I haven't read all of this book, but my daughter did.  She's not an expert in Wicca, by any means, but is a critical reader.  She liked it.  IIRC, she felt the author's tone was appropriate (i.e., she doesn't talk down to readers) and the info was useful.

But, as I said, she's not any like an expert in Wicca so can't vouch for the accuracy of the book.

FWIW...

IIRC, this book gets recommended here quite a bit.

<nod> It's one that Jenett mentions often, with strong approval - that cuts a lot of ice with me.

There are, I should say, things I disagree with in it (and like a lot of other books that have been out a while, there are places where it's starting to seem a little dated.)

But one thing I love about it is the quotes from people from various perspectives about what they do and why. (These people have a brief bio at the beginning of the book, so you can see where they're coming from.) And I also think it does a generally good job of explaining basics in a way that doesn't require a massive amount of relearning as someone goes further/deeper/into a more specific practice, etc.
