I'm not quite sure what the author's sources were for the information and spells contained, but based on obeservations cited below I doubt there is much research, study or even practical knowledge behind it. In the section on "Timing" she writes:

"According to Nordic tradition, the best spell-casting days of the year are Christmas Day and Midsummer's Day (the June 21 equinox). Don't make strangers of the remaining three equinoxes either."

Seeing how there are only two equinoxes (and the 21st of June is not one of them),I have serious doubts about the veracity of what is presented in the rest of the book if the simple and basic terminology of solar events so commonly referred to in many systems of magic - and even in mundane life - is not correct.

I give it 2 stars for being at the least an amusing read and another curio to add to my magical library.

This book is OK but I was disappointed with it overall because well to put it plainly I would say the "curses" in it are pretty lame - it's hard to find a book about witchcraft that isnt written from the 'fluffy bunny' perspective - if you are Wiccan or abide by the Rede this is fine but if you walk a darker path and don't believe in or care about karma there are much better sources of that kind of spell - don't waste your time on this one
