Maybe it's just me, but I just find it hard to jell with Scott Cunningham's writing style. I picked up this because the title appealed to me, and I thought maybe it would be different from his others, but no. I find it hard to wade through a old lore here, a spell there, etc. Most of his books have good information in them, but seem to be written is a kind of meandering style that just doesn't grab my attention. This probably would make a good housewarming gift for someone, particularly a Scott Cunningham fan (of which there are millions)! But for me personally, is was so-so.
