by Israel Regardie
Foreword by David Cherubim
Introduction by Robert Anton Wilson
This is the masterful biography of the Magus Aleister Crowley, written by the one person most qualified to write it. Israel Regardie was a friend and student of Crowley's, and served as his personal secretary for some time. In this book, Regardie manages to write a fair and balanced view of Crowley. It is an intelligent and insightful look into Crowley's life, Magick and Mysticism. Dr. Regardie interprets all this from the wisdom of experience. An initiate of the Golden Dawn, O.T.O. and A.·. A.·., Regardie writes with deep insight and compassion, openly revealing his own feelings, and thus providing a unique insight into Crowley. This book is the classic biography of Crowley!
"It's the best book on mysticism that I've read in ten years or more." Alan Watts speaking to Robert Anton Wilson
"I avidly read this book when it was first published in 1970. What a joy it was to meet Dr. Regardie some years later and see the mischievous sparkle in his eye as he told his tales of Aleister Crowley. Regardie, a true man of action, braved ridicule and hatred in Crowley's defense when most of today's active proponents of Crowley's teaching weren't even born." James Wasserman, author of Aleister Crowley and the Practice of the Magical Diary
"The Eye in the Triangle is essential reading material for anyone who is seriously interested in learning about the life, Magick and Mysticism of Aleister Crowley." David Cherubim, Aleister Crowley Foundation
Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was an Adept of the Golden Dawn and he was one of the greatest exponents of the Western Esoteric Tradition of the 20th century. He was also an initiate of Aleister Crowley's Order of the A.·. A.·., and he was a IXth degree initiate of Crowley's O.T.O. It was his main ambition to preserve and perpetuate the teachings and work of Aleister Crowley and the Golden Dawn. His success in this task has profoundly influenced occult thought. From the age of 20, Regardie worked as Crowley's personal secretary. During this period, until their bitter parting, Regardie was one of the few who knew Crowley well. He was one of the few who were qualified to provide first-hand, personal insight into the character and personality of one of the major figures in Western Magick. In addition to his extensive writings, Regardie practiced as a chiropractor and as a neo-Reichian therapist. He taught Psychiatry at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and contributed articles to many Psychology magazines.
This is the second New Falcon edition of the book (2014) edited with a Foreword by David Cherubim from the Aleister Crowley Foundation.
