Which Witch is Which
A Concise Guide to Wiccan and Neo-Pagan Paths and Traditions

By: Patricia Telesco

Type: All Denominations & For anyone looking to find the right coven or doesn’t know what denomination they are.

Rating: 3 out of 5

Reason: I chose this book because A) It is the latest thing I found at the Library and B) It had the clear views of the separate denominations (which is rare)by people who actually follow those paths.

The Review

This book is excellent for finding different denominations (Different Paths of Wicca) though it left me questioning more about them then when I started. For anyone seeking a Coven this book is a great resource guide to get started in finding exactly when kind of coven would be the best for your particular set of belief's. For those just trying to figure out what it is they believe in the first place, this is also an excellent start. Anyone who already knows there path and have no, what I call "holes", in there faiths probably would be disappointed with this book. Research into other paths of Wiccan faith should be found in other books beside this one, but it gives a quick explanation and basis enough to help someone start out. Each piece about a separate path is written by someone who follows that path and knows it very well, so there is no bias against other paths. Also other resources such as other books on each path and websites to check out are at the end of each piece on a path so you have another step toward learning more about it. Recommended for beginners.
