Well although his book is a master work I really struggled with his methodology. It's a long time since I read it so I'm not certain but I think there are better more accessible courses of study to follow as Franz was a very strict hardcore occultist and his course is quite hard to follow properly. Just my oppinion though.. it was a few years ago.
