Buy it - you wont be disappointed.,
This review is from: Complete Book of Witchcraft (Llewellyn's Practical Magick) (Paperback)
This was the first "real" book on witchcraft that I ever bought, before I even knew that the Horned God had nothing to do with the Devil! I read the first lesson on the history of witchcraft, and suddenly all my scrambled beliefs and ideas slotted into place.
It may be true that it wont have everything for everyone contained in its pages, but if you are wanting a good, thorough overview of basics in the Craft, this is what the book intends to do, and it does it!!
Some people may expect spells etc, but that is not what this book is about. Witchcraft is about bulding on basics and creating your own unique way of working, that's why its called the "Craft of the Wise"! If you want spells, Titania Hardie writes excellent books stuffed with loads of spells for every occassion, and her book Enchanted takes you through the Witches Year, with a master ritual (and lots of variations) for every month.
Ray Buckland is an excellent teacher in the Craft, and I am so grateful to him for sharing his vast knowledge with the rest of us. Thanks, Ray!
