Review by wyvernfriend
As an introduction this approaches the slippery subject of Wicca quite well. It's more about Wicca than witchcraft and the topic of witchcraft is treated more as a sub-set of Wicca than a seperate topic. It's one of those books that isn't bad to read when you've read some other books because it gave me a feeling of ah-ha about certain topics. Not incredibly in-depth, but then again it isn't ment to be, it is an interesting introduction to the topic and while I did disagree with some of it that was more on a personal level than actual disagreement. It's also quite amero-centric, there is little mention of how to find others outside the US, but that's a fairly minor issue in this quite substantive book.
