PDF I've owned this book for a while as I bought it when I began researching Germanic/Norse mythology and history for a novel I'm working on. I didn't expect it to be very helpful so it took me a while to get around to it.

I was pleasantly surprised at how helpful this book was.

Although geared towards practitioners of runecraft and having a mainly religious bent, the book has a lot of useful tidbits about the runes with some history, especially as relates to the Norse prose and poetry where the runes are mentioned. It's a good starting point for investigating Norse literature, which can be daunting for a beginner.

After reading it all the way through, I've gone back and read over the rune descriptions several times since and still find it useful, even if only from my 'limited', mostly objective perspective.

I freely admit to being mainly interested in runecraft as an outsider, but did learn a lot by reading the book.

The Kindle version is almost as expensive as the paperback, so I opted to buy the physical book instead. Love the cover.
