The book is very shourt and precise. It gave me a great deal of insight into angels and what their roles are. I never knew there were angels covering every aspect of life - an angel for buildings, air craft as well as animals and plants, but then I do recall years ago, reading about spirits which look after everything. This was reading books by Lobsang Rampa. I think this is a good bood to read if you don't have a lot of time - each chapter is short and to the point, and give little exercises to do on how to connect with angels.
This is a beautiful, simple but well-written book, as are all of Diana Cooper's books among those I have encountered. It is printed on glossy paper and contains lovely angel pictures. The chapters are short and the book is intensely readable.
It is apparently an update to an earlier book "A little light on angels", which I haven't read.
Diana Cooper must be regarded as the foremost expert on sngels in the world. She has a unique contact with them and has written numerous other angel books. She has founded the "Diana Cooper School", thus providing teaching about the angelic world.
We are told many stories about persons, many of whom are Diana's clients, being healed by the angels in impressive ways.
We are introduced to the concept of "angels of buildings". I would probably call these "devas". I am not sure if there is any difference between angels and devas, probably not. The author does not go into this. (If I have practical problems in my home, mostly in the kitchen, I ask my household deva to help me solve the situation, and it invariably does, often in a seemingly miraculous way. Similarly, if I have problems with my computer, I ask various computer devas to come to my aid, and once I experienced an absolute miracle of computer repair of something that had been bothering me for years.)
We learn about interdimensional portals, such as Stonehenge, Macchu Pichu and one about the Great Zimbabwe.
There are millions of archangels, but only a few work with humans, though new archangels are now being assigned to do so. Archangel Purlimiek is in charge of nature, Archangel Fhelyai looks after the animal kingdom, and Archangel Butyalil, the universal angel, is in charge of the "stars and cosmic currents", while Archangel Gersisa "of the inner Earth" works with the ley lines.
The Archangels we know generally have a masculine energy, but each masculine archangel has a twin flame with a feminine energy; thus, Faith is the twin flame of Michael, Hope the twin flame of Gabriel, Mary the twin flame of Raphael, and so on.
Each archangel has a retreat location in the "etheric around planet Earth", and at night before we go to sleep we can ask to be taken to one of these retreats for purification and other forms of assistance.
The book also presents information about the various orders of angels: seraphim, cherubim, cherubs, thrones, dominions, virtues, powers, principalities. archangels, and "standard" angels.
There is an interesting chapter on the dark angels, which also have their purpose.
A useful, final chapter includes several delightful exercises, such as one by which to meet your guardian angel, one to help you cleanse and heal your heart, one to meet the lords of karma, etc etc.
This book provided me with much new information.
I strongly recommend that you read it. I shall be trying to get hold of all Diana Cooper's books, since I find them extremely inspiring.

This book is amazing. It has a plethora of information, covering so many aspects regarding the angelic kingdom. It is definitely a must read. Alongside with information regarding specific angels, their roles and how they can help us, at the end of this book are beautiful exercises/meditations that help us connect with angels, increase our spiritual qualities with help from angels etc.
Both the content and the quality of the book are extremely high.
