Harrow's book, together with Isaac Bonewit's Cult Danger Evaluation Form <[...] helped me shape my incredibly difficult decision to leave my disfunctional coven.
Harrow gives us an excellent overview of what a coven member should expect in terms of ethics, and well-functioning group dynamics. It should be mandatory reading for every HP and HPS, and equally so for every wannabe.
If things aren't working for you in your Pagan circle or coven, read this book, and you can find tools to help it run better. Or to raise your consciousness about when it's time to hit the road.
You won't find practical magic or spells in this book. But you will find a well thought-out analysis of what makes Pagan groups work well together.

There are a couple of good books on the market that deal with Wicca Covens, and in my opinion there are not enough.
While a lot of Covens cover within their own group their own rules and such regarding how their covens are structured and formed, those outside the coven structure are sadly lacking in the necessary teaching, information and skills needed to undertake such a project.
Judy Harrow presents here an in depth book dealing with the formation, principles and workings of a Coven. From starting a coven to dealing with individuals within the Coven group to deciding when to meet or how to perform ritual together, it is all discussed in a grown up manner with a common sense approach to the problems and day to day workings.
There are way too many people out there who are calling their group a "Coven" only to have someone realize they are nothing more than a working group. And there are those out there who really do want to create a working coven, and need a guide to help them put it all together. Many people do not know what a real coven should look and feel like. This book can help clarify a lot of these questions.
No one book will contain all the answers or have everything you need to be completely assured of a successful coven. But this book covers much ground in the practical approach to forming a Coven. If you are taking the first steps, or think you have a coven and are not sure, or looking for experiences from someone who has been in a coven, this book can certainly help you out.

If you thought Scott Cunningham had his feet planted well on terra firma, watch out for Judy Harrow, hie female counterpart in the literary world of the Craft. Her pragmatism and leadership skills are staggering, and her anecdotes of personal experience invaluable. If there's considerations left out for anything, you'd never know it until you ran a coven yourself. But even if you are a solitary practitioner, this book can wisen you to all the methods of evaluating a coven to see if it's the right one for you.

Judy Harrow has two great qualifications for writing this book. She is a Wiccan High Priestess of many years standing, and is also a trained psychologist who understands group dynamics. This book is a wonderful resource for anyone involved in coven work, especially for coven leaders. In fact, most of the information in this book can be used for running any type of group. Highly recommended!

because the title of the book is not actually what the book is about. A better title would be something like: Group Dynamics In Wiccan Covens And How To Deal With Interpersonal Conflicts In A Wiccan Coven.
The part of this book that includes an evaluation of how dangerous a given group is was quite funny. Turns out that the the mainstream religions are far more "cult-like" than Wicca. So when you tell someone you're a Wiccan and they tell you that you belong to a cult, give them a copy of the evaluation form in this book, and watch 'em squirm, at least if they evaluate their own religion honestly! This book is an absolutely essential book for coven leaders, and members, to read. Along with Covencraft by Amber K, which IS about the nitty-gritty, day-to-day stuff on how to start, organize and run a coven and Inside A Witches Coven by Edain McCoy, which is a wonderful book in helping a person decide if they should join a coven or not, these three books contain invaluable information.
I cannot stress enough the need to find out everything you can about coven life before you decide to join or start one! Speaking from personal experience, when everything is working being in a coven is of the best experiences a Witch can have. When everything is not working out, being in a coven is one of the most painful experiences a Witch can have.
These books will make you think of things you would probably not have thought about on your own. Don't be naive enough to assume that all Witches will act ethically and kindly all the time, lest you end up sifting through the wreckage of a group you helped found!
All three of these books should be in any coven's library! Thank Goddess I found them and the three of us are who are left are now in the process of rebuilding our group.

If you are in a coven, read this. If you are thinking of joining a coven, read this. If you are thinking of starting and/or leading a coven, use this book to beat yourself about the head and shoulders with!
Seriously, Judy's contributions to the pagan community are many. She has a counseling website that is amazing, but this book is hands-down the best on this subject. She has absolutely "been there, done that" and I am sure her T-shirt is old, too.
Running any group is difficult, but when you throw religion into the mix... it is threetimes as difficult. It hits you mentally, spiritually and physically. Harrow's book is like having an elder friend to turn to when times get rough. She goes into group dynamics and interpersonal relating as well.
My copy will probably have to be replaced because I know I am wearing it out.
