Publisher's Summary

The purpose of this work is not the enunciation of any special philosophy or doctrine, but rather is to give to the students a statement of the Truth that will serve to reconcile the many bits of occult knowledge that they may have acquired, but which are apparently opposed to each other and which often serve to discourage and disgust the beginner in the study. Our intent is not to erect a new Temple of Knowledge, but rather to place in the hands of the student a master key with which he may open the many inner doors in the Temple of Mystery through the main portals he has already entered.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Kybalion to be better than the print version?

    The narration was great and the author's intent was captured through this audio masterpiece.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, most definitely!

    "What a Great Narration! Of an AMAZING piece!"
    Would you listen to The Kybalion again? Why?

    Yes absolutely!

    The greatest works of philosophy I've read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite portions were the discussions of Effect and Mentalism.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Moon – was your favorite?

    He narrates excellently this great philosophical piece!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This shouldn't be a film but a book that everyone reads at least once in their lives.


    Any additional comments?

    Great narration!

    "well done"

    This book is available in many formats, (mostly free) both audio and epub. Jeff Moon's interpretation is one of the better ones and well worth a look-see.
    I was provided a free copy in exchange for a review.

    "Textbook for unreality with regard to all things spiritual"

    Here is a distillation of the theme of this book, "Good and evil are but the poles of the same thing. Up is down. left is right. Right is wrong. Yes means no. No means yes. War is peace. Slavery is freedom. Danger is safety. Darkness is light. Existence does not exist. Cold is hot. ... take any two contradictory thought and smash them together in a profound sounding maxim that can make the initiate feel more enlightened than his or her logic-bound philistine contemporaries and you have caught the genius of this poorly written, book from the 1920s.

    You can see how the Beat Generation screwed up America so bad and killed the arts. Life is death. Urinals are art. Howl is poetry. Yours is mine. Unborn humans are disposable tissue... pick your unreality and dive in to this monument to ill-logic.

    I honestly didn't expect this to be so ridiculous, I thought it was maybe an ancient religious text. It is not.

    This book was provided for free to the reviewer from AudiobookBoom in exchange for an honest review.

    "Seven Principles of Hermeticism"

    The Kybalion supposedly reveals secret knowledge and philosophy passed on through the ages from the Greek god Hermes (or Egyptian god Thoth, if you prefer). It has been secretly passed along until "The Three Initiates" decided to publish it for everyone to see.

    It is broken down into seven principles: Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, and Gender.

    For the most part the book is made up of a whole lot of statements saying how something is ("All is mind", "everything is gendered") with very little evidence or argument to back it up. There is very little in the way of arguing from first principles. Aristotle would be very disappointed.

    Despite the claims of being a work of philosophy it isn't. Or it's a very disappointing one at best.

    Narration was fine. Clear, and well paced. Easy enough to listen to, and engaging enough to keep my attention.
