The Penguin Book of Witches

This book was an excellent read and it talks about everything you need to know about witches in detail.  The author is very knowledgeable in regards to witches.  I was really enthralled with the book and couldn't put it down until I finished it.  I will
let my friends borrower this book. 

The writing style of the era can make for some thick reading, but the author has done a superb job of providing overviews and notes which clarify the original material. While the language of the texts can be a bit stiff for the 21st century reader, most of the accounts are perfectly readable (excepting, of course, James I and his bloody "whereas").
