Somewhat useful, but outdated and goofy. Bucklands history is gathered from the debunked myths of Margaret Murry, who should be researched before reading. Contains useful basic information, but also a lot of filler, and rituals directed at group practice. Worth reading, but in the company of your Salt shaker.
