    A Great Read

    The Rosary Handbook is a wonderful book, it has a surprising amount of information to be only 141 pages. I love how this book shows the depth and meaning of each prayer.

    Not worth the cost of the book.

    Very dissapointed ! I paid too much for 92 pages. In the future I will buy Catholic books from the store, not the first time I've been ripped off . A few other books were cheated of a lot of pages missing.
