This book offers one person's perception of the runic ones and what each rune means. I might not agree with many of the subjective interpretations in this book, but I really enjoyed reading it. I love the fact that it addresses the runes as living, sentient beings. I have worked with 'runics' for a few years now. It wasn't until I learned to work with these energies as sentient (and even personified) beings that my ability to truly understand them blossomed. This book offers one way of understanding runic energies and is certainly worth having as part of your collection if you are interested in such things. ( )
