Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
Christopher Penczak writes well and shares his knowledge with readers. It is refreshing to come across writers who know the difference between magick and magic. Magick is what you are and do. Magic is pulling a rabbit out of a top hat at an amateur magician's show for children! Christopher Penczak knows his Magick with a capital M. It would be nice if more writers did when they use the word.
Penczak has crafted a well-written book that offers genuine magick for any moment or every moment. He explains what real magick is, and how and why it works. The invaluable techniques and approaches the author shares with the readers are more accessible.
The point of the book is that magick is not just all around you, the magick is you. The magick is within. This is close to the Vedantic perspective that all truth lies within the person and is accessible. Look within!
Healing magick is discussed, among other topics. There are eight chapters in the book plus correspondence charts. The appendix section is certainly a nice companion for ready references. The worlds of magick and spellcrafting are also explained in concise, clearly written material.
If you enjoy the writings of the eclectic Witch, Christopher Penczak, you will find this an enjoyable book to read and study. One thing is definitely sure: Christopher Penczak knows the difference between Magick and magic, and this is one of his finest books to date. Highly recommended.
