From Publishers Weekly
Mixing modern technology with witchcraft, Sirona Knight (A Witch Like Me) and Patricia Telesco (An Enchanted Life) offer Cyber Spellbook: Magick in the Virtual World. Although thousands of Wicca enthusiasts use the Web daily for research and to meet people, they may not realize their computer's witchcraft-related properties. For example, a keyboard can represent "creative flow," with the "delete" key an instrument for banishing and the "shift" key helping one shift between the ordinary and magickal worlds. The authors explain ways to integrate technology (from cell phones to lawn mowers) with spells, making this a truly up-to-date Wicca resource.

While I applaud the idea of Innovation, this book just felt too tongue-in-cheek for my tastes. There's a lot of correspondaces that are rehashed from other books, trying to say which Deities translate to modern times and what a more modern approach to them would be, making this come off as another Wicca 101 with an attempt at a Technological Flair or Twist.
And some of the ideas for modern tools and appliances as magickal tools or correspondances for use in magic is just way too hokey.
Did I get anything out of it? I got a few vague ideas and whole lot, not for me. Perhaps with some strong scrutiny, I'd use some of the spells.
The book reads like the joke is on the reader who takes the whole thing seriously. Like the authors wanted to get a book out there to fill a niche, but didn't take the sincere time to do it properly.
