This is a fun high level primer on Saints categorized by day. Since I bought it used, it was worth every penny. Really, though, not enough death and violence.
The book has a tremendous number of saints listed. Their listed by feast days rahter then alphabetically which is more difficult to jump though. The saints which are listed are not given much space in the book either. If you are looking for a book with many many listed saints this is the one but if you are looking for a book with in depth discriptions this would not be your book. Definately a great reference book to have for recalling from memory. I give it four stars because the author did a great job of recognizing a large number of saints.
