“The Book of Stones is filled with information and with beauty!”
—Melody, author of Love Is in the Earth
“Each description is an intimate conversation between the Wisdom of the Stones and the deep soul Wisdom of the two authors.”
—Robert Sardello, PhD, author of Love and the World and Silence
“This beautiful and unusual work opened a new and unknown world to me, right under my feet—a realm of qualities and possibilities of which I had known nothing and for which I am the richer.”
—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, The Biology of Transcendence, and The Death of Religion and the Rebirth of the Spirit
“The Book of Stones has elevated the spiritual knowledge of crystals into a higher form. The classification of each stone is impeccable, along with wonderful photos—creating an intimate connection with a wide variety of minerals. This book offers us all an opportunity to sharpen our skills and renew our interest in the crystal healing world.”
—JaneAnn Dow, author of Crystal Journey: Travel Guide for the New Shaman

“The Book of Stones takes the reader on a fascinating journey. The writing is clear, thoughtful, and easily understood, and the inclusion of scientific data, history, and folklore helps make the book a valuable resource for all those interested in the mineral kingdom.”

The revision is good and the additional stones are nice. It is a good starting point for someone interested in working with crystal energies. However, it should not be your only source.
There are two main problems with this book. First and foremost, Robert Simmons trademarks many stones. Just because you meditate with a stone doesn't give you the right to trademark it. To me, it's like trade marking a natural occurring lake or an ocean. It is just not right.
Secondly, I feel his descriptions are little embellished. Don't get me wrong, Mr. Simmons is a good writer. For example, he tells you 4 pages worth of material about his Moldavite experience. If the Moldavite doesn't resonate with you, you will be disappointed. This was my experience. Never the less, it was good for my collection. In fact, my experiences are different with quite a few of his descriptions. That is ok. Naisha Ahsian's descriptions resonated with me more and were a pleasant addition in the first book. I was a little disappointed with the lack of her comments on the additional stones. In any case, the buyer should be aware. I believe Mr. Simmons encourages others to create their own experiences with the stones in the introduction. But if you are like most new people in the metaphysical community, it is believed to be a "tried and true" reference material. I recommend you take the time to read the intro before looking further.
Instead, if I want to reference something now, I may have to search in three books to find it. It is incomprehensible to me that many of the stones I own are no longer featured in the revised edition. If they were important enough to include to begin with, then what makes them insignificant all of a sudden? Or is this a ploy to have us buy all three books if we want our information to be comprehensive? Senseless and annoying.
Also - really? They STILL couldn't get it together to include a regular index? For example, fuschite is nowhere to be found... oh, wait. It's called "ruby fuschite". Well, if I had an index, I could look up fuschite and be directed to the correct page. As it is, I could look through every name of every stone featured in the book and see if there is anything containing fuschite. Then I may find it. Or not. Because fuschite is not in the first book, for instance. Ruby or otherwise.
Also beyond my powers of understanding - jasper. Six varieties are sub-headed under it. Ocean jasper is not one of them. It is listed under "O". Same for spider jasper. Under "S". Or it would be / was - because it is now apparently no longer relevant. If these are different from the other jaspers, fine. But if you had an index, you could at least find them under jasper in there. Anyhow. It would have been good to have a non-meditating (or at least not actively meditating whilst working), anal editor on this.
