if your into magic and know how it works already this book will help on your way to rune magic and conneting to the gods
refer the tree of life =norse gods 9 world relationship not integrated os might need a path working book fyi
personally loved that book.
Thorsson discusses the meanings and magical uses of each rune in detail, backing them with references from Norse pagan texts and Germanic folklore. He does occasionally allude to other esoteric traditions, but this doesn't feel as intrusive as it does in some other books. (My only complaint here is the table of astrological and Tarot correspondences at the end of the book; the runes, in my opinion, should be able to stand on their own as a magical system.)
I would still recommend this book ten years after I first bought it, although Thorsson's language may be too dry and academic for popular readers.
However, Edred Thorsson has a rather dry, dull writing style that does make the good content difficult to follow at times, and it drags.
