Imagine, if you will, deciding to live your life in exactly the way you want. Grand plans, simple pleasures, or anything in between. Just do what thou art willing to do, and nothing less. For Anton LaVey, this philosophy was best dressed in a smart blend of Mephistopheles and Midway, Des Esseintes and Dark Shadows. He was the consummate carny entertainer, larger than life and enjoying that large life to the maximum. He also felt a need to spread the word, so to speak, in his own way. This earned him his share of accolades and denouncements, and this biography doesn't shirk from describing it all.
Magic, whether spelled with a humble "c" or a rigid "k", depends heavily on ritual and BELIEF. Anton LaVey encouraged a large swathe of our society to BELIEVE that living one's life on one's own terms is actually an option; he gave people of the tumultuous 60's (and beyond) an Archetype to focus on and "follow", all the while knowing that anyone who "followed" him was already on the wrong track. To each his own, and only that.
The tales of adventure that LaVey shared with us can either be taken at face value or with the generous dash of saltpeter. It is obvious that there are not just grains, but pearls of truth in each chapter of his rollicking life, and we readers should just relax and enjoy the whole package of devilish delight, maybe learning a thing or two along the way.
Definitely a worthy read, and a great antidote to the embarrassing portrayal of "Satanism" in today's society. A real gem.
of the high preist of the church of satan. This updated version goes beyond where the 1st edition leaves
off. Blanche Barton has done an outstanding job of putting the revised edition together for all those curious
enough to witness. After finishing the book, I felt as though I spent an evening with the High Priest of the church of
satan himself, Anton Szandor LaVey. I've read his other book, The Satanic Bible and found I had the same beliefs
even before reading it.
The revised edition has revised chapters and a chapter describing the final days of Anton LaVey's life. I won't
give away any other details on the book, you'll have to buy the book yourself to find out more details. If you're a
true Satanist, or a person with an open mind, you'll love this book. If you're a born-again Christian, read the bible
instead. As for myself, I'm neither Christian or Satanist. I would call myself an "I-Theist". This book is very entertaining
and you'll want to read it a second time. Highly recommended book.
