Crowley is a difficult read, but no study of the Western Mystery Tradition or modern ceremonial magick is complete without a basic understanding of the man and his works. A good place to start is with his 'Confessions.'

As far as his magical writings are concerned, His "Magick, Liber ABA, Book Four" is a comprehensive text, but hardly for the beginner. "The Magick of Aleister Crowley" by Lon Milo DuQuette is the basic introduction to Crowley and his "Magick".
