I would like to give a negative 5 stars. The print is cut off on the edge of the page . Print is sloppy and mostly unreadable. Dont waste your money. The first comments must have came from whoever gets the money from this mess.
Unreadable pages that are cut off and each page looks like a photo copy of a book and is treated like an image. Since each page is an image you can't adjust font or background color.
This might have been a useful, even valuable, general reference guide to many elements of modern pagan thought. As it is, however, the reader will be disappointed at elements which detract from the publication's intended purpose. Chief among these is the extremely sloppy layout, which has words broken up, making them distracting, for no apparent reason. Near the beginning of the book (on page 8), a large black graphic element completely obscures the (also black) text, making it impossible to read. Also early on is a claim that cave images date back to "50,000 BC." If information like this is wrong, one wonders what else in the book may be innacurate. In actual fact, the oldest known images and magic or ritual related artifacts date back less than half that time. Add to these the thoughtless overall design, and occasional typographic errors, and what remains leaves a great deal to be desired. There is accurate information contained herein, and a good deal of it, but one wishes the author (and publication designer) had given necessary attention to details. This might have deserved five stars, and could in future, if a competent editor and designer give it a good reworking.
really enjoyed it :)
