    Beware for nook

    I was unable to read this book on my nook because the pages had been scaned in and contained a slew of numbers and letters that made it look more like a computer progam than a book. It was to hard to read inbetween all of them. So if you are downloading it you may just want to buy the book.

    Required Reading.

    The Golden Bough is required reading for anyone interested in any branch of Occultism, Mysticism, and the Psychic Arts and Sciences. This is heavy duty reading but well worth the effort. It's a standard reference work but should be considered as a textbook, also. Ranks up there with Joseph Campbell, Carl G. Jung, Allen Watts, and Carlos Castanada. This book is a must read.

    A Classic Work in Anthropology and Literature

    If you have the appreciation and certainly the time to sit down and really become engaged in Sir James George Frazer's work, you will find the text thought provoking and deep. The poetic language Frazer uses to eloquently portray the savagery of man contrasted to that of the evil of modern man provides one with a imaginary journal led by Frazer traveling through the depths of mans darkest beliefs and actions. This classic work is merely the abridgment, and the full set runs at 12 volumes. Frazer sat down in 1890 to answer one simply question and did not find it answered until 1914. This literary class has been an inspiration to the work of Anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski, Poet T.S. Elliot, and even film director Francis Ford Copolla. Pick this up, even if you read passages from it, you will not be disappointed.
