I absolutely love this book, it has every spell you might ever need,explanations of herbs ,and they are easy spells for the lazy pagan(myself).I still refer back to this book on special or really any occasion.I also remember meeting Mrs. Morrison, and having her sign my book, at my friend Tara Nelson's shop,'New Ages And Other Worlds' In Murphysboro Ill.( The finest shop in this area!)I have the 1st edition cover and will always cherish this book. I hope to see Mrs. Morrison again when she passes thru Southern Illinois. Blessed Be :)

The first time that was looking for a spell book, I went over and I saw this book. At first I thought that this book was going to be boring, but man was I wrong. That book helps you on everything, you need help with school there is a spell for that, you need a spell for computers thier is a spell for that too. I would tell others to get this book if you want to see REAL MAGIC this book is for you!!

For anyone interested in how to simplify life, this is a must-have. Ms. Morrison takes the old ways and brings them into the time manageable 21st century! Although not a fan of using other's spells myself, there is much more to this book than the spells.

It has a spell for everything you might need; Job, PMS, Parking Space, finding your car afterwards, etc.. I really like this book and always use it as refference for anything!!.. I rate it as excellent.

The spells in here really work! One time, when I was looking for the remote but couldn't find it, I said a 'Recove Lost Item' chant from this book, and the remote was under the next place I looked! I recomend this book for anyone who is interested in magick that really works!

I was drawn to this book while browsing many titles. It has many easy to do spells.I used the hematite stone to help with a speedy recovery after surgery and it worked great. Excellent book for anyone with busy, hectic schedules.

Some of us have very fast paced lives and yet we don't want to forget who we are. Dorthy shows you in this book. How to keep it simple and just as powerful as if you had done an all day ritual for a spell. I've mixed, matched,combined and altered some of her spells and they all turn out to be fullproof. Great book for any witch or wiccan to have on their shelf.

This book is so great! Over 300 spells! I have never found a book with so many easy spells. All the books I've found have had about 10 spells and they tell the basic info about Wicca. But I already knew the basics and I wanted the spells! I recommend this to everyone who needs a spell!

This book is full of wonderful spells and rituals to solve any problem. A must-have for any Witch or magick-user. Dorothy Morrison really knows what it's like to be an old time Witch in a modern world. Loved It!

Somehow when I picked up this book I expected to find some of the same fluff that most Witchcraft/Occult/Wicca books have tended to contain lately. Yet I foundd this book very useful. Some spells like the one to protect you computer from viruses do seem a bit silly. But this book gave me lots of ideas. I never thought about making my own incense before. It seemed too... I don't know complicated maybe? Yet it sounds simple enough that I just might try it. And the spell to get visitors to leave was a God send! And it worked!

I have purchased many books on the subject of 'modern magick', and found this book to be one of the best. A veritable wealth of information. Definitely a great reference tool for all areas of magick, includes info on crystals, herbs, oils..etc.. Excellent for the beginner, and helpful for all. Easy ingredients and methods Great for solitary natural kitchen witches ! Thanks Dorothy !
