    Magic MOBI ↠ Paperback magic free, Magic PDFI thought this was going to be a book about magic but it ended up being a very short history of Magick Not what I was expecting but not upset about it either Having read Owen Davies 'Paganism A Very Short Introduction' I knew I was going to enjoy the book either way Davies has a wonderful way of packing in a lot of information into a very small book as advertised and still finds a way to make is accessible and fun Injecting just the right amount of humor too keep it from getting dry I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in the history of magic and is looking for a global account
