And I have to say that is pretty much spot on, this is indeed a comprehensive guide to druidry.
The chapters covered are:
History of druidry
What is a druid?
Gods & Goddesses
Myth & Legend
Inspiration - this chapter also includes some lovely visualisation exercises
Animism and animal worship
Cycles of the sun, moon and earth - this chapter covers the sabbats too
Tools of the trade
Medicine & healing
Justice & wisdom
Having been on a similar path myself for many years now a lot of the information wasn't new, but it was all interesting. I especially enjoyed the chapter on Immrama.
Lovely to see all the cycles of the sun, moon and earth covered, rather than just the moon.
It reads well and is laid out in an easy to follow format, lots of interesting historic facts added to Luke's own understanding of druidry.
Comprehensive it certainly is and a must read for anyone interested in the path of druidry and even for those already on that path I would think as well. For someone on the druidic journey it will end up being very well thumbed and one of those books that is always referred back to for reference.
Neither is the author a dilettante. Luke Eastwood joined a druid grove in 2003 and the following year joined OBOD; he is now facilitator of the grove and the only original member left, he is also now a Druid grade member of OBOD, an Archdruid of Druid Clan of Dana and a regular contributor to several pagan magazines in Ireland and UK. In 2006 he founded irishdruidnetwork.org as a networking and information tool for the 32 counties of Ireland.
‘The Druid's Primer’ is his third book and has attracted the positive attention of a number of established writers and practitioners within the Druidic Tradition, notably Philip Carr-Gomm, John Michael Greer and Caitlín Matthews.
This book is an attempt by the author to collate the key aspects of a huge body of generally little-known Druidic knowledge, brought together by his extensive knowledge of known written works and personal experience, not to mention twenty-years involvement in the exploration of spiritual and esoteric development. As the editor of Brigid’s Fire magazine wrote “... It is a story of Luke's personal quest, but it is also, as its title suggests, a primer for a person who would like to know more about the subject. Certainly worth a read.”
There are very few books of this nature available which deal specifically with Irish paganism but this well researched and beautifully written book offers a wealth of information on this subject. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone even vaguely interested in druidry, our ancestors, or our native gods.
