This review is from: Reading the Runes: A Beginner's Guide (Paperback)
Kim has produced an excellent book on the runes in an easy to learn format that covers all you need to know to learn the Runes. In fact the book was conceived as a BAPS (British Astrological & Psychic Society) course book. As such the book is designed especially for those wanting to learn all about runes, not just how to read them, but also the history and mythology of each rune. Nicely illustrated with plenty of sample spreads and readings this book will teach you all you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction and more to the subject of Runes, 26 Jun 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Reading the Runes: A Beginner's Guide (Paperback)
Although there are a few books on runes very few are as comprehensive as this while not being to dry. It impart the knowledge in a very understandable way. Designed as a course book for the British Astrological & Psychic Society, it has been laid out in a methodical way and covers its history and mythology as well as the meaning behind each rune. The book has been designed for someone to learn to read the runes, so it includes lots of example spreads and layouts. It does not though forget the occult and magical use of runes and these are explained in this concise (200pages)book.

This book is a well presented manual with explanations of the history and uses of the runes. As you work your way through, you will find a well written guide to the interpretations of runes - both positive and negative, along with their magical uses. I particularly liked the chapter describing ways to make your own set of runes, and would say that I have learnt much from this book. It's easy to follow, with many illustrations, an excellent book for research into this subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start, with a modern outlook, 20 Oct 2011

This review is from: Reading the Runes: A Beginner's Guide (Paperback)
On the one hand I'm surprised this is used as a learning resource by BAPS as there are quite a few typo errors, and at least one contradiction within this edition. If you're into drawing a rune on a daily basis, it's also not easy to locate the rune meanings as they're not indexed individually. On the other hand, it is a valuable tool when learning about the runes, the historical 'story' behind them and their meanings. Written in modern, no frills language it should appeal to most students of the subject. I'd recommend you also source a more traditionally written resource to read alongside this so that you can compare and digest the information.
