First of all, I'm thankful that there is a book which defines witchcraft in a very meta-physical way, getting rid of the hocus-pocus and mumbo-jumbo stuff, at least, giving a good shot at presenting the public with white witchcraft. Another thing impressive is that it does not deny the existence of evil spirits, unlike many Wiccans and Pagans who refused to believe so. Therefore, with this two strong points, Mr. Maning has written a very profound introductory guide to white witchcraft. I'm really thrilled the first time I got into the book, because it covers from everyday magic to protection guide, it never denies and its application, I can say is quite universal. I'm glad to know that Mr. Maning has such insight into witchcraft, which has turned out to be the craft of the ignorants these days if you as me. Peoplem, epspecially teenagers are jumping on the bandwagon, heading only to trouble themselves with true responsibilities, unable to be coped. White witchcraft is a healthy process and it helps progresses one's life, many testimonies where given in the book and all I can say is that if it works, why not? Another great thing about the book is the simplicity of the topic, not going in too deep, we can understand the mechanism of witchcraft. We can understand its usefulness and its importance in our every day lives. Supposedly if you're a hippy and just become a Wiccan for the fun of it, then you will never really understand the importance of the book. This is a great book to be shared. However, I do not agree with Mr. Manings manipulation of the Goddesses. He treats them as if they are energy mining pools or spiritual slaves, at least in hs very scietific discussion to please the atheists.
