"The name Aleister Crowley instantly conjures visions of diabolic ceremonies and orgiastic indulgences and while the sardonic Crowley would perhaps be the last to challenge such a view, he was also much more than the Beast, as this authoritative biography shows. Perdurabo (the magical name Crowley chose when inducted into the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn) traces Crowley's remarkable journey from his birth as the only son of a wealthy lay preacher to his death in a boarding house as the world's foremost authority on magick. Along the way, he rebels against his conservative religious upbringing; befriends famous artists, writers, and philosophers (and becomes a poet himself ); is attacked for his practice of the black arts ; and teaches that science and magick can work together. While seeking to spread his infamous philosophy of Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law, Crowley becomes one of the most notorious figures of his day. Based on Richard Kaczynski's twenty years of research, and including previously unpublished biographical details, Perdurabo paints a memorable portrait of the man who inspired the counterculture and influenced generations of artists, punk… (mais)

This book is a compendium of Aleister Crowley’s life, from birth to death, and an overview of his following up till today. As far as I know, it is very detailed and thorough. It does not go very deeply into any one part of his life; it covers the breadth of it. I would have liked more depth in some places, but it is great for what it is.
It gives short biographies of almost everyone that comes into Crowley’s life; while their religious histories may be relevant, a lot of it seems unnecessary.
I would have like to see descriptions of the books he read and wrote, especially those on ‘magick’. It never really explained his religious beliefs, either. Aside from magick, he seems to have believed in Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Kabbalah, along with many other religions. This book never explains how exactly that works. It does explain a few aspects of it, but not enough, in my opinion.
It is well researched, and it thoroughly lists its sources, so one could read more into it if one was so inclined. It remains pretty unbiased throughout, and seems to rely solely on facts with minimal speculating. That is exactly what I look for in a nonfiction book. ( )

Of the five biographies of Crowley I have read, this is my favorite. This book is information rich, densely packed with meticulously cited details. Nowhere else have I seen so many references to passenger manifests and census records; deeply researched indeed. Another good feature is the numerous photos, the great majority of which I had not seen previously. This book is more profusely illustrated than most books which contain photos. To give an example of the level of detail, the author provides four distinct illustrations of advertisements by C. F. Russell for his “Choronzon Club” as well as listing the text and dates for all of Russell’s ads in the Occult Review. This is more than worth the money, in my opinion.

Biography of Crowley, aka The Great Beast, among other things – including Perdurabo, "I will endure".

While perhaps overly sympathetic, this biography has the great grace to be readable – which so many things are not. It is also well supported by evidence – the notes are complete and the bibliography impressive.

Presenting more the man than the beast, it might well do to be balanced against with a less sympathetic tome. It is, however, a good introduction to this incredibly influential figure, taking in not only his magic(k) but his relationships, mountain climbing, publishing and art work.

The outlines of Crowley’s life are well known, but Richard Kaczynski’s monumental Perdurabo – substantially revised and expanded from its first publication in 2002 – fills in endless details. It has long been obvious that Crowley was reacting against his Plymouth Brethren upbringing – it was his mother who first called him the Beast 666, when he was naughty – but Kaczynski has now traced his religious forebears back for five generations. ...as an accumulation of largely reliable data it is the major biography to date.
