Wicked and Wonderful

I absolutely love this book. I picked it up off the bargain table at a bookstore (how could I NOT with that title?!) and after flipping through it, I put the How-to-keep-from-snapping-and-beating-those-who-annoy-to-a-pulp self-help type book that I was also carrying down. So I originally purchased it as a fun, light read, and it's excellent for that, but I did find myself starting to relate to the witchier parts. With my new found interest, I've been seeking out similar books, and it seems to me that this one is the best (of the few I've purchased so far) at giving you the tools that you need to run with witchery yourself, rather than step by step rituals or spells (although those are there, too).

Positively "Charming"

This book is a wonderful "starter" book for someone who wants to try some simple spells and charms. It also gives you good advice on how to conduct yourself as a witch. It is the first book on witchcraft that I ever purchased and I was very surprised and pleased with it. For example, the author gives you simple substitutions for items used in spells that you can find around the house, even in your "junk drawer". So, you don't have to spend a lot of time and/or money looking for for "ingredients". Delightful, informative and FUN!

Clever and FUN!

This book isn't just for witches, anyone can learn that if they harm someone, they're bound to get it back! Its really a sweet approach to living with little lessons about how to treat others, to use your mind and rationalize the best route to go when dealing with difficulties and so on! The book is positive and upbeat, modern and informational too! Enjoy learning new spells or just gain insight. I would reccommend this book to someone who is wanting to begin practicing or to family and friends of witches everywhere for a better understanding of how human witchcraft really is.

Fantastic and Needed

Reader friendly ideas, readily accessible components (did that other reviewer ever shop?), clever humor, and old fashioned common sense combine in this book to give you all the best tools for handling those inevitable "bad days"Telesco has gone where few writers dare to tread by handling the concept of using magick as a warrior or a weapon in a direct, adult manner. This book doesn't advocate violence, but it doesn't promote the "poor me" syndrom eitehr.Bravo!

A Little Wickedness is a Good Thing

I have long been a fan of the no-nonsense writing style of Patricia Telesco. The title is what caught my eye, but the author is what made me buy it. I was NOT disappointed.This book is a blend of practical approaches to modern witchery and older folk magic. She suggests easily-obtainable substitutes for the "budget-minded witch" and invites you to adapt spells to suit your individual purpose. The title may be somewhat misleading to someone who doesn't bother to delve beyond it. It's not about curses and hexing, but about taking the phrase "wicked witch" and OWNING it; being proactive in your life, instead of letting things just happen to you. It's about turning an epithet into a badge of honor. (Women who take pride in being called a b**** will know exactly what I mean!)I think this is a fabulous and very usable book, that belongs in every wicked witch's knapsack.
