I can say that anyone who wants to simply learn runes can make do with just the sites found online, but those who seek to truly understand the runes and develop their own PERSONAL relationship with them really should put the book on their 'to buy' list.

See with the online sites out there I got a good background (what are the runes) and some understanding (in general what they mean) of how each person reads their runes. Tyriel hosts an online community where you can find all of that information for free. Most books will give you the same- the name, maybe some simple associations or link to astrology and the like, but I always found that my own casts were not as clear cut: the translations were always off a bit. It would be like knowing the basics of a language but not fully understanding the semantics behind the words. Simply put they lacked the personal energy that results when we make the runes a part of our life. Then I got the book and rather than a simple formula where you cast runes and look them up like some random slot machine result, the book gives you and understanding of each rune (think of it as semantic background: meaning WITH UNDERSTANDING that you make your own). Now when I cast my runes the feeling is much different and the understanding that comes with each is far greater than it was simply learning what others 'see'.

The difference is that rather than simply clone your understanding into another version of his own, Tyriel gives you what you need to understand runes on your own and in your own way. To use the common metaphor he 'teaches you to fish'. Do I see what Tyriel sees? Not always and THATS the point- it has become personalized so that the understanding is mine.

For the majority of my own personal readings surrounding this subject I had continuously found that most rune books treated the symbolic stones as some sort of questionable and subjective divination - with vague meanings being assigned to each rune, sometimes with a bit of speculative historic support behind where the ideas had originated, but often just ideas constructed in ways that could hold a thousand meanings and yet be utterly meaningless to me. To say the least, I was left unsatisfied by the information on an ancient symbolic system that deserved more than an esoteric, unclear and completely biased explanation. I did not seek to understand the runes through another's singular perspective, I wanted to understand them in such a way that would explain how these symbols unify all persons, how they represent the essentials of the human psyche and spirit, and how they reflected an intricate and fascinating history of the human mind and all the themes that we share as a species.

Tyriel provides just what I was looking for in a concise, clear and very straight-forward book. I am not being told in this book WHAT the runes are but WHO we are and how those symbols represent that which is US. So it is both a personal guide as well as a description of why the runes are an important part of the universe. Through this book my scientific and questioning self was able to connect with my spiritual and magical self and through THAT I gained a greater understanding of what the runes could tell me about my world and all that had come before me, and all that will remain when I'm gone. Tyriel writes with a truly fresh perspective, read this book!!!

Another aspect to add is that Tyriel has already provided vast resources through his website and online community that are FREE for anyone to use.

I am no master in runes and only dabble in them. They are a great part of a spiritual path. I have followed tyriel on his website runesecrets and he has a great community of people that talk about runes and what they are and mean. this is a great book that goes deeper than just a short explanation of what each rune means. ( i do think that the book is over priced for what you get and wished i had waited for the kindle version)

I found Tyriel's perspective interesting in that it seemed to be me to be informed by modern psychology more than the traditional frames put forward by Thorsson and others. I think that a serious study of runes must start with Thorsson, but Tyriel's book is highly accessible (whereas Thorsson, particularly in his earlier work, is difficult) and provides some useful insights.

Format: Paperback
Following a spontaneous urge to reunite with runes after years of neglecting their calling, I did some browsing, stumbled upon this book and bought it immediately. The reason is that I really liked the author's description of runes on his website. Finally I found something that allowed me to make sense of my perception of runes and their energy, and to both make use of the more standard explanations and to go on to create my own system, as the author urges. Brilliant and very careful choice of words, which does make it a bit too easy to glide over certain phrases and concepts without truly paying attention due to the ease of reading, but if you are ready to perceive what the author implies this will not hinder you.
Not recommended for those looking for ready-made answers, but amazing for those who want to grasp not only the essence of individual runes but also their connections and the ways in which they signify the universal energies behind every aspect of our lives.
