    BOO Silver s book is like Taco Bell for the soul i.e not good for you and gives you gas.I bought this for my daughter, based solely on the HUGE recommendations amongst the community I found it shallow and just awful as did my daughter, who knewabout Wicca from us and participating in ritual on occasion than this book could ever reveal.This is just a mass market fluff approach to Wicca, and really seems to have no faith in teens ability to grasp higher concepts of Neopagan Philosop BOO Silver s book is like Taco Bell for the soul i.e not good for you and gives you gas.I bought this for my daughter, based solely on the HUGE recommendations amongst the community I found it shallow and just awful as did my daughter, who knewabout Wicca from us and participating in ritual on occasion than this book could ever reveal.This is just a mass market fluff approach to Wicca, and really seems to have no faith in teens ability to grasp higher concepts of Neopagan Philosophies Not recommended at all, there are plenty of actual beginner Wicca books that treat teens as normal humans and don t feel the need to translate everything into kewl speak to be understood Silver is NOT kewl so her efforts come across as someone TRYING to be kewl and failing miserably No actual Teen Witch I have known has ANY respect for this book, which is generally laughed at in pagan circles with knowing sighs

    This book, like almost all Llewellyn Press books, is total crap It s a dumbed down version of a religion that Allister Crowley thought up over the course of a very drunk weekend If you want to read something about real pagan religions, take an anthropology course If you want to be a magician, turn towards Peter Caroll and Robert Anton Wilson.If you want to piss off your parents, start getting good grades.

    Let first start off my saying, I will use the word patronized a lot in this review So be prepared This is my first Silver Ravenwolf book, and although she s not seen in the best light, I decided to give it a try because my opinion may not coincide with others however, I pretty much agree with most reviews on here Ravenwolf is an awfully patronizing person whose knowledge on the subject and even knowledge on what teens like is pretty atrocious I don t have a huge breadth of knowledge on Wi Let first start off my saying, I will use the word patronized a lot in this review So be prepared This is my first Silver Ravenwolf book, and although she s not seen in the best light, I decided to give it a try because my opinion may not coincide with others however, I pretty much agree with most reviews on here Ravenwolf is an awfully patronizing person whose knowledge on the subject and even knowledge on what teens like is pretty atrocious I don t have a huge breadth of knowledge on Wicca and Witchcraft, but seriously, bro Even I could sniff out this shit She speaks to teens like they are just newly born dumbing down information and prodviding Teen Speak where she thought necessary I m pretty sure teens are intelligent indiviudals who don t need to have something dumbed down to them Just sayin Also, I must talk about her hilarious choice of spells Oh boy, it made me laugh She called the chapter spells just for you and the majority of them are love and beauty spells Yes, because ALL teen are superficial and only want love and beauty Sure, it s pretty much the necessity of most teens, but if she provided somethingthat made teens seem less needy and her less patronizing, then I wouldn t be hating on homegirl so much.Throughout the book she talks about what REAL witches do and don t do I love her definition of real witches, because, you know, she knows everything.Anyways, if you want to read this book, do it but prepare to be underwhelmed and maybe even a little offended

    There are soooo many reason this one is on my Bad Book list.1 It s not Wicca Silver herself is no Wiccan so the idea that she can write about Wicca which is an othropraxic religion that requires initiation to experience know the Mysteries is laughable.2 Advising kids the lie to their parents No Just no If a kid is in a situation where studying paganism would get them into trouble kicked out of the house or worse then put DOWN the books, put away your athame and work on your grades at s There are soooo many reason this one is on my Bad Book list.1 It s not Wicca Silver herself is no Wiccan so the idea that she can write about Wicca which is an othropraxic religion that requires initiation to experience know the Mysteries is laughable.2 Advising kids the lie to their parents No Just no If a kid is in a situation where studying paganism would get them into trouble kicked out of the house or worse then put DOWN the books, put away your athame and work on your grades at school Get a job Then, when you have moved out of your parents house and are paying your own way, the gods will still be there and you can study practice to your little heart s content.3 The spells Thankfully she doesn t go into how to POWER the spells she hands out in her book So if people try it, it s likely to fizzle But the kind of spells she hands out Calling on frost giants Are you serious This is a prime example of why cherry picking aspects of cultures you know nothing about is a BAD IDEA The jotan giants don t like humans If called they would cheerfully squish you And she s telling emotionally distraught teens that frost giants are their friends and will help them Give me a break There isso muchthat could be said about this book and why it should be avoided, but those three are the biggest issues in my mind.If you read this book, do so with a HUGE grain of salt and a bottle of aspirin on hand

    This book has nothing to do with REAL Paganism or Wicca What it is is a bunch of psycho babble from a woman who repeatedly refers to HERSELF as an insanely famous and well thought of Pagan authority snort She writes this book both to appeal to teenagers, but also to convince their Christian parents that Paganism and Christianity aren t that different, the the point of referring to the Gods and Goddesses or Spirits as just God , singular.It s a HORRIBLE book that no one should take factual This book has nothing to do with REAL Paganism or Wicca What it is is a bunch of psycho babble from a woman who repeatedly refers to HERSELF as an insanely famous and well thought of Pagan authority snort She writes this book both to appeal to teenagers, but also to convince their Christian parents that Paganism and Christianity aren t that different, the the point of referring to the Gods and Goddesses or Spirits as just God , singular.It s a HORRIBLE book that no one should take factually from an author with a superiority complex

