Doctrines of Hermes Trismegistus - Manly P. Hall As always, I enjoy Manly P. Hall's works. I've slowly been making my way through all of them, and I may not always agree with his analysis, but I can say one thing: His knowledge is astounding, his heart is great, and while few people have the breadth of his understanding, he obviously holds no grudge, and gives everything he's got with an open hand. Granted, this field is rife with cooks, madmen, and aristocrats, and tens of thousands of really bad books have been based on these related fields of study, but at least THIS author can retain his sense of humor. :) I wish the world was full of his like.
