'This book satisfies the suspense aroused by its long-awaited arrival. Too often the Malleus is referenced offhandedly by those who have never read it and probably never will. Now, if they choose to, they will at least have the opportunity to do so with a less biased, more accurate translation. This laudable effort at revisionist historiography in the field of witchcraft may, ironically, swing the scholarly pendulum back in the other direction, toward rationality and away from paranoid melodrama.'
