Publisher's Summary

Condensed Chaos provides a practical introduction to Chaos Magic, one of the fastest growing areas of western occultism. Through it, you can change your circumstances, live according to a developing sense of personal responsibility, effect change around you, and stop living as a helpless cog in some clockwork universe. All acts of personal/collective liberation are magical acts. Magic leads us into exhilaration and ecstasy; into insight and understanding; into changing ourselves and the world in which we participate. Through magic, we may come to explore the possibilities of freedom.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Intriguing Content, Inferior Narration.

The content of the book is good and most of it is easy to understand, and I'd recommend it to beginners or anyone with misconceptions about it.

However there should have been post production work on the narration as there is great fluctuations in the quality of his voice as well as loud hissing from his 'S's. Not the quality expected from something supposedly recorded in 2021.

Condensed is accurate.

This was a good experience to listen to and brought up good ideas so definitely recommend, but I find as a whole might be more fundamentally useful as a physical book. To earmark and reread sections, and to explore/expand upon in your own time. I could see this being well thumbed.
The narrator was good too.

still as sober and insightful as ever

discovered this book 20 years ago and was blown away. Hine's insights still hit the spot whenever I need a refresher, and his humor still charms me. The reader was excellent, totally nailed it. A joy to hear it aloud.

Excellent source of information...

... and not a bad narrator! Highly recommended for those beginning on the path who need some direction, ie., those who are solitary practitioners of the arts.

Perfect format for this book

I own a copy of Condensed Chaos and i tried to read it a couple of times, but I have been having a hard time reading after working at the computer all day, so this was a great format for the book. Its great because some parts you will probably want to listen a couple of times to assimilate, its a book I can see myself listening over and over, those are my fav audiobooks to have. Also the narrator is really nice!

Clear and concise (zero "waffle")

This is a clear and concise introduction to the enchanting madness that is chaos magick. The tone is light (a lot of the jokes didn't quite 'land' for me) and it's a very easy listen. If you want an introduction to chaos magick written in plain English, this is an excellent place to start.

What a load of flowery woffle! Get to the point!

I found it near impossible to follow. So many unessesary words to bulk this out and repeating the same point in different ways. Condensed!? it is like a broken can of worms!!
