This is a great book for anyone who is interested in finding out what Witchcraft is really all about- even if you are not interested in practicing.
There are dozens of books out there that want to inform you about the Craft because they are convinced they need to "save" you and your children from this "evil" religion. Those books don't help anyone- they just spread propoganda.
I fully believe that anyone wanting to be able to "pipe in" about Wicca/Witchcraft in a religious conversation should be educated- and Cunningham's book is the most basic and respected one out there today. He's easy to read and easy to relate to.
Discover what Witchcraft Really Is! The practice of Wiccan magic is not evil, it is not supernatural. It is the creatoin of positive personal and global change through the natural energies found in each of us and in the Earth and all aspects of the Divinity.

The cover of my copy is more recent than that shown. This is one of many books that answer many, many questions about the practice of witchcraft and the religion of Wicca. Scott Cunningham is indisputably the most read author on the subject and I, tired of all of the lies and misconceptions about my religion, have promised to buy this book where-ever I find it and share it with anyone interested in knowing the truth. You're welcome to request this book, even if you believe the lies - that witchcraft is evil, Satan-worship, or that "we" are trying to "take" your children. Ha! I have enough trouble with my own thank you very much! Request this book - I ask only that you read it and then pass it along. Bright blessings on you and yours always! AH
This is a wonderful book. It clears up many misconceptions about Witchcraft and Witches. If you practice The Craft, this is a wonderful book to share with friends and family so that they can try to understand your chosen path. Scott Cunningham was a wonderful writer and all of his books are worth a look.
Very informative book, even though it was written along time ago it is still very accurate. A very good book for anybody wanting to know more about Wicca and Magic even if they are not seeking the path for themselves. Cunningham give nice over view and explains many aspects in his usual easy to read manner.
