1.0 out of 5 stars New Age Gobbledygook 4 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is yet another wicca 101 primer rather than a reference on Celtic Paganism. Much of her claims fly in the face of archeologic evidence and credible historic research. Many of the sources Ms. Conway quotes are (at best) out of context. If you desire to learn about Celtic paganism, I would suggest "The Druids" by Stuart Piggott, "Pagan Celtic Britan", "The Pagan Celts", and "Druids, Gods, and Heroes from Celtic Mythology" all by Anne Ross.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but historically inaccurate 7 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Okay. This book has come in for a lot of criticism here, and a lot of it's justified.
However, this was the book that set me on the pagan path, and as such I guess I feel a little sentimental about it.
The history is bad. Okay. That's something you're likely to find in most books on paganism these days, and at least it's vague enough to make people (such as myself) read up on it and learn the "truth," so to speak.
I thought the correspondence tables were quite nice, even if there's next to no information on too many of the deities listed there aside from the mention of their names.
The rituals are the high point of the book for me. Even if they don't quite suit your personal practice, I'd recommend a look at them for ideas on how to write your own.
All in all, a book of limited use, but it makes for a nice read anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Fiction 15 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If this book could recieve a rating of zero stars, it would. IT is absolute and utter fiction. Creative fiction, but fiction nonetheless. Folks, if you are looking for books about Celtic Paganism, SKIP THIS BOOK. The mythology is horrible, the research poor, and how can you possibly put Celtic Gods into correspondence charts?!?!?! A BAD BOOK.

1.0 out of 5 stars No research done whatsoever 8 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
At least, that's what seems to be going on. I boguht this book when I was just beginning my life as a Celtic Druid, and this book, which failed to even /spell/ Magick correctly, confused me to no end. The terms are outdated, the lore and myth is painfully butchered, and this seems to be, more than anything, the attempt to slap a Celtic label on a book of inexperienced Wicca. But, then again, I've always believed nothing can take the place of an experienced, practiced mentor in matters such as spirituality.

1.0 out of 5 stars vacuous, the worst of Llewellyn 18 Oct 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book's greatest weakness is not its complete failure to focus on anything authentically Celtic besides a few deity names. It isn't even the fact that it is a total ripoff of several other books by the same author. No, its greatest offense against the intellect is that it manages to insult history with ridiculous claims such as 'Robin Hood was the leader of the Sherwood Forest covens...'. I pity anyone who takes this book with anything less than a four-kilo block of salt. Among literate pagans it has become the poster child for the assertion that Llewellyn has no actual standards and will publish virtually anything without even a cursory review.
One beneficial side effect of the book (and others by the same author) is that it enables Wiccans, Druids, Asatruar and many other pagans to make common cause: in disliking it they finally reach a point on which they can all agree. Other than that, I search it for redeeming qualities with no success.

What can I say? The woman has 18 books in print, and they're all basically the SAME BOOK. Just with different god-names added in. And as an aside note, if you try the altar setup she outlines in this book, you and your robe are going to go up in flames.

I agree that this is simply Norse Magic with Norse terms and deities replaced by Celtic terms and deities. The subject matter is simply too grand and of too large a scale to be handled in a dinky, badly researched book like this. Sigh.

My only comment is this: Compare this book word for word with Norse Magic. That will say all I have to say.
