This book should have been titled WITCHCRAFT AND SATANISM. Though it touched on the holiday of Halloween at the beginning, it spent the rest of the book talking about satanism and witchcraft (or wiccan religion). The book itself jumped around too much. It seemed like the author was in a hurry to get the information out and really didn't line up their thoughts in any order. They would talk about the evils of witchcraft, then go off on some other tangent, then come back to the evils of witchcraft. I finally got the point of what the authors were trying to get across after 2/3 of the book. I did like the origins of the different Halloween icons (Jack O'Lantern, bobbing for apples etc). This is a very pro-Christian/anti-wiccan book. I don't know what disturbs me more, some of the things that the author talked about in here regarding satanism or the fact that there are people out there actually doing those things.
