Mr. Paddon gives the reader a feast of information for any aspiring cunning wo-/man.
My only problem, and the only reason I didn't dish out a full five stars, is that his writing seems to
get a little lazy near the end. Perhaps it's just the impression I got, but even the grammar gets a little
shaky and it seems like the last few pages were rushed.
Overall, though, I say again--it's an excellent book and must-have for all interested in Trad Craft.
Would I recommend this book? This book wasn't for me. I understand Paddon was making comparisons to highlight differences between traditional craft and Wicca but I would have preferred more information on cunningfolk magick, ritual, formulae etc and less on Neopagan Wicca.
I would recommend it to those who seek very basic, very general information on the subject.
Paddon does well explaining the practical use of manipulation and mind workings to achieve things explained away as Magick. Understand I know of magic and Sorcery and wizardry and religion; however, I also understand there is a very real difference in them all. Also with the new-age (read NON OLD WAYS) FAD ( read money maker) authors, it is hard to discern facts from someone else's reality (read down THEIR rabbit hole). Maybe Paddon is in my same rabbit hole; HOWEVER, I have committed to the craft (read one year and a day study) and have spent THOUSANDS (read $2500 +) on so-called magick books over my 12 year and counting studies. Also I do spend about 6 - 10 hours per week in study More during the moon. I must say this is as close to now as it gets.
