A series of letters written during the late period of Crowley's life in the 1940s posthumously published first in 1954 with a foreword by Karl Johannes Germer.
The volume opens with the original foreword by Karl Johannes Germer followed by a preface from editor Israel Regardie and includes a list of Thelemic volumes and Index for reference.
Magick Without Tears is no less than a personal encyclopedia of magickal instruction, annotated by experience and explained in unguarded language, covering: the Qabalah, how to use it as a tool rather than merely a system of reference; the symbols of magick; etymology and its philosophy; the three major schools of magick--white, black and yellow--their approach to life and use of power; hints for meditation and astral projection...
