Book Review: The Haitian Vodou Handbook

I have a certain level of trepidation as I read any book devoted to a religion which actively incorporates the use of magic in the daily life of its followers. The gods (or in this case, the lwa) know that there exists a surplus of "spell books" on the market today. There are plenty of books which reveal the "inner workings" of "non-traditional" (read "mainstream") religions. And the number of authors out there who claim high degrees of initiation which prohibit them from saying anything intelligible is legion. This is NOT one of those books and/or authors.
