As a Head High Priest of a community and school of Witchcraft, I'm always interested in books such as The Witch's Eight Paths of Power: A Complete Course in Magick and Witchcraft. It's always great to compare notes and see what other schools of thought are in the area of the Craft.

I could tell there was going be a lot here to like right away, even by looking through the table of contents. A lot of the principles that were nearest and dearest to me were here, from the basic to the more advanced,

This is the first new pagan/new age book that I have read in a long time. I have been re-reading a lot of classic books that deal with witchcraft and ritual but newer books like this have lost their appeal to me. I have felt like I was reading the same thing over and over again. This book will remain on my bookshelf for me to use again and again. Although it covers very basic things (book of shadows, ritual tools, visualization, etc) it does it in a way that is fresh. I would recommend this book ...more

It is a fleshy outline of Witchcraft techniques, and other than an extremely basic review, I would not find it handy to ever refer to again.

She credits Isaac Bonewits with the Hermetic Principles. She "encourages" intoxicants, scourging and the actual Great Rite as what "traditional witches do." She considers the Goddess Kali as a mere principle that eats negativity.

But mostly she shows the tricks and tips of witchcraft devoid of spirituality. I know many folks manipulate energy with no connect

Very in depth book on traditional Wicca practices. There is a lot of information and a lot of practical application and exercises provided. FYI for the eclectics out there, this book is rooted heavily on traditional Wicca, but it's worth the read. The writing style is a little stiff but if you're able to get past that, you'll see that there is some great information in this book, from beginners to advanced. Would recommend.
