5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and well written book. 16 July 2000
Format:Paperback
This book was a good book that was well laid out gave information I have not read before. There were also a good set of lists at the end of places to write to. This book didn't repeat the same stuff I have read a hundred times but included new stuff as well and is a must for those interested in the craft.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb, informative book. 27 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book is not an easy read, it is well worth the effort. It gave far more in-depth information than any other book I have read on Wicca. I would not recommend it for a complete beginner, but for someone wanting a more intellectual, comprehensive work, this is absolutely superb. In particular, the many links with Jungian psychology are fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 4 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I found that Vivianne Crowleys background in psychology put a lot of Wiccan belief into a context that I could relate to on an inner level. A much more compelling and thought provoking read than a lot of books on the subject that tell you how to 'go through the motions' without reference to the inner meaning to oneself, and ones personal growth as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Learners, a Good Read for Any of Us 22 May 2007
Format:Paperback
This was the very first book I read when I started learning about the Craft in the 80's and its still on my suggested reading list for any newbie's who come our way. The author gives a very clear, step by step guide on what would be required and what to expect on your path as a Wiccan. The meditations are beautiful, and still read and re-read by me often. My first copy fell to bits from overuse, so if you are looking for advise, mine is read this book first.

4.0 out of 5 stars easy and easy to follow, Wiccan starter book 24 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is very simply layed out with its modern photographs bringing Wicca bang up to date. For those who have never read anything on the subject before it take a refreshing look into 'Wicca' with good-break downs of the Wiccan way. If you are too timid to buy one of the other books with the witches on the cover, incase you scare your friends, this is the book for you! It worked for me, and has encouraged me to read more on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Advanced information for the Bookwitch 12 Mar 2002
Format:Paperback
Crowley is a distinct change from authors such as Silver Ravenwolf and Fiona Horne. I would recommend this book for an older witch (not your typical teen witch material)
It contains good practical information and diagrams, is referenced well to many diverse sources and is an informative read. It was the second Wicca book I read (yes, the first was Fiona Horne! I thought it was good too... I'm not ashamed)
This book will make you think and answer the questions that you didn't even know you were asking....
so just to re-iterate: serious witch who loves to research? buy this book then! no really, go on...

1.0 out of 5 stars For Coven Witch's only 8 Sep 2005
Format:Paperback
I was very disappointed when this book arrived. Having read reviews of the book it sounded like the perfect grounding in Wicca. However it is only focused on the coven form of wicca. I thought that maybe some solitary practices or information would be included.
I would suggest that solitary wiccans do not buy this as it has no information for them at all.
