I wasn't sure what to expect of this book, but liked the choice of questions that the author picked for her fellow authors to answer.

There were no real glimmers of insight and when there were, there was no detail to back them up.

I was very glad that I had read most of these authors before reading this book because I would have been turned off by some if this was my first introduction to them.
The book is very short and there is nary 10 pages for each of the authors - not counting Sirona Knight. The meat of the book is only 173 pages for 14 authors. There were no real glimmers of insight and when there were, there was no detail to back them up. I wish the questions posed to the authors were a little better thought out and that the authors took time to illustrate what they do magically in their daily lives and how they combat discrimination. Everything else is just fluff - knowing glances and histories full of royalty and generals as well has statements that they are the magic. If you are going to write books to try to reach people, certainly there is more to your daily lives than that! Also, there is no insight into any of the authors' creative processes.
That said, I am glad that I read the book. Some of the author responses are definitely worthwhile and prompted me to read some people I had been leery about before. Unfortunately, the book just has a thrown together feel - It could have been a bit longer and better thought out (or perhaps the selected authors could have made their responses a little better). Generally, I think I would have been better served to buy a book by any one of these authors.
This book would be good for people who collect books by particular writers or to get a very small insight into the leaders of the pagan community. I just think it was a missed opportunity. I wish I had a chance to ask the questions!

This book is exactly what the introduction says it is--the personal stories of today's leading witches. Back when I was first learning the craft, I often had a very alone feeling because noone around me seemed to understand what I was going through. It was comforting and inspirational to read about other people who have had similar experiences. The magic of this book comes from the insights the various authors share on how to stand up for what you believe in.

What makes this a fine reading experience is the fact that the Old Religion is seen through the eyes and words of those who practice it, and who openly share how they came to be part of the Old Religion. This is a great nonfiction reference book for the home library. It is accurate, entertaining, and enjoyable reading. Five stars to all concerned! If you are interested in Witchcraft and Wicca, this is the book! Excellent.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By M.L. Benton Publisher, Echoed Voices Magazine on January 3, 2002
Format: Paperback
Sirona Knight distinguished author of many books, has brought us something new.
A Witch Like me is a beautifully well-written book of personal stories of thirteen of the most influential Witches and Authors in the pagan community.
Ever wonder how a witch lives? Or perhaps how your magickal life is different or similar to others? Ever wonder how they found their path or what life changing experience they have had? Now you can learn all about them and in doing so perhaps you can identify with something from each.
This is a soul searching wonderful read, that you will find yourself reading many times.
It could be they really are A Witch Like Me!

Format: Paperback
I read this book a few months back and did like it a lot. However, my issues with the book are the shortness and incomplete nature of some of the authors' stories, not to mention the interjections of Sirona Knight herself during some of them. I found that to be somewhat disconcerting. But, this book at least gives some perspectives on some of today's Pagan authors. The reader gets to see how they all got started, and that is very important within Paganism. Despite my reservations about the execution of the book, it is still a valuable source for someone who is studying Paganism, as Paganism is an experiential religion. The student must know of the experiences of Pagans.

This book was really helpful and changed my life when I read it. I was always curious about Wicca, and I seemed to be drawn to it for a lot of years. Knight answered a lot of the questions I had, and reading her story and the other stories really showed me that I definitely needed to follow the Wiccan path. Check this book out yourself if you are interested in Wicca.
