I will say though, that I found to book to both be entertaining and inspiring. I sped through the 500 odd pages in about 5 days. Something that I do don't much these days. For anyone with the slightest interest in Magic and/or English History, they will find this book a joy. I have even gone on to look at other publications by the author Phillip Carr-Gomm.
And I will re-read again soon.
When people have seen me sat reading the book I’ve easily got them interested in talking about different subject within it and have now since bought 4 more copies which I have given to people as gifts; it’s that interesting. It’s something you can dip in and out of as you please.
