With The Four Powers, Nicholas Graham's first book, he has produced the book he wished he had when he was just starting out in the world of magic and the occult. Rather than rehashing old information, Graham has instead mixed tried-and-true techniques with information from his own experiences and experiments. Magic is esoteric, but is often made even more intimidating by the use of difficult language and long-winded explanations intended more to impress peers than to teach. Nicholas Graham has put in a lot of effort to make sure that everything in The Four Powers is clear and usable no matter who you are. Those new to magic, and even those with a bit of experience, can make use of the lessons in this book. The author promises that anybody who practices the methods and experiments in The Four Powers with dedication will reap vast rewards physically, mentally, and spiritually.
