5.0 out of 5 stars An occult classic, December 11, 2005
Every student of occult sciences should have this volume of work in their occult library. It is one of the "bread and butter" grimoires of Western Occultism. A lot of occult philosophical teachings that developed after the age of Agrippa have their foundation in H.C. Agrippa's writings. I am always amazed Agrippa developed such a large and vast body of magickal knowledge as well as knowledge of the natural world. His writings are not easily understood in some chapters but this book is not meant to be read "novel style". It is an occult textbook and one must read it as such.

I would not recommend this book as an introduction to occult science. For someone who only wishes to learn an overall view of occultism this book would be overwhelming if not actually boring. But for the student who is ready to understand some of the foundations of what shaped the Western Mystery tradition as well as develop skills of ceremonial magick this book is a must read. It is a large body of writing and one must be committed to such a reading undertaking but for those who do so you will be rewarded with an insight and grasp of occultism few people will ever take the time to develop. And your occult knowledge will increase each time you study from this book. I have had this book for three years and Agrippa's writings still have much to teach me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should be titled A Wiccan Like Me, October 24, 2004
If this book was titled "A Wiccan Like Me" it would have made more sense. Overall it was a good book to promote Wiccan pride and a nice read concerning the lives of Wiccan Witches. And I did get some nice insight into some of the more popular Wiccan authors. But if you are a Witch but not a Wiccan you may be disappointed at the heavy amount of "Why I became Wiccan" segments in the different chapters. Yet, each person's story was a wonderful read and no matter what religion you follow, if you are a Witch you can identify with the growth challenges the Wiccan Witches have endured. But for the record, not all Witches are Wiccan.
