Format: Paperback
This book is well written and well researched. It contains valuable information about the History and the mythology behind the Ogam, even including Celtic storylines and folklore that correspond with each symbol. Where many books fail to back up the reasoning behind their conclusions (here referring to the meaning of the symbols) this book would even satisfy the 'occult purist', as although there are sections of personal invention on the authors part or methods taken from non Celtic background, they are clearly labelled as such. While there a very few books available on the Ogam, this book is worth getting for the serious practitioner, even if only for cross-reference purposes.

If you have tried to understand and learn the Ogam before and failed, have another try with this book! Paul Mountfort writes in a learned yet accessible way and provides useful visualisations which will help you to memorise the different symbols and their meanings. He links each one with Celtic mythology which makes it interesting and informative and adds to the rich texture and depths of the meanings. I highly recommend Mr Mountfort!

Same as the other??? 11 Dec. 2011
By Irish Celt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been researching for quite a long time and it seems that this is the same book as "Ogam: The Celtic Oracle of the Trees". Amazon didn't give us any sample pages for this book so we cannot compare. The ISBN #'s are different but in other sites this seems to be the first printing of the other book (Also available on Amazon). I already own the other book and would not be happy to buy it again only with a different cover. I've come across this issue at other times with Amazon and have bought or almost bought duplicate books in the past. Check out both titles before you decide.Ogam: The Celtic Oracle of the Trees: Understanding, Casting, and Interpreting the Ancient Druidic Alphabet
