    1. Excellent book. I cannot rave enough, for the author prefaces the book listing his biases! OMG I am not gay, but I think I love the man! Every human being has biases, and I am sick and tired of people pretending they are unbiased! Its crap and its so refreshing to see a little honesty.My only difficulty with the book was the section detailing rituals, and I am showing my biases here. Religious rituals give me the screaming willies (even those of my Christian brethren – I WILL NOT participate i [...]


    2. I read this as a follow-up to The Druidry Handbook. It certainly has a lot more depth than Greer's book. That being said, I got the impression that much of this was highly specific to Bonewits' tradition and experience. It seems to me that this would be most useful and interesting to someone who intends to become a Druid or is seriously considering that path.


    3. I always did like Mr. Bonewits. His writing style is humorous, interesting, and educational. He would have been a great college teacher if the university system would have let him.In this book, he veers off the magical path he covered in Real Magic. Even though he does an amazing job covering a normally boring subject like prehistory, as well as the background of historical and reconstructed druidism, he spends very little time addressing modern druid magic spite of what the back of the book say [...]


    4. "Essential" as in the bare essentials NOT as inabsolutely necessary . This is not a "how-to" book, but brief overview/introduction of what druidism is. The first half is a history of druidism, from the Celts to the 17th c. revivalists to the modern neo-pagans. The second half is a survey of common beliefs and practices of some current druid groups.If you have no idea where to start this will point you in the right direction(s). If you've looked up a few druid organizations online and read over t [...]


    5. This is an excellent book for people involved in the Neopagan Druid movement, and is one that I recommend for all people starting out on that path. The late, great Isaac goes into detail about the modern developments in the 20th century and various types of New Druids. It is good to know that their are many interpretations of Druidry and that people worship in different ways.


    6. Not much to say about this. It was informative and Bonewits maintains a very open and accepting atmosphere. It's a great primer for anyone looking to get involved in druidism.






    7. An excellent book for people involved in the Neo-pagan Druid movement, a must read for all people starting out on that path.
