I picked up this book because i wanted to explore the world of solitart wicca. This is one of the most helpful books for solitaries considering there isnt much on it. He teaches other aspects of wicca than the usual- He explains what it really is to live wicca in your everyday life other than in just ritual. i took off one star because i thought that it kind of got boring towards the end. i thought the first one was a little better. great book though!!
