The guy that wrote this book was I guess a member of the Rosicrucians. After downloading the book awhile back and gradually reading different sections of it Joseph Weed seems to be pretty insightful with a lot of the ideas he has in the book- Even though I certainly don't agree with every section in the book, most of his ideas were well thought out and explained. The book was originally published in 1968, and I wondered if anyone has read any other books by this author that they can recommend since I found this book very interesting.
(I'll never get my goetia of dr. Rudd book read, that I recently received from barnes & noble if I keep finding interesting old books like this that I've saved on my computer in the past; but it's worth it. Wisdom of the Mystic Masters is well worth tracking down, either on the internet or else in a used book store if you can find a copy.
