It's hard to put into words exactly what I got out of this book.
For some time now I've had an interest in folklore, both as an ancient tradition and in the ways in which it is re-emerging in new-age trends. I've had trouble reconciling the duality between what is imagined and what is real, and exactly where the line is drawn.
This book answered that question for me. The distinction between "reality" and "literal reality" is a valuable one, for which I will always be grateful to Mr Harpur. You may not get the same kind of insight from the book, but you might be surprised at what you do take from it.
