Some books on personal transmutation need to be written a little clearer. Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas looks at transmutation through the ages, and how people can transmute themselves into the form that they want, taking control of their present for a better future. By following the steps suggested by this book one may be able to better understand why they face so many problems and how to deal with those problems. This book gives insight into ways to solve those problems and live a more fulfilling life.
It is written for those who are serious about taking control of their lives. The text can be confusing. The act of coining new words to ensure clearer meaning sometimes ends up making the text occluded. However, the comparison between different myths and legends make the book worth it for those interested in a new take on old legends. There is also some intriguing information for those searching for a way to integrate alchemy into their lives. For those looking for a more enlightened path, this book may help them find that.
