makes order to what sometimes feels like disarray of too much information.

While the text does not reveal the 2 keys to the temple it does open the path to understand the process of mental alchemy. The laws are presented in a way as to enlighten the reader to alchemical operations and the hermetic doctrines. Love this version.

I had never studied hermetic philosophy before listening to this book. This book opened up a whole new can of worms for me. I enjoyed every bit of it and had many eureka moments as I listened. This is my favorite book on librivox.

(4 stars)

I enjoyed this book a great deal, despite not believing in Hermetecism. It was interesting to see the thoughts of this group interpreted in such an overt way, and to therefore be allowed to consider them in depth. Algy does a great job in this: its perhaps my favourite recording of his, excepting one or two of his Shakespearean roles.
