This book is an interesting read, and a great introduction to Solitary Wiccan practice. ( )
  Velmeran | Jan 26, 2019 |
Book of hippy dippy stuff for spiritually lost people desperate for a non-traditional religious identity in lieu of individual self-esteem. But hey, at least they aren't knocking on my door trying to push this stuff on me or telling me not to drink my beer....at least not yet. So good on ya wiccans! ( )

While the references are dated, the information about Wicca itself is still excellent. This is an outstanding primer for anyone interested in Earth-based spiritual practice. ( )
  hopeevey | May 20, 2018 |
This is an excellent, no-nonsense guide to Wicca for anyone interested in finding out more about it or wanting to practice on their own. Includes ideas for rituals and circles as well as information on herbs and spellcraft that are practical and un-fussy. Anyone in need of a primer on Wicca could do a lot worse than to pick up this classic. ( )

Book description
Cunningham’s classic introduction to Wicca is about how to live life magically, spiritually, and wholly attuned with nature. It is a book of sense and common sense, not only about magick, but about religion and one of the most critical issues of today: how to achieve the much needed and wholesome relationship with our Earth. Cunningham presents Wicca as it is today: a gentle, Earth-oriented religion dedicated to the Goddess and God. Wicca also includes Scott Cunningham’s own Book of Shadows and updated appendices of periodicals and occult suppliers.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0875421180, Paperback)

Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner is the essential primer from one of the best known authors on Wicca. Focusing on the importance of individualism in your spiritual path, Cunningham explains the very basics of Sabbats (holy days), ceremonies, altars, and other nuts and bolts of Wicca that a solitary practitioner may have trouble finding elsewhere. While Wicca shouldn't be your sole point of reference when considering Wicca as your way of life, it is one of the best starting points. --Brian Patterson
