This book is a hot mess. Let me compare it to a cookbook: I seriously doubt the compiler tested all of these "recipes" (spells). The sources are rarely primary or even secondary. Any practitioner familiar with the many types and paths she has riffed would not need this book. And in the hands of a novice it would be demoralising at best, and dangerous at the worst. It's a beautiful book- very attractive cover, nice paper and font, well designed. But it's ultimately useless for a true witch (or Ceremonial Magician, or Feng Shui practitioner, etc).

To be sure, this book has a lot of nonsense that is enjoyable to read for amusement and historical value. Tucked in between a lot of classic folklore, though, are a few interesting and currently useful items.
