I've spent years with Enochian and many different books, and this one is a great one that spells it all out in simple to understand and easy formats for anyone.
Go. There is one contention which does not involve the author. Beware of folks claiming this to be "the most powerful system of magick." It is, clearly and by a wide margin, the most convoluted (thus too easy to project upon). I have for many years followed other's research and developments, such as the late Ben Rowe, Vincent Bridges, Aaron Leitch and others who've worked on the significance of letter pairs etc.
The most interesting potential is that the system May... in an overall sense, be an attempt to model a hyper dimensional process. This is speculative. I think it unfortunate Dee felt the need to apply cryptography to something already overly convoluted. "God is not the author of confusion." Some pull no punches in claiming Dee was had by astral critters.
What it seems to be, imo, is a grand rehash or compilation like effort of all that came before as regards Kabbalistic thinking, the Solomonic and or Grimoiric Traditions and similar. I've also found others (online) who actually have gone the nine yards in manufacturing/using all pertinent items as described in source material. It was a bit of a let down to hear that by employing such high standards nothing much came about. But then what if some other (ie) more right brained person did same? Jung observed that enthusiasm acted like a fuel to mystical experiences and I can verify that. So it may be the mind set you bring to the system overall. But again, the ritual aspects themselves are addressed in other books.
A final observation, which is naturally outside the scope of this effort, is Dee's final portrait. Google that...and look closely. They say pictures are worth 1k words. Surely the expression on Dee's face tells all. If anyone was ever able to summon his spirit and asked what happened therein, he'd likely say something akin to what Homer was fond of saying, "DOH!"
I found that the book lacked a couple elements - like explaining what's the point of elemental and zodiacal attributions for individual letters at the Great Table, and mentioning the infamous wife-swapping episode that put an end to Dee and Kelley's communications with the angels. But it's still worth it's five stars, as these informations are not hard to find at other places, and it's an enormous achievement to make such a complicated system easy to access and understand!
