The Devil's Notebook is the fourth book written by Anton LaVey. It was published by Feral House (ISBN 0-922915-11-3) in 1992; the first original collection of LaVey's writings to be published in two decades.
The book contains forty-one essays, each lined with the collected wisdom, humor, and dark observations of the founder of the Church of Satan. The High Priest speculates on such topics as nonconformity, occult faddism, Nazism, terrorism, cannibalism, erotic politics, the “Goodguy badge,” demoralization and the construction of artificial human companions.
Like P.T. Barnum, Ben Hecht and H.L. Mencken before him, LaVey zeroes in on humankind’s limitless capacity for self-deceit and self-denial. Included are instructions for the creation of what LaVey terms "total environments," or places of magical evocation, where the enlightened may escape the deleterious effects of contemporary existence.
