A waste of time,
This review is from: The Book of Spells (Hardcover)
Really, it is a waste of your time and money. If you're truly interested in Spellcraft then there are far better books out there. The spells detailed are fairly standard. They usually require lots of items, which you then have to spend money on acquiring. I really don't see why anyone would pay for them (I was given the book as a gift), as one can find millions of others just like them, free online. The `emergency sealed spells' are pretty useless, because unless you know what's in them you don't know if they're going to be suitable for your needs. No serious magical practitioner would find this useful, or for that matter particularly entertaining. Besides, most serious practitioners write their own spells.
If you're just a dabbler and want a giggle it has lots of pretty pictures, looks good on a bookshelf and might keep you entertained for a bit. But seriously you can find better information elsewhere, on the Internet (where you can get it free), or in other books.
