"Evola . . . had a clarity of mind and a gift for explaining tremendously difficult concepts in nonacademic language. . . . His descriptions of subtle states and the practices that lead to them are as lucid as these difficult subjects allow."
"The essays of the UR Group constitute the most complete and the highest magical teaching ever set before the public. . . . The ultimate goal is the identification of the individual with the Absolute. This is a powerful and disturbing book, and a classic. One can be quite certain that it will still have readers centuries from now."
– Joscelyn Godwin, author of Harmonies of Heaven and Earth
"This collection of essays . . . cover the practical, the theoretical and the unclassifiable, such as the Mithraic Ritual of the Great Magical Papyrus of Paris, the only ritual from the Ancient Mysteries to have survived intact."
– The Watkins Review, Winter 2001/02
"Introduction to Magic is a collection of intelligent and erudite essays (many of them admirably concise)."
– Hagal, May 2001
". . . should be standard reading for any serious academic or practical student of occultism. . . . Experienced occultists will welcome it as a breath of fresh air and a journey into little discussed territories."
– Mark Stavish, The Institute for Hermetic Studies, Mar 2006
". . . an important book for those who study esoteric thought."
– Brigit's Feast, December 2001
" . . . this book is highly recommended without reserve."
– Jason Jeffrey, New Dawn, January-February 2002
"A landmark publication for the new age, delineating clearly between mysticism and magic, written in a Germanic style that allows for unhurried, penetrating insights. . . . You don't read this book, you experience it. . . . A mighty book, like a torrent, that sweeps paltry modern ideas away."
– The Book Reader, Spring/Summer 2002
"This new work in hand is unlike any other book on magic previously published."
– New Dawn, September-October 2001
