One of the first introductory Wicca books that I read as a teenager.
It consists mostly of the usual tables of correspondence found in reference books, concerning colors, incense, herbs and the like. Gerina walks the reader very briefly through the basics of Wiccan practice, giving an overview of altars, tools, handfastings, Esbats and the Sabbats. She includes a few bare bones rituals to accompany the celebrations and holy days, but neglects to provide any information about why the rituals are

Absolutely LOVE this book!

Great for beginners of the Craft and for seasoned and experienced practitioners as well.

Simple and uncomplicated...I adore it!

If you've been on the fence about this book, get it!

I would recommend this book for beginners. If you know nothing about Wicca this book would give you some of the basics. If you are already more experienced and/or have read other “Wicca 101” books you’re probably not gonna learn much from this. Overall as an introduction for Wicca it was pretty good but nothing outstanding.

This was the first book I have read on Wicca many years ago in German. I just recently acquired it again in English. It does have a special place in my heart or else it would probably only get 3 stars. It definitely is not a beginners book. The information is just too minimal. Not enough is explained further and all the correspondence lists won't help a newcomer if there is no info what to do with them.

As another reviewer said: Wicca 101. The most interesting things in this book are the ESAU square and the recipe for the cake. I love that cake.
This was the second book on Wicca I read, and it confused the hell out of me. Good thing I had Phyllis Currott's Witch-Crafting on hand...
What ticks me off the most about this book is the lack of information on ritual. How can you write a beginning book in witchcraft and not have any information about rituals? Argh!

A fairly shallow take on the "wicca 101" text. There really isn't anything to glean from this book, especially if you've read more than any 2 other books on the subject. It feels like another hurriedly slapped together money making vehicle. Makes me wish I'd thrown something like this together before the market was flooded.

Not a bad break down - clearly for the beginner and the layman who is seeking to learn a lot at once. I would have loved to see more breakdowns, but she gave excellent cautions and wonderful lists for quick reference. :)

Recommends it for: People interested in Wicca or the beginner Witch
This was very informative and easy on the eyes. This is one of the books that turned me on to the craft. It's perfect for beginners or the curious reader.

Saw this pretty little book at a discount book shop and got it right away once I noticed the huge lists for quick reference. A simple read of fundamentals.
