This biography was reasonably informative, but if you knew a little of Aleister Crowley's life then you wouldn't be learning anything new. Focused mainly on his tabloid reputation and his excess. Although entertaining and sometimes insightful it was not quite a fair portrayal. I would probably not have enjoy it if it was a white washing attempt to sanctify Crowley, but i would have enjoyed it if it was an even attempt at both showing his vices and his virtues. All in All in wasn't bad. It was just severely one sided. Although we all enjoy Sex, Drug, and Rock and Roll stories. There is just more to him than that. Portraying Crowley fairly is a daunting task based upon the many mantles that he wore. Good luck to the next guy that wants to wrestle with such a beastly task.
