Review by Daven
Generally when writing a review of a book, I work really hard not to look at other’s reviews of the same book. I do this so that I don’t “contaminate” my opinion of a book with someone else’s opinion. But while I was looking up publication information on Amazon to place in this review, I glanced at the “average customer review” and was shocked to see that it was fairly low.
I say “shocked” because this is one of the best books on Witchcraft I have seen in recent years. It is by far the best I have seen yet this year. I guess this is one of those books that you either love, hate, or love to hate. I know that many of the books that push the edge of religious practice get this label, and this one is no exception.
