Wicca: What's the Real Deal? Breaking Through the Misconceptions is a brand new, 176-page paperback book released by Schiffer Publishing on July 28, 2011. The book covers misunderstood Pagan/Wiccan/Witchcraft terminology, erroneous perceptions, misunderstood practices, and misunderstood historical information related to Witchcraft and Wicca. It also covers Wiccan traditions, the difference between the beliefs in magick and the signs/symptoms of a mental illness, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of choosing to walk the path of the Wiccan faith.
"It's important to note that, for people interested in Wicca, this book is going to explain a lot of terms and clarify a lot of misconceptions; it's not going to tell you how to do it. It doesn't include spells... this book teaches people how to convey what Wicca is about, what it isn't about, and for those just interested in the subject, it serves as a nice, rich, comprehensive resource about the Wiccan faith." - Angela Kaufman -
