This isn't my favourite book on the topic of witchcraft, though I still keep it on my bookshelf as it can be handy reference for Sabbats and other pagan topics. Perhaps the book would be more suited to those who identify as Wicca and/or do coven work. ( )

Reasonable resource on rituals, spellwork, Sabbats, and related topics from well-known Alexandrian initiates. Incomplete, as these kinds of books tend to be, but useful. It's geared toward coven work, though solitary practitioners may find it useful too. Better than most comparable titles on the market, though admittedly that's not saying much. ( )

This is pretty much the most complete published work on Alexandrian Wicca around (or at least of which I am aware). Unfortunately, that doesn't make it good, considering the fact that the information is extremely incomplete, and the lore is extremely flawed. ( )
