Witches peek from greeting cards and advertisements, and they dig twisted roots from the ground. Witches dance beneath the stars and lurk around cauldrons. Witches heal, witches scare, witches creep, and witches teach!
A compendium of witches through the ages, from earliest prehistory to some of the most significant modern practitioners, The Weiser Field Guide to Witches explores who, and what, a witch is. From such famed historical legends as Aleister Crowley, Marie Laveau, and Elizabeth Báthory to the popular literary and cinematic figures Harry Potter and the Wicked Witch of the West, Illes offers a complete range of the history of witches. Included also are the sacred - sis, Hekate, Aradia - and the profane - the Salem Witch Trials and The Burning Times. The Weiser Field Guide to Witches is appropriate for listeners of all ages and serves as an excellent and entertaining introduction for those fascinated by the topic.

Good, breif, and biased
Yes, well spent b/c the subject matter was unlike any I had been previously exposed to.
Dump the caffeine high of the narrator.
A narrator who didn't speed throughout the book. Had to listen on "slow" speed, which distorted the quality and certainly was extremely annoying.
