This review is from: Curse Tablets and Binding Spells from the Ancient World (Paperback)
I did like this book. The information, once you found it was interesting and helpful (I used this book for research on a screeplay) and some of the ideas were very useful. However, the book is SO chatty that you just wanted the author to shut up and get to the point. In chapter 7, the long winded preamble made me think the author liked hearing his own 'voice'. This book is worth buying, just be prepared that it could easily have been half its length and still contain all its useful information.
