The Book of Results
Casting sigils is a highly effective form of sorcery and Sherwin provides a sound overview of the process. He cuts through the cant, rhetoric and old-fashioned moral baggage associated with magical practice and shows us how to use sigils to influence the subconscious, bypassing the often contradictory and usually self-sabotaging internal dialogue of the conscious mind. Sherwin takes the process of working with sigils and develops it into a fully ritualised technique. He describes a daily regime that, at first glance, seems to owe more to Abra-Melin than to Chaos magick. Some may think he strips magic(k) of its mystery, romance and grandeur, if so you should look elsewhere if you are seeking enlightenment, union with the Divine, or fancy a chat with your Holy Guardian Angel. However, if like most of us, you simply want to create and fire a number of sigils to help you manifest your desires (sex, wealth, material things); THE BOOK OF RESULTS provides the information you need.

I have the 1983 fourth edition of Ray Sherwin's little book, which happens to include essays on Sigilisation as a bonus to his original 1978 'Book of Results'.
