I recommend reading Gary Lachman’s book: Aleister Crowley: Magick, Rock and Roll, and the Wickedest Man in the World.
He doesn’t dive deep into Crowley’s teachings but rather gives you a sobering overview of Crowley’s life and his influence on pop culture. He strips away a lot of the mystique and to be blunt, bullshit, that surrounds Crowley. There’s no hero worship involved as there is with so many other books about Crowley.
This is the first part of a talk I gave on Aleister Crowley at London’s Kensington Central Library on 15 March 2018. It’s based on my book Aleister Crowley: Magick, Rock and Roll, and the Wickedest Man in the World. Camerawork courtesy of Anja Bjorlo.
