I used this book to help me learn to read runes. It's well organized and provides plenty of information to get a good feel about how to do this form of divination. I can't compare it to other books on how to read runes, since I don't think I've ever seen one. ( )

This book is dedicated with love and gratitude to Cal and Becky Neal, without whose support and caring above and beyond the call of duty, it could never have seen print at all, and most especially to my son Dylan MacLir, who made it all possible.
