Since studying about medicinal herbs, I came across books about
the Celtic religion and the Druids. I find the Druids fasinating. My love of nature and being in the woods really enticed me to read more on these people.
I find the book very intriguing and fasinating. They cared so
much about nature. They respected, worshiped, and did not take
more than what they needed. I read a chapter a day to take it
People could see the title "Druid Magic" and back off just because of the word "magic". After reading the first chapter and
it explained "magic", it's all about you and how you feel about yourself and really building up your self worth, independence,
and self-esteem. For someone with anxiety problems, this was right up my alley.
I find it relaxing to read.
I was, by turns, very interested and very disappointed in this book. The information inside is accurate, intelligent and well-written, but what it lacks is depth and solidity. What I mean by this is that most of the subjects were merely skimmed over and not really explored to their fullest extent. The book was also very "fluffy", by which I mean it was very new age and PC rather than revealing some of the grittier, dirtier truths of the Druid path. Most of the rather abhorrent and barbaric practices of the ancient Druids aren't even touched upon, instead it seems as if they are purposefully ignored. I gave the book three stars because it does have some interesting tidbits of information that can be used by a student. I wouldn't recommend this book as a beginning primer because some of the conecpts require a certain pre-familiarization. I also wouldn't wholly recommend this book to an expert, because they are probably already quite familiar with what the book has to say. I would say this book is perfect for the middle student who has a good grasp of the basics of Celtic wisdom and is ready to go deeper.
