Mr. Grimassi gives a good explaination of the spirituality and religion of the witch. I feel he has explained the history well and he does state that when it comes to witches almost no two would agree on everything. It's not a How to; 101 book. if you are interested in learning about what witches really are this is a good book. However, as with any good research one should read more than just one book
