This book is written in a way that takes you step by step through what runes are, how to make them and what they mean. Highly recommended!!!!
I really liked this little book. It's a quick read, but inspiring. Another reviewer here recommended traditional runes, but I, for one, have always been left a little flat by traditional runes, which are Norse in nature. I'm just not drawn to Norse mythology or systems, but this system is based on Pictish symbols (she claims), much more comfortable for me personally. I'm also quite drawn to 13 stones as a good number for a Witch. I'll just add that I do use tarot as well, but I like to have a variety of tools to choose from.
Aspersions were also cast on some of the authors' claims about Witchcraft...as I recall, the author does not say Witches ARE reincarnated fairies, but that they were THOUGHT TO BE reincarnated fairies. She does say that Witches are born, not made, but I'm not sure I disagree. The further I progress on my path, the more sure I am that I was born to it, and that others called here are born to it as well. I agree that the author makes Witchcraft a little more mystical than it probably needs to be (such as the idea that Witches are born with special psychic powers, when in fact, I believe that all people can probably learn to use their psychic abilities), but she correctly notes that all Witches are not Wiccan.
In any case, I liked this book, and while I plan to slightly change some of the symbols on the stones to fit me personally, the system is a basically sound one, the writing is pretty solid, and making your own runes--whatever system you use--is a good way to make a solid connection with your divinatory tools.
