Canadian born Eoghan Odinsson is an award winning journalist and author with a lifelong passion for the knowledge of our Northern forefathers - or "folk lore". Literally, the knowledge of our people.
Graduating from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland with his Masters of Science degree, he subsequently taught for the University, and was a dissertation adviser for graduate students.
In addition to his academic background, Eoghan also holds a Black Belt in Chito-Ryu Karate, and has taught Martial Arts in Canada and the USA.
Eoghan has just returned from a 10 year stretch working in the Washington D.C. area, and is now back in his native Ottawa Valley where he lives with his wife, son and three dogs.

This book is well put together, thorough, and does exactly what it advertises- it teaches you about the runes in a succinct and memorable fashion, providing references for all a beginner's basic needs. It even includes a full list of bibliography and a suggested reading list.
I myself found the Hafskjold stav reading system of particular interest- inspired, functional, and unique divination methods are hard to find these days. For that alone, I would recommend this book. However, the entire book was well done.
I recommend The Runes in 9 Minutes for any beginner needing something to start out with, especially if they're hoping to go further than just one book.
