A wonderful introduction to the Runes
Reviewed in the United States on May 31, 2020
If you are looking for a great book to get your feet wet, so to speak, this is a wonderful place to start. I have utilized the Runes since the early 80's and have collected any and all volumes on the subject. Whilst they all contain mostly the same thing, every once in a while I find a book that throws a little bit of its own spin. This is such a book. I found it an easy read, though I would have liked just a bit more mythology in here. That being said, I am a voracious fan of mythology and too much would be a distraction for the beginning Runester. So to fill the niche that this book is targeting, it has the right amount. I found the prose not dry and academic, but instead a personal dissertation of one's own experience in working with the Runes. This was refreshing to me as there are too many books on this subject that just seem dead. This author has captured his personal journey and I was quite pleased to see similar experiences akin to my own. Do I recommend this book? I ABSOLUTELY recommend it.
