Publisher's Summary

Renowned esoteric scholar Manly P. Hall gives us an overview of the history of Thoth Hermes Trismegistus. He begins with a short piece of fiction, which he was known to do, in which he illustrates the tale of Hermes defeating a dragon in a temple, as the neophyte and initiator observe.

Moving to nonfiction, he discusses the identity of Hermes, the lost writings of Hermes, the Book of Thoth in particular, an introduction to Poimandres, and ends with his simplified and condensed translation of Poimandres.

As long as you don't know yourself ....

As long as you don't know yourself you won't be able to understand others, and this will cause a life long struggle while communicating.

No real substance of content

The narrator was very good!
The expected content... not so much.
I thought I'd hear more about the aplication of hermetic principals. instead, it is a diatrab about gods and drmigods, higher and lower classes of initiates. Overall ok book.

Great but short

I had no idea it would be that short. It is a brief introduction to the man and a few anecdotes
