This book is so full of bad facts, made-up numbers, and pure speculation that it makes me ill. A book like this could seriously fill a young seeker's mind with such tripe that they would never be taken seriously by a more advanced practitioner. The author even uses other books that have been torn apart by the more academic of the pagan scholars as "recommended reading".
This should be called Wicca Ways ! It's not about paganism but about Wicca and they are two very different things. Wicca is a new religion only around since the 60's , Paganism cover many aspects of life and many different beliefs and is older then rescored time. This is a ok book for free / swap if you very new to Wicca. But some of the info is not correct so don't put much worth in it's content.
