Of all the books on wicca I have read, I would say that this one is defiantly an advantage for a beginner, or for a Christian who does not perceive that wiccans and Neo-Pagans are simply a peaceful race who worship nature. Dorothy seems to compare Christianity to wicca intensely at the start of this book, and soon after the first chapter has many ways to improve your life. This book explains why good things happen to Christians who ask for it, how real magick works, and how you can do your own magick. Note that if you are not a beginner, I would highly recommend another book for someone of your level, and if you are a beginner, I would rather recommend a book entitled "Inner Magic" by Ann Marie Gallagher. If you are annoyed of the `happy' or `fluffy bunny' side of wicca and paganism, I suggest you get any book by my favorite dark neo-pagan, Konstantinos.
