More About the Author

Philip always wanted to be a writer and wrote short stories when he was 11 and 12. But then he found the Buddha, the Druids, and Psychoanalysis, and this was all so interesting he forgot about writing until a publisher he met at a dinner party in London, when he was in his late thirties, invited him to write a book. The result, 'The Elements of the Druid Tradition', soon became one of the best sellers in the 'Elements Of' series, and he was asked to write a follow-up: 'The Druid Way'. Twenty years' later he's still writing, having broadened his scope from the topic of Druidry, with its contemporary environmental relevance, to include the history of magic in England in 'The Book of English Magic', the subject of sacred sites in the lavishly illustrated 'Sacred Places', and the subject of nudity in religion, politics and popular culture in 'A Brief History of Nakedness.'

First Sentence
A road protester who has chained himself to a tree to prevent it being torn down to build a motorway and the late Queen Mother entertaining guests at Clarence House might seem to have nothing in common. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
This is an extremely useful book for anyone wanting a basic introduction to modern druidry, its beliefs and practices and how it relates to historic and pre-historic forms. As you might expect from Carr Gomm the subject is handled with quiet authority and written in a highly readable narrative style. The format of the book, written to answer a series of straight forward questions proves a simple but effective method of communicating the basics. If you want to get a handle on modern Druidry I suggest you buy this book.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Greywolf TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 25 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
This gem of a book is, quite simply, among the very best on the market for anyone wanting to know what contemporary Druids believe and do. Yes, it does exactly what it says on the cover. It is clear, concise, well-researched, historically accurate, eminently suited to anyone new to the subject, but with plenty to think about for us old hands as well. Philip Carr-Gomm writes so well that he conveys quite complex ideas and information in a style accessible to anyone from intelligent teens to geriatrics like me. It would be great to see this book in all school and university religious studies departments. Highly, thoroughly and absolutely recommended. If it were possible, I'd give it seven stars ...

This is a good little book. I have certainly found it interesting. There are a lot of "quotes" from people regarding their interest in Druidry, some are quite informative, some I skipped over. The book has made me realise my own Druid interests and, that I can still follow my birth religion whilst putting into practice some of the more basic Druid beliefs, which practice I do believe has made my life less stressful. Philip Carr-Gomm certainly knows how to reach out to people.
For the price it is worth a read.

While I admire the author and the focus he has bought to modern druidry, I admit I struggled with reading this book. It is difficult to pin down exactly what druids believe, so full marks for trying. If you don't know a druid to have a chat to, then I would say to buy this book. If you do know a druid (or druids) then have a good long chat with them instead.

This is a lovely little book. It is beautifully written, clear and very informative.
As a student of religion I found it a refreshing change from the much heavier reading I have done recently!
It strikes a chord with me unexpectedly and so I will read more from this author and about non dogmatic druidery.
Who knows? It could be life changing!

I found this little book a clear summary of what lies behind the ideas of the druids. It brought into focus ideas I had about them previously, being clearly written and with no superfluous philsophical refletions. Highly recommended.
