Biografia breu
Scott Cunningham was born in Michigan but spent most of his life in San Diego, California. In high school, he discovered Wicca, and was initiated into an eclectic Wiccan coven. In the early 1980s, he spent some time in a group led by author Raven Grimassi. Scott was skilled in drawing on his knowledge of natural magic to write books that were comprehensible to people who had no prior understanding of Wicca or modern Paganism. He became one of modern Paganism's most popular writers. In 1983, Scott was diagnosed with lymphoma. He suffered from a variety of illnesses over the next decade, including meningitis, before passing away in 1993 at the age of thirty-six. Following his death much of his material was repackaged by publishers and released posthumously.



A Great reference Book, however the downside is the author does not state where he got his information from in the plant profiles, not does he indicate the chemical constituents of the herbs, what herbs should be used internally or topically with caution, what herbs should never be used internally, etc...

Great Reference Book of tthe Magickal and Healing Uses of Crystals, Metals and Gems.
I do have some issues with this book is that Cunningham does not really reference where he got his information from, I would be happier if this book at better references of source material.
The book also does not go into Moh hardness of the various crystals. This is important as the Moh Harness Scale determines how hard a crystal/gem is and depending on where a crystal falls on the scale, would determine how you would store it as different hardness can damage other crystals when stored together.
He also does not go into depth which crystals are toxic in the individual profiles. He mentions making Gem Elixirs but does not state in the profiles which crystals should be used via the direct method (within water) or indirect method (empty vessel with crystal in it, sitting in another vessel of water), which is very important due to some crystals being toxic.
He mentions methods of cleansing crystals, but does not indicate which crystals should not be cleansed using water (some crystals dissolve/are damaged with water), some crystals get bleached or can cause fires if exposed to the sun, etc....

I read this book years ago and felt drawn back to it recently. The library had an audiobook ready so I took it as a sign. Still a great, easy to access book.

Initial Thoughts:
1."I am listening to the audiobook."
2."It is like listening to a podcast. He noted how difficult it is to find other pagans, witches,wiccans PWW and even though more than two decades later we have amazing technology. It would be so much better to meet other PWW in real life even if we continue to still practice solo and not join a coven."
3."better to listen to while busy to not fall asleep to the relaxing information of PWW."
4.Listening to this book makes me wish audiobooks for textual and information filled sacred texts like this were more widely available."

I Deeply enjoyed this audiobook. I see why a lot of Pagans, Wiccans, & Witches PWW recommend it. Unfortunately, he died young he could have done so much more. I wish I had a physical copy to own and use as a reference. I also hope someone could update and add on to it because 33 years have passed, and some things have changed and modernized. This is one of my top 3 favorites of all the PWW books I have read so far. It contains a thorough glossary of terminology, parts of his grimoire/book of shadows, spells, baking instructions, offering, and diety direction. Highly recommendable. It can also be very overwhelming as it is full of information. Nonetheless necessary in our religion.
