I am thinking about and very keen on buying The Kabbalstic Handbook for the Practicing Magician. I want to know, does it assume any prior knoweldge on the subject? is it aimed at beginners? Can a beginner pick it up and gain and benefit from it completely and totally?
How does it compare to Donald Creig's Modern Magick? Is it better than Modern Magick? What is the relationship between the two? Which one is better as an introduction?
Also, is it neccessary to buy Kabbalistic Life Cycles and the Mastery of Life in order to complement and work with The Kabbalistic Handbok for the Practicing Magician? Can you work with The Kabbalistic Handbook without needing Kabbalistic Life cycles?
Thank you very much!
