I have read many books and been seeking the Raw Truth... To my surprise the author does quote FACTS and give you raw truth that is supported by facts.

In my many years of studing and practice of Witchcraft I know that pompous titles and dramatic claims don't count. This is a book that makes a lot of misconceptions and fills a lot of gaps only by the will of author. In resume, it is only and solely a piece of advertise of the school of the author.

The author states in the Forward what he hoped to accomplish with his book, and delivers it clearly. His topics are supported by historical documents and references. If you have tried the rituals, read countless books, spent alot of money on useless tools, without any satisfying results, then perhaps all that you thought you knew is incorrect. As a primer and an introduction to the authentic tradition, this book is an excellent choice. It emphasizes that the witch is within you, in how you approach life, not in the garb or ceremony. The website appears to offer additional information and discussion. I'll be frequenting that site to be sure.

I have read many books and been seeking the Raw Truth... To my surprise the author does quote FACTS and give you raw truth that is supported by facts. For those seeking Truth, this book alone gives you that. If you want someone to challenge you with Facts I urge you to read this book. First ask yourself if you can handle RAW TRUTH, then send your respectable comments to the author and give him the chance to provide the facts before passing judgment. We as ppl can be very cold, evil and judgmental without getting the facts first. Nothing in this book is offensive unless you have a small mind and only believe your way is the RIGHT way. The simple facts are written and should be appreciated not criticized. To the author "Nicely done" I hope to read more of your writing in the future.

This thin book presents very little substance, and is hopefully not representative of the authors full grasp of the subject. It begins with complaints about Wicca and Wiccans and the remnants of Christian influence that the author feels were dragged into Wicca by those who converted over from Christianity. The author ignores centuries of pre-Christian writings about Witchcraft and claims that Witches and Witchcraft first arose in the Christian period as a protest to its tenets. He is rather sketchy about who or what these protestors were before feeling the need to revolt or what they believed in that was so contrary to Christian tenets that it merited turning to the Devil as an ally. The author also states that Witches were never Pagan or religious, and in doing so ignores a large body of ancient writings that portray Witches such as Medea as a priestess of Hecate, and the Witch Canidia calling upon the goddess Diana.

The book goes on to tie Witchcraft with the Devil of Judaic-Christian notoriety (as though nothing in Europe existed outside of Middle Eastern concepts before the influence of this region found its way into European lands). However, no being matching the Devil was indigenous to old European culture before contact with the Hebrews and the Arab lands. Therefore the author seems to want us to believe that Europe had no preexisting magical practitioners of its own, which is simply untrue of European peoples.

The rest of the book is far too brief on what "Authentic Witchcraft" is and what its practices are. If this is someone's first introduction to the topic, she or he will come away with very little understanding or useful information. On the other hand, if you're looking for questionable opinions like those all too common on Internet forums, then you're sure to find familiar ground in this book.

This book is very well written and explains the topics covered quite sufficiently. A few minor publishing issues in the form of spelling and grammatical errors, but nothing that distracts from the content of the book. The book is not overly long, but every topic is covered with brevity. This is not a book for the reader who needs every little thing spelled out for them down to the minutest detail. If you cannot understand the issues as they are covered and explained in the book then this spiritual path is probably not for you.

But for those who do understand, you will soon learn that this book is also one that can be read over and over again and each time will have new insight. It truly is a handbook for those on a specific spiritual path, and as you grow and develop you can still reference the material in this book.

This is also not a book for those who already have all of the answers and need to learn nothing more about any spiritual issues. One must have an open mind and the desire to learn to fully appreciate this book. The information in this book may challenge your beliefs and some ideas may be uncomfortable, but for those who are not afraid of hearing the truth the journey this book takes you on is well worth the initial discomfort.

I really like how this book does not present uncorroborated information. Some popular books on witchcraft offer you completely fabricated ideas that have been run through the paper shredder and pasted back together again, but this book is factual and historically accurate. I know that I was looking for a writer who really got back to the roots of witchcraft, and Grayson Magnus is that writer.
