The Camel Rides Again by Alan Chapman

"The Camel Rides Again: A Primer in Magick" by Alan Chapman is quite simply the best book on the subject I've ever read. The paperback can be acquired here cheaply or you can download the pdf for free.
In six short chapters and one appendix, this book strips down Magick to its barest essentials. To beginners, it offers a basic understanding of what Magick is and how it can be worked. To more advanced practitioners, it offers an exciting new perspective on the definition of Magick, and its relationship to personal enlightenment.
You can find Alan Chapman along with Duncan Barford at their blog The Baptist's Head: Bring on the Eschaton! Check out more written works from their self-publishing Heptarchia Press.

Update: New book "Advanced Magick for Beginners" announced today!
Thanks to Ian for posting it in the comments!
