Written by Owen Davies, a professor of social history at the University of Hertfordshire, it claims to be: "A history of the world's most dangerous books, from ancient Egypt to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, told in full for the first time."
The book was highly acclaimed by occultists, academics and the press. The Guardian newspaper published a feature called Top Ten Grimoires - books of spells and rituals - based on its research.
I've been wanting to read Grimoires ever since I heard about it and I've just got a copy. When I finish it, I will most certainly review it on A Bad Witch's Blog.
