About the author
Top reviews from other countries
Contrary to its title there is little practical information in it behind the very beginning level.
There is no real and pratical information on the impact of city life on magic, nothing on the means of detecting other urban magician work.
This book is mainly about the justification of making magic practices in urban context despite the agrarian and rural tradition of wiccan magic.
It's unfortunate that there is no discussion of politic, economic or social urban subjects in the contexte of praticing magic.
So a good book for entry level .
