This is one of my favourite books of the wooden books collection, and I have quite a few, maybe ten or more. I really like this one and wish it was bigger and had more information. But it has a lot of wonderful things in it and i usually keep it around. I am even carrying it in my bag at the moment. Even if you are not interested in alchemy there are many other things like art and paints and the sort. Definitely a MUST have!
