This book validates things that I already knew and it shed more light on issues regarding benefits of IFA, speculations, misconceptions and taboos and the common similarities and differences among the IFA practice all around the world. Most importantly, the book touched on early Yoruba life, Ifa teachings, education, humanity, ceremonies, rituals, dates and numbers.
I will recommend this book "Ifa Will Mend Our Broken World" to all IFA scholars and to those who seek to know about Yoruba culture and traditions.
