cairo. And like any good cliché occultism, motherfuckers gotta take that drug-induced crazy-town to the Pyramids of Egypt. Here I'm told, B [...]

    23. I don't understand it. I'd like to (understand/study) based on Robert Anton Wilson's references, but it doesn't appear to be for me at this point in time.

    24. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.The study of this Book is forbidden. It is wise to destroy this copy after the first reading.Whosoever disregards this does so at his own risk and peril. These are most dire.Those who discuss the contents of this Book are to be shunned by all, as centres of pestilence.All questions of the Law are to be decided only by appeal to my writings, each for himself.There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.Love is the law, love under will.The Priest of the [...]

    25. I had a longer review written out but this will get my point across:"Extraterrestrial entities are apparently relatively familiar with 16th century French literature. Unfortunately, that is apparently all they know of good writing and are woefully incapable of creating anything even remotely near what counts as actual literature."-And-"Crowley is a pre-Internet Nigerian prince. “Evil” is a relative label requiring more qualifications than mere aberrant sex and the affixation of 666 to your n [...]
