Summary

He was the father of the occult, the founder of astrology, the discoverer of alchemy. He was Hermes Trismegistus, and as the scribe of the gods of ancient Egypt, he possessed all divine knowledge... which he passed on to humanity, though only those who have been tutored in its wonders can fully understand it.In this extraordinary 1912 book, three secret initiates to his teachings - who remain anonymous to this day - share their insight with all who seek to understand the mysterious underpinnings of the universe and our relationship with it.
An appreciation of Hermeticism, as the basis of all paranormal philosophies still studied today, is an absolute must for anyone fascinated by magic, the supernatural, and the wisdom of the ancients.

Interesting stuff

If you're interested in occult or mystical teachings then you should find this audiobook really interesting without being as dense and inaccessible to the layman as something by the likes of Crowley which requires a lot of prior study and understanding before you even begin to have an idea of what's being said.
This is, on the surface, simple enough, but will reward deeper study. I bought the Kindle version on a whim, because it was only 46p and I was enjoying it so added the Audible narration. Listened to it over a couple of days driving around at work and really enjoyed it. Some of the ideas might be dated, but since we're talking about apparent source material that comes from Ancient Egypt I don't think 'dated' is that much of a problem.
If you fancy a change from audio stories you might enjoy this. I certainly did.

A bit like reading The book of Revalation

To compare this to Revelation is because of its complexity not the content. This is a hard book to read and I have gone though it three times now and will go back to it. Fortunately it's not long. However the information within is priceless and requires much contemplation.
I marked it down because of the complexity. That's no ones fault it's just big stuff to get your head round. The narrator did well with the material.
The truth isn't out there it's in this little book.
If you have spiritual questions try this.

Big bites of ancient (now age?) wisdom to chew on

This book covers a lot of territory - consciousness, dimensions, physics, science, nature, natural law (Universe, Earth, Human), behavior, mental abilities, responsibility, integrity, and much more.

For someone interested in spiritual development, there's food for thought here. Strangely, I wasn't expecting so much that is relevant today in physics and science to be part of ancient teachings. Interesting.

The Oldest Skeleton Key

Roots. The source for so many teachings. You will recognize many, if you have ears to hear.
