This book? Wow! is a fascinating revelation of Craft knowledge as taught by the Feri Tradition of Victor and Cora Anderson. Don't look for chapters, there are none; read the book from beginning to end like it should be done. Don't worry, there's enough between there and there, to keep you busy. And won't you be surprised! Yep, it's a little book, serenely powerful in its inspiration. Hint: read The Heart Of The Initiate by Victor and Cora Anderson; the two books, do, go together. Now you know, I told you so.

While the shelves of bookstores all across the West are overflowing with countless works on Wicca, few has been said of Feri, so this book has incredible importance for the simple reason of being the only work by Cora Anderson, one of the founders of the tradition, and one of only a handful on Feri at all. Cora rights with naked honesty, and without apology. She does not explain her feelings or beliefs; they are simply stated, and the reader has to do the processing on their own.

So, many areas that I want to know more about are flown right over, like the mysticism of bees, the true meaning of "Lucifer", or how Jesus is a sacrificial king that witches should honor. Frankly, Feri has always guarded its teachings, so don't read his work if you think it will reveal those secrets. It will just give you glimpses behind the curtain.

I give the work four stars for its historical value, and for its importance to me personally, as I walk the Feri path. However, I admit its not for everyone, and perhaps should only be read by those who are looking into the mysteries of Feri.

This book reveals itself in layers. The more you know about the Feri Tradition, the more it reveals. It is a book that bears re-reading as your practice deepens.

At $6-$7 for an electronic copy of 80 pages, this work is too expensive for the general reader or the general witchcraft reader/practitioner. It was fairly general in its information about the Feri tradition although, as some other reviewers point out, it may be that such information would be more pregnant with meaning for Feri initiates. If the latter is true, it bolsters my point that this is not a book for the general witchcraft reader/practitioner. If it is pregnant with meaning for Feri initiates, then I advise only Feri initiates to invest in the book at its present price. Otherwise, an interested reader might borrow a copy from a friend, ask a local public library to interlibrary loan it, or search used book websites for a reduced price. I purchased a Kindle copy and returned it the very same day when I realized that either (a) it did not contain much substantive information or (b) I was not a member of the target audience.

Cora Anderson is straight and direct regarding the Feri Tradition in Paganism. She also has an anti-christian bias and minced no words in saying so. Overall though, you get a picture of the whole Feri Tradition and I highly recommend this short book.

I've read this little book several times, and each time I've come away from it with a little something more. In the space of time between my first reading and my most recent read a couple of days ago, I've found many little gems of wisdom, humor, and magic hiding in the text, and each time I wonder: why I hadn't seen that particular bit before? After all, it's not as though there's much room in the book for things to hide! I always wonder if the text changes when I'm not looking at it...

But of course, the book itself isn't changing. It's that I've changed, and my capacity to understand it has likewise changed. Cora Anderson's little essay about the Feri tradition, rambling and unfocused as it is, packs a terrific amount of information into a tiny package, and phrases it in such a way that most of it only makes sense once you, the reader, are ready to understand it. That may sound odd, but it's true.

As such, while I wouldn't say this is a "beginner's book" by any stretch of the imagination, I think it's essential reading for anyone seriously studying the Feri tradition, or anyone who wants to read the unvarnished thoughts of a genuine elder of the Craft.

Overall, a very enlightening book, if only a small glimpse and a real chance to get some decent, "real" Craft information. Most books on any kind of Craft are 101 type of books; this, while a brief look into Feri, is not a 101 book.
