Mr. Mountfort puts forth a scholarly study of Ogam including history of, his interpretation of, making of, and casting of Ogams.
What struck me the most about this book was his painstaking effort to link for us the individual meanings to thier corresponding myths. Along with this he also at no time gets bogged down in the dogma of right and wrong when it comes to interpretations and makes it clear that the study of Ogam is an ongoing evolution and today's reality may very likely change as time progresses. What is important is that IT WORKS!
Lastly, he takes us through the recent revival of Ogam and gives us his views on modern publications pertaining to Ogam.
All in all, an interesting informative read.
This is a bare bones book and i was so pleased to see that within the first few pages he writes in a very straightforward manner about said history.
There is not a great deal of unneeded information to wade through and his honest writing style is pleasingly refreshing and easy to connect with.
The book itself is truly one of the most informative i have read thus far , and i was pleased to see that within its pages were very detailed descriptions and historical information about each individual Ogam . the back contains sample layouts for the student to use and he provides beautifully written examples of how each ogam relates to energies we encounter in daily life. As i am an artist and make and design Ogam staves i was very pleased to offer this book as a primer and guide to clients ordering my work . they have since related their feelings regarding this book and all were positive .
