This book has seen several names and printings; "The Art of Divination" and "The Pocket Guide to Fortune Telling", but any way you look at it, it is Scott Cunningham exploring the different ways and tools we use for divination.
The book is a collection of the various forms we use to call upon our abilities to foretell events and has some wonderful history associated with these various styles and tools. Divination is explored in various cultures and with various tools.
Also explored are the ways we can use these ways of divination and how to practice the various arts. While the more common ways of divination, tarot cards and crystal balls and such, are discussed, Scott also presents us with mirrors, herbs, cloth and other non-traditional ways of foretelling future events.
All of this is done with Scott's careful research, simple style of explanation and the usual wit and wisdom he applied to everything he wrote.
There is a good bibliography, the book has been indexed and there are diagrams and graphics that work well with the written material.
While this book addresses those who are beginners to the art of divination, there are little gems of information that could be appreciated by all levels of practitioners and the histories and lesser known methods of divination will interest all.
This is a good addition to your library if you do not have this already as one of the other titles. However, even if you do, you may want a copy to replace the worn one on your shelves or just to keep to lend out. My lending copies always seem to find a good home and I need to replace them on a regular basis.
