    It's really kind of sad, sad and good.

    I have mixed feelings on this book. The content is wonderful. It is really exactly what I was looking for. On the otherhand, it is overpriced, hard to get and a pretty lousy format. Let me make myself really clear:this is a book I would highly recommend to any Wiccan who is past the 101 stage, it provides a large amount of information aboout stuff that I don't think anyone has written about so clearly and completely. The section on Satanism, for example, told me a lot of things I simply had no idea about...I knew Wiccans weren't Satanists, but I never understood why people said we were, or who real Satanists were. This book fixed that, and cleared up a lot of misconceptions I had about them. And that's just one of the sections. The first part, about the Wiccan Rede, I thought was going to be really basic, and the author seemed annoyed at having to explain it, but it cleared everything up for me. Shee seems kind of frustrated and reminds me a bit of a mom who is saying the same thing for the last time. She explains things very clearly, but she sometimesseems to have a thin veneer of annoyance-like she's writing to get out of explaining something again and again. This didn't really grate on me, because I understand the source of it, but I can imagine people who are used to authors who are all sweetness and light might not like this book. I experienced a wide range of emotions from this book, there was a lot of knowledge in it, and sometimes it made me laugh and other times it made me want to bang my head against the wall, like on the sections where the author talks evolution and about how people abuse statistics and science. My mother is constantly ragging about evolution, and the material in here shows that the author has dealt with some of the same syff I have. At the same time, she's not going on about how bad Christians are like a certain other writer, she goes out of the way to call the snotty Christians the minority in the few pages that deal with them at all. She seems very unbiased, and sometimes she even claims to be biased in the book and still seems not biased. I have NEVER seen a writer say he or she could be biased on something even while they were trying not to be. I respected that. it has been a long, long time since I read a book about Wicca and learned from it. I understand that this book is geared to talk about beliefs, not practices, but I'd really like to see the same author write about ways to worship, not just what people believe. This book raised another thing for me. I've been interested in Wicca since I was about 12, but when I was in highschool I found I didn't like the other Wiccan girls, and I sort of decided I would rather be 'a witch alone' than be with people like that. This book showed me that there were other Wiccans like me out there, and I've decided to go out and try to meet them after 6 years as a solitary. It made me feel a bit less like an outsider. Now onto why I said this was sort of sad... This book is really good and it's published by a lousy publisher! Why isn't someone turning Lelywellyn or ECW onto books like this? With the polish of a good publisher who put it in everybookstore, she'd be the Wicca big thing, and a lot better than that last big thing. I think she reminds me most of Bill Mayher, I was watching Real time and he said almost word for word what she does about discrimination in the book. My boyfriend and I just stared at each other and looked it up, it was way wierd...

    She limps in, her armor damaged. "Got a call from a loner. Dog was attacking him." She yawned tiredly.
