    Rubbish

    The author's "intimate knowledge of the Craft" consists of a disgraceful understanding of both European and American history (he's of the "Wicca is the world's oldest religion" ilk) and a rehash of material that is readily available in dozens of books of equal or better quality. I was extremely disappointed. Too bad you can't return e-books!

    VERY Very lovely and enticing. So intriuging!

    Merry meet!
    I love this book very much so far. So far? That is because I only I have a sample of it.
    This makes me feel even more proud, beyond the reach of outstretched arms among the gloub. I praise this book and hope others find them selves satisfied with these words on these delicate pages!

    Blessed be!
