Hello, I'm still quite new to Crowley's actual writings. I've read the Book of Law, Invocation and part of the Book Of Lies (at this point). I've been researching into to his life and Thelema, which I have been very intrigued by in the past.

What are your advice and recommendations?

Thank you

For any real understanding of Thelema (IMHO), you have to start with a thorough knowledge of the life and times of Aleister Crowley. For that, I would recommend his 'Confessions' and Richard Kaczynski's 'Perdurabo'. Both are readily available and both are eminently readable!

In the biography sphere I'd put the Tobias Churton book up there with Richard's book. Reading both of these give you a great feel for Crowley. I regard each as good as the other with both taking slightly different approaches to their subject.
