Book description
Quite a practical guide to working with Runes. It is perhaps not for the absolute beginner, but it is a pathway for those with a little knowledge looking to build more. The book is severely criticised by some as being too mixed up with non-authentic Asatru influences, such as Yoga. However, one can easily trace where Flowers has mixed in these elements, and they can be ignored. It does not make the work invalid, or unuseful for working with the runes.
