From the Preface: "This book is really a continuation, though in greater detail, of my former book Magic: its Ritual, Power and Purpose. So many questions were asked by readers of that little work, that it was thought that a more detailed treatment of the subject would help to meet the evident need for information on this subject. I recognise, of course, that my efforts do not reach the standard of those who are the acknowledged stars of the magical firmament - Eliphas Levi, Dion Fortune, Israel Regardie and many others - but it may be that, from the standpoint that is mine, I may be able to help those who are "desirous of knowing in order to serve" to take the first step along the road of magical achievement.... As in my former book, so in this, I have endeavoured to give the principles involved in such a way as to encourage the reader to do some constructive thinking in applying them in actual practice - my distaste for "tabloid information" being as strong as ever!"
