This is an absolutely fantastic book for any who are looking to learn about nearly any aspect of runecraft. I myself have often tried to study runes but would only find partial information on a few of the runes and never on how to make runestones. As a skilled practioner of magick, I can recommend this book to beginners or advanced adepts, such as myself. While most of my magickal experience is more of the hermetic sort, I know what works, and believe you me every instruction in this book works, and, if you have just half an ounce of imagination, and about the same amount of intelligence, you can create and add your own aspects, and make this a very powerful craft indeed!

Ive had this book for many years  and to the point that its falling apart, and ive literally had to tape it together i use it as a plain no nonsense , Laemens terms to casting the runes or useing this in conjunction with a runic deck and granted some argue over its simplicity or the summation of the runes But i could care less if the true runic spellings arent listed if your smart enough to read across most runic books that go into long winded explanations then a simple book isnt for you Ive had great successes with this  book as one of my references and i hope this does become an e reader with quicker tabs for each runeand hopefully the runic symbol for each chapter that corresponds  to the quick meeaning one seeks without all the extras......

This is an excellent book. Short, concise summaries, as well as accurate histories of runes. This would be a fantastic book for anyone wanting to learn about runes, as well as anyone looking for a new perspective on a classic topic.
