    I really enjoyed this book for several reasons First I feel it was genuinely different than most generic and frankly unhelpful shamanism or Paganism related books It is also has a distinct feeling of being Germanic in tradition without being boxed in by the dogma of any one religious group The authors' personal narratives at the beginning of most sections are insightful and offer uniue interpretations on each topic and the tone throughout the book is instructive but warmI really have only two complaints about the book The first is that I found the Green World chapter to be hard to get through I have no clue why Maybe it was just me having a bad day but I found it cumbersome despite my love for plants The main complaint I have was the final section covered in the book regarding working with the dead I was so excited when I realized this section was going to be covered that I intentionally saved it for last as a treat What I found when I read it was a fairly short and what felt to be underdeveloped chapter when compared to others If I were to give a suggestion to the authors for future editions it would be to flesh out that section a bit I would recommend this book to individuals interested in a practical introductory book on Norse and Germanic inspired shamanic practice I think it's important to note that readers should take this book for what it is a suggestion on modern practice of neolithic inspired shamanism It is not a history book is not full of academic sources and it is not a grimmoire of ancient spells written on tanned 1000 year old auroch hide by members of the Disir to whom you are directly related If that bothers you I suggest going elsewhere

    An interesting discussion of modern practices in Northern Culture shamanism The descriptions in the exercises are generally great though some of the complex ones would have benefited from the inclusion of diagrams Best for someone who is already deep into a pagan lifestyle as some parts of the book reuire knowledge or belief that are not necessarily common place

    Good

    This book is an excellent introduction to the techniues and indeed the lifestyle of the Northern derived spirit workers It covers a great deal of ground touching on a broad base of spirits and beings but it suffers just a little by being so scattered The broadness means that some sections will have little relevance to some readers and that the relevant sections will be insufficient but that's an inevitable conseuence of trying to be so very accessible to a wide range of people

    Insightful book on Norse tradition shamanism being a Teutonic Wiccan I was looking to add to my knowledge and experiences in the esoteric It is a bit different from my current path but so worth the read and experience
