not the best book on runes

listen all the way up to making your own tunes. that's where this falls apart and becomes wiccatru fantasy spellcasting.

Absolute garbage

This book has nothing to do with Nordic Runes in the historic or religious sense. It’s just New Age Mumbo jumbo that the author made up out of nothing and her own feelz, clearly without knowledge of the old Norse ways.

Enjoyable to listen too!

Ok , so I found this book context of this book enjoyable, but here's the the thing when it comes to the runes, tarot or anything of this nature you are going to need a hard copy as well, otherwise the context of this book is going to be useless unless you have a photogenic memory. luckily for me , I have a few good ol' fashion hard cover books on the Elder Futhark "The Runes" So if I may suggest to you. If you are serious in your desire to understand the runes, then like Odin, in your quest of knowledge you must be prepared to sacrafice your eye .... Na, I'm just kidding, if you are serious about learning and understanding the runes, I suggest you get a hard copy of this book as well as a your own personal set of runes.

Not for Children.

The biggest problem with this book is it's a guide. Hence it has a lot of lists and charts that. Make for great booklets but not so much an audiobook. There's actually several chapters in a row dedicated to a list of all the Runes and what they mean.

The second problem is that it's literally a guide to modern Wicca, or as the book says "neo-paganism." This is a mix of surviving cult practices and a deliberate attempt to revive archaic Germanic religion. Yes, these people exist, I've met one. But whether or not all these spells and Rune interpretation works is another matter (it's a bit like Voodoo in that way).

A third minor problem is that if it weren't for the book saying otherwise I would think the book was read by a really good robot reader. She repeats herself a couple times and there's no inflection whatsoever.

To the book's credit it has a consice explanation of Norse mythology and phonetics. Great if you're researching the Norse, but I would not advise you let young and impressionable people near this book.

Lots of history

This book took a long time getting to the runic portion. It covered a lot of Nordic history. the title of the book I felt was very misleading.
