Cunningham, Scott: Wicca, A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner

Llewellyn, St Paul, MN 1988 ISBN 0-87542-118-0

This is the classic primer on Wicca recommended to newcomers to the craft. Cunningham provided a great service by producing a book that encourages one to form a working relationship with the Goddess and God without the need to find a coven for teaching. He covers everything from the Deities, to magic , to the holy days and to ritual design. He provides a Book of Shadows with suggested invocations and rituals. He also encourages the reader to design and perform a self-dedication rite. Nothing is covered in great detail, but it's enough to get one started, and there is encouragement all the way through to adapt his suggestions. ~WS
