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,

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.

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.
