Format: Paperback
I am convinced, more and more, that this important work found its way to me as the answer to a prayer. Simply because, when I first embarked upon this Path, many of the books spoke of spells in a rather dodgy manner. One "popular" author simply adressed this by staiting, "You have to believe in spells for them to work" and left it at that, without giving the reader any reason "to believe"! How aggrivating! I was almost ready to drop what we call "spells"...at least before this book found its way into my heart. Laurie Cabot uses science and the latest developements in theoretical physics, and physics in general, (which are all proported by such illuminaries as Einstein, Niel Bhor and Stephen Hawking, etc...) to discuss how spells work. Her book describes a Universe which makes sense to the Witch! For this, alone, it is worth the purchase of the book! Her description of The Science Tradition of Witchcraft is fully grounded in fact, as revealed by her bibliography and such authors as Michael Talbot, Fritja Capra, F. David Peat, Itzhak Bentov, PhD. Fred Alan Wolfe and John Gribbin, etc... While her non-"Wiccan" history is certainly very well grounded in fact, her Wiccan history stummbles on the very odd occasion (only once, or maybe twice, as I can currently recall). But, we must take into account the date in which it was printed- in fact, the date in which it was written, as the 2 are usually off by a number of years. She may, very well, have been told something by a Gardnerian Witch, from the Gardnerian Book of Shadows, and neither of them were the wiser. However, 10 years has elapsed since then. She is always very well researched.Also, the sub-title is different than the original US publication, which was "The Earth, The Moon, and the Magickal Path to Enlightenment.Read more ›

I am surprised to read that some reviews on this book appear to be negative. We must all take from everything what we find most beneficial and find other information from alternative sources.
I personally admire Laurie Cabot for the way she has tackled certain issues in the book. It was a pleasure to read as in parts it's like a story of her own experiences and very real ones at that. Or general information on Witchcraft history. Perhaps the angle of religion disturbs some in this book. But it is a witch book and not Wiccan, therefore there is a difference and this should be addressed before critisizing. I would recommend this book and infact the first time i saw it a male friend of mine, gave it to me to read, not knowing i am a witch. Enjoy, for you will feel your own truth within.

Format: Paperback
This is a classic! Laurie Cabot's book is full of information you just don't see elsewhere. I have a vast library of books on witchcraft and magick but I must say that this one is in my top 5. It is full of practical advice and spells as well as some truly invaluable meditative exercises which I use frequently. Most of the spell ingredients are easy to get hold of (except one or two eg. Where on earth do you find hair from a live wolf in Wigan?!) There is also quite a good section of Laurie's own experiences as a witch in the States and some history of the craft thrown in for good measure. All interesting stuff. Suitable for beginners and those who know their athame from the their boline alike.

Format: Paperback
This is a terrible book.
Although I am a Wicca, I find it very uncomfortable the way the author twists history to portray men and Christianity as the cause of all ills.
It seems to be trying to replace the close mindedness of fundamental Christianity with the close mindedness of fundamental Wicca, and seems to leave no place for mystery. The author also seems to portray loose ideas of science in a way that seems awkward.

Format: Paperback
I accidently inherited this book from a friend I lived with at university, call it fate! It was the first book on the craft that I read and boy was it good. Laurie covers not only her own experiences but also those of other witches that she has had contact with. It told me all the things that I wanted to know at the right time. It also confirmed, and made sence of a lot of fellings I had as a child.
Though I do agree with a nother readers views, Wolf Hair? Hmmm... Other than this it is a fantastic read.
I am now a great deal further on with my studies of the craft and I still refer back to this book on a regular occurrence. My favourite bit is the Crystal countdown.
If you are wondering whether or not to buy this book... Please do, if you like the craft (or are interested) you will enjoy this book.
Good Luke
Love light and Peace

This book includes many facts on the history of Witchcraft as explained in Valiente's A Rebirth of Witchcraft. It has some interesting information, like the Cosmic Laws of Pythagoras, Alfa-and Egyptian visualisation. Cabot is a Witch living in Salem, Cowan also wrote some good books on Shamanism practise. The Power of the Witch is a must have, the appendix includes spells. It has a great value for little money :-)

If you have ever wondered how/why spells work- I can't recommend this book highly enough! Also, if you've wished to explain how spells work to a student, using a logical, rational, left-brained approach, the same applies! extraordinary!
This book deserves 5-stars, and more!
