    I read "Symbols" by Sandra Forty from the first page to the last and found that this book not only had spelling errors but contradictions. This is a good book to peak curiosity in certain subjects because I found out quite a bit I did not know. However, with the evident mistakes I have to question how accurate the provided information is. My boyfriend, keen of astrology and mythology, noticed several brief statements that can be misleading or just flat out wrong. Other claims could have been accurate but were too confusing and I would want to cross-reference information that I had a greater interest in.

    The book is well explained and organized.

    The best thing about the book is how the author organizes the symbols from ancient egypt to contemporary american symbols. Also it makes it easy to understand because the information is short but efficient yet some symbols need more information. Some symbols are repeated, BUT if you notice they are classified in diffrent topic because in America a symbol can be something but at china signify a diffrent thing.
