3.0 out of 5 stars worth a quick read 30 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not really anything I didn't know apart from pointing at people with hiccups will try that . Oh and peeing in men's shoes made me giggle ! Other than that it's spitting and stamping . Still , quite interesting but not exactly the definitive guide I thought it might be

4.0 out of 5 stars The Witch's Encyclopedia of Folk Superstitions and Divinations 9 May 2014
By Laura Piawlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Detailed enough and yet simple to read and skim through. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants something to read late at night or skim through in the hammock in the back yard.

I love superstition, always wondered where kg come from and why. My grandmother was Black Dutch, I grew up in folklore and superstition I loved this book. Well done Liz Yester. Thank you

2.0 out of 5 stars Very, very, very POOR 10 May 2014
By 5/0 - Published on Amazon.com

“The Witch’s Encyclopedia of Folk Superstitions and Divinations”, by Liz Yetter

This is, at very best, a very, very POOR effort. In fact, it looks to me as almost NO effort beyond collecting a hodge-podge of the easily-obtainable material of others putting the excerpts in rough alphabetical order. The reader is provided little-to-no information about the excerpts, like era of common usage (except “pre-Christian”). Most excerpts aren’t even identified to geographical area of origin, etc.

In fairness, some very few of the excerpts are amusing and/or interesting. But that is neither a credit to the so-called “author” nor does it any way excuse calling this thing a “book”, nevermind an “encyclopedia”.
