Reading the Octavo is kind of a rehash of some of Peter Carroll's other ideas, but at the same time is a clear extension of where he has developed those ideas to a level of sophistication that mathematically proves his points. The Octavo isn't an easy read, and I recommend doing some research into the technical jargon that Carroll uses, but underneath the jargon the reader will find a concise explanation of specific magical concepts and how those magical concepts fit into our particular universe [...]

A few tenets from this book have influenced my thinking, and Carroll is without a doubt one of the most influential thinkers and writers in modern "occult" (an outdated term) history. I even learned a little bit about physics.That said, I found this book to be kind of boring and dry, perhaps even willfully obscure. And I'm no mathematician, but my bullshit-o-meter definitely rings at all the passages about the equations and physics of magical influence.Considering that Carroll seems a bit of a p [...]

Ever world has a secret grimoire that contains the magical secrets of the world. For the Disc world, Terry Pratchett’s creation, that Grimoire is called the Octavo. Thus far Earth’s or should I say roundworld’s grimoire is yet to be be discovered. In Discworld it is buried and guarded. Roundworld’s Grimoire has only been revealed in fractured or fragmented form.Roundworld is much different from Discworld in many ways. To name but a few, Discworld rests on the back of a turtle and is supp [...]

I loved this book. It's a really exciting read and feels like someone dropping an alka-seltzer into your brain because it triggers off so many ideas and plans. Peter Carroll for those who don't know is a Chaos Magick bigwig who has written some key texts for those of us who like to prance around, make silly noises and ritually interact with the (rotating, hypercuboid) universe. Chaos Magick for those that don't know is the collision between Aleister Crowley, cyberpunk and post-material informati [...]

Carroll is more tedious and opinionated than usual in his latest tome. The book is little more than half hearted psuedo science with pretensions of intellectualism interspersed with magical tidbits because he knows no actual scientist will ever review it and he has to at least pretend the work has relevance to magic. His aeonic history is a Euro-centric poorly researched and unapplogetically opinionated rehash of his earlier writings.Admittedly I abandoned the book after reading four of five cha [...]

The best book on Magic I've read in years.

This book provides some great food for thought, and it introduces some very interesting concepts.That said, this is what this book is useful about. Other than this, it doesn't really have much to offer. The "practical" aspects are laughable at best and as another review mentions "My bullshit-o-meter rings a lot on those "science" equations about calculating magic etc.About the "scientific" parts. Don't worry if you don't have a background in physics or science. Every single "science" bit in this [...]
