It opens with his formative years, that seemed to inexorably lead with karmic inevitability to his initiation as an adept in the esoteric arts. The reader follows his numerous exotic travels around the world, including mystical and life-changing encounters in Egypt. His experiments with sex and drugs are also expounded upon, as is his central philosophy detailed in The Book of the Law.. An incredible publication and required work for all those interested in the life of a remarkable man and the occult.
