Some of the flashy books coming out lately such as, The Complete Illustrated Guide to the Tarot, Complete Illustrated Guide to the Runes, and the Complete Illustrated Guide to Numerology, though overviews, these books do not skimp on the information they provide their readers.
This book is no exception. The Illustrated Guide to Wicca contains both practical and breathtaking graphics, and just about all the information you need to understand Wicca, from the legends and lore, to all the basic how-to information.
Everything is covered, beliefs, practices, techniques, Wheel of the Year rituals, other ritual ideas including first, second, and third degree initiations.
The authors reveal the diversity among Wiccans by having each Wheel ritual in the book focus on a different pantheon (Yule invokes the energies of Isis and Osiris; Beltane invokes Thor and Sif, for examples). They also include some nice pages devoted to charges and invocations to other deities. It's no great multicultural assortment, but it provides just enough to stimulate the beginner's interests.
The book is ideal for the curious, those at the introductory level and young people. Those beyond being just curious should, of course, supplement this with other books, such as the Spiral Dance by Starhawk, or Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner, by Scott Cunningham.
This book might also be nice for more experienced practitioners to have around, if they need a non-threatening source to answer questions about the craft to those on the outside. This is a nicely organized, carefully constructed, beautifully illustrated resource.

"illustrated guide to wicca" war das erste buch, dass ich mir vor 2 jahren als neuling zum thema gekauft habe und ich habe es nie bereut! gerade für einsteiger ist das buch gut geeignet und empfehlenswert. obwohl es für covenarbeit konzipiert worden ist, und die verschiedenen götterpantheone zu den einzelnen jahresfesten etwas verwirrend sein mögen, kann man auch als solo-wicca gut mit grists buch arbeiten. besonders schön sind die invokationen und charges zu verschiedenen gottheiten, aber auch der rest stimmt. kaufen, lesen, lieben! ;-)

People have mixed feelings about this book. At once you can tell that it is more than a coffee table book. The table of contents is extensive and there is an index in the back. Tony and Aileen look like they put a lot of effort into the book to not look like a bunch of dry words that leave every thing to your imagination. This is the closest you will come to a paper version of TV program.
Now that being said with this broad coverage there is not much depth. Some things may look misleading and other subjects are more than open for interpretation. So far this review may be looked at as words without substance. So you can draw your conclusion from this brief paragraph from the book:
In Wiccan ritual we meet goddess and god directly. A priestess is invoked as the goddess-she becomes the goddess and speaks the goddess's words. This is known as "drawing down the moon."
Many things are essential but missing the point. However this book would be a good addition to the library and a slightly different view to contemplate.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wicca 101 5. Februar 2013
Von Deborah Maynard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a wonderful book for individuals that want to know the basics of Wicca and how to perform rituals. It is slanted towards Gardnerian tradition, but it gives individuals a good idea of the practices.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Colorful pictures and illustrations 2. Juni 2010

This is one of the first books I read when I got into the occult. It is an illustrated book so there are a lot pictures but there is also a lot of info about the wisecraft as well as the Sabbat rituals. It also serves as a good reference guide. I recommend for both beginners and seasoned practitioners.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Beginners Guide 4. September 2007
Von A. M. Gilchrest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have been interested in Wicca for years and have looked at many books to learn more about it. I have never found a good overview book that told me what I want to know until this book. Most books give so much information it is hard to sift out just what you want to know which was "what exactly is Wicca and is it right for me". This book answers the basic question, or rather, gives you just the information you need to answer that question for yourself. I especially love how the authors remind us to not take ourselves too seriously which makes this read very unintimidating and open. This book is clearly written for beginners and does a very good job of providing a well written overview of Wicca.

I wanted to give this book 4 and a half stars, the only reason I couldn't give it five is due to the few places through the book where things are not explained as well as I thought they should have been (like evocations for the solitary practitioner, this book is geared more toward coven practice), also some pronunciation suggestions would have been nice in a few spots.

Overall a very good book, I would recommend it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful to look at, and good for those interested in Wicca 8. Juli 2001
Von Jonathan Burgoine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
For those of us who learn better visually, "The Illustrated Guide to Wicca" is a bit of a treasure. It's beautifully illustrated, with lavish full-colour references to myth, symbol, rite, and the famous faces of Wicca.
That said, as far as the content goes, it's quite light. The very basics are in here, and in that, it is a suitable beginners book, but with so many other introductory books out there that better describe the faith of Wicca, this one ends up being a little short.
Focusing on a Gardnerian path of Wicca, the book explores initiation rites, covens, the history of Wicca, sabbat rites, the elements and gods and goddesses, among many other subtopics. Rituals are given a chapter of their own, and a final chapter explores Wicca in the 21st Century. There's a suggested reading list, which is a good thing.
The book is okay, and the information in it is also okay - it's just not very in depth. If there'd been a tacked on "Introductory" somewhere in the title, I'd have ranked it higher. That said, this is a great book to put in the hands of someone who doesn't know what you mean when you say you are Wiccan, though if you're not Gardenerian, it'd be a little misleading. The niche for this book is for people who want to learn a little about the faith, so I see it best used in the hands of those who are related to or friends of Wiccans, and who wish to learn a little bit more.
