I think this is a book anyone getting into modern pagan witchcraft/Wicca should read. It certain dispells a lot of the misinformation floating about, connecting the changing cultural ideals of the late 19th/early 20th century to the formation of groups such as the Freemasons, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) - all of which had some contribution to what later became known as Wicca.

I found this book also places a lot of common modern pagan traditions in context, particularly in respect to the Great Goddess/Horned God pairing so favored by many pagans today.
