4.0 out of 5 stars A "must have " book for anyone interested in The Runes
This small slim volume has all the information that a beginner needs to make serious headway into the study of Runelore. It is equally usefull to those with more experience due the remarkable clarity with which the author presents her information. Rune meanings, casts, bindrunes, correspondences and magical rituals are all covered. I have spent double the price of this...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Basic Intro
This is perhaps the best book if you want to learn rune magick in the least ammount of time. The author is accurate and gets right to the point. She presents a simple, effective system in a simple, effective way. I'd give it higher, but there is very little background info in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A "must have " book for anyone interested in The Runes, 17 Jun 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
This small slim volume has all the information that a beginner needs to make serious headway into the study of Runelore. It is equally usefull to those with more experience due the remarkable clarity with which the author presents her information. Rune meanings, casts, bindrunes, correspondences and magical rituals are all covered. I have spent double the price of this book on larger publications that provide half the information that Ms. Peschel conveys in this one small volume. Many may balk at her inclusion of Blum's blank rune but even here the author clearly acknowledges that it has no historical basis and that it's use is, like all runic practice, a matter of personal intuition. An invaluable volume for any student of the Runes, you simply cannot go wrong with this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good for beginners, 16 May 2001
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A priceless guide to the runes, 8 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
This book is perfect and easy. The explanations of runes within its pages are perfect for the beginner as well as the veteran. The refrence tables in the book for magick works are also one of the best I've seen so far. Though small and compact, this book holds a king's ransom in runic knowledge and no one should pass up the opportunity to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful book!, 27 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
This book taught me a lot about runes. Their uses in magick, divination, and in making talismans. Lisa gave a thorough and concise description of the meaning of each rune and how they read when they are spread out in a reading. This was easily the best $5.00 I ever spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellant beginners book of rune divination, 10 Feb 2004

James Wood "jimwood43" (SCOTLAND) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
As a beginner, I found this book easy to read with excellent concise information for such a small book. The size of the book has benefits too as It is easy to carry around for reference purposes and fits in your pocket. I'm not sure if it's too basic for more advanced users but for me it is an excellent starting point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid runelore, except for the blank rune, 14 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
This is a wonderful introductory book to the runes, inexpensive, pocket-size, and solid runelore. The only significant flaw is the inclusion of the "blank rune", but it's easy to skip over that section. (Rip it out!) There is no historical support for use of a blank rune. Save it as a spare in case another one is lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immediately useful and iminently Practical!, 27 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
A slim volume, to be sure, but packed with information that make the Runes immediately available to anyone. As a parlor game, as a serious tool of divination, or as an interesting tool for the examination of the inner Self, Ms.Peschel's thoughtful and entertaining volume is an absolute "must have" for the student of the occult, the arcane, and the mystical. It will serve the reader for years. And if the reader is serious in the study, he/she will need more than one copy! I've worn out three, so far--and the fourth is in bad, dog-eared, dilapitated condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Good for the beginning Runecaster, 16 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
This is a Very informative book, it makes for good easy reference material for an experienced Runeworker, and is easy to use and understand by the beginning caster. Lisa Peshel has managed to keep the theme of this book as being a guidline and to moreso trust personal intuition, which is one of the most important things to learn when using Runes. It is a job Well Done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good content. Best book on runes I've ever read., 28 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
This is a really good book. Definately one of the best I've ever read. Lisa gives her veiws but the book is not over-run with them. Good interperetations of the runes but she also tells you to trust your feelings. This is such a good book! If you are interested in casting the runes this book is a must.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magick (Llewellyn's New Age) (Paperback)
This book has everything you need to master the runes. Due to the book size and price i thought it wouldn't have any usefull information, but i was wrong.
The book is easy to read, the author is very direct in her words (there's no useless information or words just to fill the pages).
I'm glad i bought this book!!!
