Over fifty years ago Israel Regardie set himself the gigantic task of making accessible to the intelligent layman the root principles upon which Magic is built - principles which Aleister Crowley devoted his life to exploring and revealing.

The result is "The Tree of Life, " a book which has become the definitive overview of the western Mystery Tradition.
