Forget it, this is just more commercialism from Blum to follow his other new-age psycho-bable rune packs. This one has "amethyst" pebbles inscribed with runes instead of the ubiquitous ceramic rune cookies. If you really want to learn about runes, try one of the other books linked from this page (one that is NOT written by Blum), and make your own runes or buy them elsewhere.

The runes have been very helpful to me in early recovery. 4 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm new to AA, and this was a gift from my temporary sponsor. The meditations in this book have really helped me because they are insightful, poetic, and give me an idea to focus on throughout my day. (I don't use them as fortune telling stones, but I do let them suggest daily lessons for me.) The writing is beautiful and very positive and reassuring. In fact, next time I have my book with me, I'm going to send another review and quote from the "acceptance" meditation which begins, "This is a rune of major blessing, blessings bestowed and blessings received." I like this book much more than my scolding Hazelden meditations.
Stones to Build On 20 Feb 2008
By Hope Florence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Serenity Prayer has been used by thousands of people for the wisdom in its words. This little book takes you through each significant phrase, using runes as a learning tool.Runes are simply stones but as the book explains this is a lovely blend of old and new, helping to build and nourish the spirituality within all of us.
This prayer is often used by people in 12 step programs, and the book and the runes can complement the prayer, making it even more meaningful.
Reading the book, following the simple directions is a very good way of slowing down, breathing deeply and finding peace in your life.

"Soothing" 12 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While I personally prefer the other books in this series, I have found the insights helpful. Don't like the cover though, it scratches too easily. The photograph on the cover makes it impossible to take to work. If my boss found out i'd had a drinking problem, i'd lose my job. P.S. I don't find Hazelden's books scolding, straight talk helped me stay sober.
Very Simplistic book based on the Serenity Prayer 25 May 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was disappointed when I received this book because the back section was hanging by a thread. But, the seller gave me the option of return or discount on product. They were wonderful to work with, I highly recommend.
excellent condition 24 Oct 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent read for anyone that is managing sobriety. The book is a very short read and brings together five Runes that are relevant to the 12 steps.
