"Prediction" Book of Amulets and Talismans (PBK)
Predictions: Amulets and Talismans is a very good introduction to the construction of talismans and amulets for use in many systems of magic. Each chapter is full of concise to the point information and general instructions. The book covers areas such as Astrology, Numerology, the construction of the talisman, and the materials most commonly used along with their occult properties. It may also be worth noting that the instructions given within the book by Jo Logan, draw upon a vast number of magical systems such as Kabalah and Rune Craft. Another aspect of this particular work that I found to be of great benefit to beginners, was again, the non cryptic manner in which the information is laid out, and the sheer flexibility and space for personalization afforded in this foundational method of Magic.
All in all a great starting point, my only negative thoughts on this work however was the slight "New Age" tone that I detected throughout, and also the presence of a 'moralistic' standpoint concerning the purposes the amulets and talismans can be utilized for, in this instance, the author's admonishment towards the use of the information towards 'malicious' ends, and the mention of a three fold law. However this is just a personal subjective observation.
All in all, a worthwhile purchase.