    Researching Witchcraft in an effort to grow as a Fantasy writer This book had a simple overview and lots of spells but not much about what magic is , and come to think of it, very little about what Witches actually worship.20 pages in I started feeling weird about the author s writing style She definitely seemed to have an agenda, and contradicted herself a few times This website pretty much summarizes what s wrong with this book Researching Witchcraft in an effort to grow as a Fantasy writer This book had a simple overview and lots of spells but not much about what magic is , and come to think of it, very little about what Witches actually worship.20 pages in I started feeling weird about the author s writing style She definitely seemed to have an agenda, and contradicted herself a few times This website pretty much summarizes what s wrong with this book

    This book can be the worst thing you could taint your mind with when it comes to introducing yourself to Wicca or Paganism as a whole Not only does Ravenwolf encourage teenagers to lie to their parents in this book, but she also uses FALSE historical facts to fuel her anti Christian agenda.I wouldn t recommend this book for my cat, let alone someone searching out a new faith system.

    A bit fluffy, but not horrible like some people say.The thing so many people don t seem to get about this is that it s mostly geared toward younger readers who are coming into their curiosity about wicca from christianity, and that a lot of the other beginner books have things in them that they naturally assume everyone would know, but someone coming from a fundamentalist christian type home might never have even heard of, or been told about It fills that niche nicely.Do I recommend that this A bit fluffy, but not horrible like some people say.The thing so many people don t seem to get about this is that it s mostly geared toward younger readers who are coming into their curiosity about wicca from christianity, and that a lot of the other beginner books have things in them that they naturally assume everyone would know, but someone coming from a fundamentalist christian type home might never have even heard of, or been told about It fills that niche nicely.Do I recommend that this be the ONLY book a younger person from that type of situation, or otherwise, read while learning about wicca or paganism Of course not That would be incredibly silly There are very few if any subjects in this world that you only need one book to learn all about it Even christians usethan just the bible for study And no, I m not saying this is a bible for wicca If anything, it slike those study guides christians use to understand the bible better, by putting key items into language they can better understand So yeah, it s a bit fluffy, but it helps those who have been sheltered from anything but fundamentalism some of the basics they might otherwise be struggling to understand.If you re coming from a home where you were raised wiccan or pagan, or otherwise can openly ask someone for help understanding some of the stuff in other books, without fear of reprisal, then yeah, give this a miss But for those who are the target audience I described, go for it Get this, and another book, like True Magick, by Amber K, or one of the other beginner books Teen Witch will get you through some of the concepts in the other one that may not make sense to you.Oh, and regarding some of the major complaints I ve seen 1 For those complaining about the way it represents christians yes, I ve known good christians, who are tolerant, loving, etc But I ve also known the type who would mistreat someone for practicing, or being different in any way they don t approve of It s not uncommon, and they shouldn t be lied to, and told it is.2 For those saying it s too simple it s insulting it talks down to the audience then obviously, it s not the book for you.3 For those raising objections about her saying what a real witch is and does, and how she cuts out several other paths religions valid, to some degree But again, this book likely isn t for you She s trying to explain the falsehoods behind some of the boogeyman theories that fundamentalists toss around about witchcraft and paganism, and I think she does that nicely and really, if you re a scared kid questioning your faith for the first time, and wondering about what the right religion is for you, the things she covers are reassuring

    I would freely admit that when I was a teenager, this book helped reassure me I do not come from a particularly occult friendly family, so it was nice to be told by a respectable adult that I wasn t a bad person for what I believed I would definitely hand this book over to any teenager who is going through something similar to that Most of the book is about getting over that hump being able to accept yourself for who you are, and as a teenager, that s a pretty big hump.Adults, especially th I would freely admit that when I was a teenager, this book helped reassure me I do not come from a particularly occult friendly family, so it was nice to be told by a respectable adult that I wasn t a bad person for what I believed I would definitely hand this book over to any teenager who is going through something similar to that Most of the book is about getting over that hump being able to accept yourself for who you are, and as a teenager, that s a pretty big hump.Adults, especially those who know even the tiniest bit about Wicca, will not benefit from this book, likely not at all It is the most basic information you can get on the subject, presented in a way that is very friendly and easy to understand The author uses examples from her life, and even includes some information for parents Is it a thorough manual for becoming Wiccan No Is it a timeless grimoire No The spells are very plain, generally easy to do, no tons of memorization, and geared toward teenagers There s nothing wrong with that Some authors can be very dry, and very few authors write for kids.For a young person who has had no prior exposure to Wicca and witchcraft, it is perfect and recommended, but if you intend on giving it to someone, make sure you follow up with them and give them supplemental information and books
