Okay, this book is bad

I am very fond of Edain McCoy's books but I have to admit this one is pretty bad. It seemed exactly what I wanted -- a form of Wicca based on Irish heritage, with the emphasis on simplicity and nature instead of lots of tools and strict rituals. Because it has these things, I give it 2 stars, but I can't recommend this because I am thoroughly against sloppy scholarship, church-bashing, male-bashing, and passing something off as authentic that you seem to have made up yourself. In short, I agree with all the awful reviews I've read on this site.

But, don't let this bad book keep you away from Edain McCoy without giving her another chance. I can't tell if this was her first book or not, but she's gotten a lot better (I am one of the few people that liked Celtic Myth and Magick, but I feel that her scholarship in that book was MUCH better than this one -- really! -- read my review on that if you want). I guess she learned her lesson or something -- most of her books now get really good reviews. I wouldn't recommend her if I thought she was a charlatan. I think she made a mistake with this one, but I urge you to give her another chance. Try The Sabbats, Lady of the Night, Inside a Witches' Coven -- all 4 or 5 star books.

Imaginary history

This book is ridiculous. It is full of absurd historical inaccuracies and blatantly false information regarding Paganism in Ireland. Read this book for a laugh, not a religion. It's an anthropological atrocity.
