Given the lurid connotations Neo-Paganism has acquired... Drawing Down the Moon is a healthy corrective. (The New York Times Book Review)

I appreciated Adler's commentary in the prologue as it includes valuable and informative information about how she came to write the book and what she has learned since it was published. The book itself is a comfortable blend of academic and anecdotal writing that includes some of the most intensive firsthand research into contemporary Pagans from our own perspectives. Adler comes off as highly credible and her insights are a welcome relief from other similar books that come across as too academic. The writing is very humanist, easy to follow and very citable as Adler is considered an authority on the Pagan community (mostly in part to this book).
This is a very valuable product to have in my Kindle collection.
(7/28/14) Margot Adler's work has been tremendously influential and helpful to the Pagan community and she will be sorely missed.
