Perfect introductory book!
on 1 March 1999
I was given this book, ironically enough, for Christmas when I was fifteen. After reading it, I found that I had learned enough abot Wicca to choose my path. I think this book is aimed at the person who is considering Wicca, but either is not ready for a coven in their mind or does not want to join one. It is also for the practitioner who is disappointed with their coven or thier present solitary workings. Those who know a bit about Wicca may find the first few chapters redundant, but will find that even they learn some specifics. I learned more about Wicca, but wouldn't call it a book for those who aren't considering the Craft to read for reference- the author wrote a book just for that purpose. I especially enjoyed the rituals he included. Cunningham makes it clear to the reader that they are not required to follow the rituals point-by-point to have effects, which is EXACTLY what I was looking for in my religion. I still use it monthly and recommend highly to the said people.
