Silver was my first book as well, and she has some decent info, however her opinion shows through too much in her writing and as such it cannot always be perceived as fact. It does however give one food for thought and ideas, and it's nice to have one of the larger books around for reference sometimes.

In my opinion, you should gather as many viewpoints on a situation as you can before entering it, so Silver's viewpoint, while incorrect to many, is as valid as anyone's as far as her right to have and to disclose it. There are also undoubtedly people who will share her views, and as such it's nice to take it into consideration, if not in your magickal works than just into a general life context.

I have to agree that Scott Cunningham is good for beginners. His style is easy to follow and he's fairly truthful about all subjects.

I've never read anything from Cunningham.
My first book was by R. Buckland and it really scared me off, he writes very dryly and it's his way or the highway in his POV, at least it seems so.
I personally like Christopher Penczak, he has a very nice writing style and once you learn the basics his books can help you learn at a slow, steady pace. He recommends his books be read and practiced over the course of a year, which is a very good plan if you stick with it. Studying and practicing slowly and steadily will let you retain the information more, and really grow intellectually.

it depends...your taking other peoples info and relating it to her...you have to look at the type of magick she does...its different from traditional wicca although i do think she needs to adress that...

btw, i wasnt trying to say that the history was right...but alot of her techniques work very well

I've read to stir a magick couldron by her only becuase I found it at a local flee market where I by insence. Anyway she seemed too bright and slightly out of her mind. Buckland is more my type. I find scot cummingham a bit dry. Thats just my two cents

Disgusting person. Book isn't too bad but her history is unforgivable.

I like Penzack, I think thats how you spell it anyway. Ravenwolf is in my opinion a little crazy. Misleading newbs into thinking that once you become a witch, everything will be become bright and shiny and that they wont have to deal with the drama of the "real" world.

these are some more sites, threads, and discussions that show just how disgusting SRW's boooks are.

if you are interested in wicca, please take the time to look at the links I have given, you will learn alot about what is and isnt wiccan, the isn't is almost always closely tied to mama Silver.
