very good for beginners, 16 May 2001
I have studied runes for several years and thought at first that this book would be a waste of time. It is a very good beginner's book but it can also offer insights unexpectedly to those with more experience. It is practical and very accessible. The divinatory meanings are useful, not always my understanding of the runes, but each person sees them differently. The suggestions for making runes of various sorts are good although some of the tables at the back are a little odd, being more to do with standard wicca than Norse practice. On the whole a very useful book.
