    If you re new to paganism, this is one that some people will recommend I cannot stress enough the need to be a critical reader while going through this book, as well as understand that quoting any material by the author CAN and MAY cause you problems further down your pagan path There are a few good topics the author brings up that were otherwise neglected or not explained in layman s terms in other material Something I found particularly useful was that some self magic is equated with self h If you re new to paganism, this is one that some people will recommend I cannot stress enough the need to be a critical reader while going through this book, as well as understand that quoting any material by the author CAN and MAY cause you problems further down your pagan path There are a few good topics the author brings up that were otherwise neglected or not explained in layman s terms in other material Something I found particularly useful was that some self magic is equated with self hypnosis something it took me a long time to realize I also like that bylaws and ethics are discussed to some length here One might even go so far as to say I liked seeing the tonality of I won t do this for you, it s up to you to do it for yourself That s about all I could stomach from the book though.Significant time is spent patting herself on the back with how fast and well she can perform magic or get results It really feels like magics and spellwork are commercialized the magickal minutes sic and other interspersed random notes really break up the material in a distracting way The way the spells and the material components were set also rubbed me wrong Every mundane act is practically given a way to be magickal Can you tell I hate that spelling This takes a bit of the reverence special feeling away from our work.I ve read this book multiple times and always find myself annoyed after the groundwork is done Perhaps it s my fault for expecting something different from framework spells and rituals from the book If that s what you are looking for, you ll be pleased and have room to grow if you so choose to keep it as a FRAME If you re looking for aserious study of Wicca witchcraft without interest in spellwork, there are better books out there

    This book is so incredibly different from the one I thought I read years ago, I just have to count this a newly read I still don t want to touch the SRW debate with a 13 foot pole, and still note that I mof the MorningStar craft type, but this book is not anything like as bad as I remember Admittedly, I couldn t read the long rituals, really, but this book is reallyabout witchcraft and spiritualitythan anything, and the importance of self work What happened to the Burning Ti This book is so incredibly different from the one I thought I read years ago, I just have to count this a newly read I still don t want to touch the SRW debate with a 13 foot pole, and still note that I mof the MorningStar craft type, but this book is not anything like as bad as I remember Admittedly, I couldn t read the long rituals, really, but this book is reallyabout witchcraft and spiritualitythan anything, and the importance of self work What happened to the Burning Times witch I remember from my teens Anyway, love her or hate her, I had to give this book 4 stars It s not great, but it shocked me so much from my memories of her that I gave her the benefit of doubt and stuck with it

    Misleading title Witchcraft is not a synonym for Wicca, which is what Silver seems to disregard here This isof a beginner s Guide to Wicca.Very little is offered to advance the individual practitioner s working skills Definitely a religious book rather than a useful collection of spells.

    This book has lots of information for the average practitioner as well as novice I would recommend it as it supplements other learning materials, making it a robust book.

    As I ve said before in my other reviews of this author, people either love or hate her I say, read the book with your own critical thinking skills There s nothing wrong about reading various author s and their books on the topic of wicca and witchcraft etc SRW is one author, who presents her own style and tradition This book is 18 years old and still quite popular in the pagan community Her writing style feels down to earth to me, I don t feel that she talks down to the reader as some hav As I ve said before in my other reviews of this author, people either love or hate her I say, read the book with your own critical thinking skills There s nothing wrong about reading various author s and their books on the topic of wicca and witchcraft etc SRW is one author, who presents her own style and tradition This book is 18 years old and still quite popular in the pagan community Her writing style feels down to earth to me, I don t feel that she talks down to the reader as some have said in their reviews of her books She s a mama bear type and is willing to share her perspective of what the craft is, in her eyes and worldview There s nothing wrong with that, even if you don t agree with her I enjoy reading her books even if I don t agree with all she presents I respect the time and effort she has put into her work Take what you can from this book, leave what doesn t agree with you and keep on researching reading from various authors

    You know, when you read Silver RavenWolf with an open mind and are a little critical of what you read, you can get something out of her writing She has a beautiful way with words and can really paint a picture This book is the third in her series of Practical Witchcraft for the Millennium I really liked this one, because it is for advanced readers When you are starting your journey on the Craft, there will be a myriad of beginner books but it is not as easy to find advanced books on Wicca N You know, when you read Silver RavenWolf with an open mind and are a little critical of what you read, you can get something out of her writing She has a beautiful way with words and can really paint a picture This book is the third in her series of Practical Witchcraft for the Millennium I really liked this one, because it is for advanced readers When you are starting your journey on the Craft, there will be a myriad of beginner books but it is not as easy to find advanced books on Wicca Now this is one of thelighter advanced books out there, if you want to getting deeper into theory and practice and magick, please look elsewhere BUT if you want an easy to read intro to the deeper aspects of Wicca, this isn t a terrible place to start I would recommend this to anyone who can keep an open mind and is wise enough to know BS when they read it There is some truly valuable and beautifully written materials contained in this book

    I strongly believe that Silver Ravenwolf has doneharm to Paganism than any other author Half the facts she writes about in her books are completely wrong She doesn t even know the proper dates of Pagan Holidays a lot of the time She presents puritanical views towards sex in her books, she suggests that teen readers lie to their parents about what they re practicing, and she acts as though Paganism is fluffy and pure and that anything you want is at your fingertips if you just cast a spe I strongly believe that Silver Ravenwolf has doneharm to Paganism than any other author Half the facts she writes about in her books are completely wrong She doesn t even know the proper dates of Pagan Holidays a lot of the time She presents puritanical views towards sex in her books, she suggests that teen readers lie to their parents about what they re practicing, and she acts as though Paganism is fluffy and pure and that anything you want is at your fingertips if you just cast a spell A hint If any author proposes love spells, they are not to be trusted PLEASE do your research and read some books from authors who actually have a clue what they re talking about If I could give this a 0 5 I would
