About this deal

I really enjoyed reading about different magical herbs, astral magic, and protective objects from around the globe. After 63 novels and a slew of short stories, omnibuses, audio dramas, and more – this is the End and the Death. If you too are wondering where your magical studies should go, I strongly encourage you to pick up a copy of this book. Sophie Page is well known in the history community for her extraordinary books on magic and witchcraft, particularly European medieval magic and astrology. While their bodies are frozen, their minds, still active and awake, are uploaded into a massive quantum computer.

Confirmation of your place on your chosen course will follow later as long as the course recruits enough students to run. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones. Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. Thank you very much for the terrific review, sweet Willow (I am with you 100% regarding misappropriation/misuse of the word gypsy). However, the Western idea of magic doesn’t exist in a lot of different cultures and representing it in a Magic book would be disrespectful of these cultures, and not respectful.I was hoping for a book that would bring the subject matter to life with captivating storytelling, but instead, I found it to be a dry and uninspiring read.

In fact, one of my favorite books growing up was their herbal remedies book, which I tracked down as an adult. There are a lot of excellent photographs and good use is made of box text diving into specific practices and practitioners that needed a bit more coverage. While, of course, this is not a deep dive into any particular topic, the breadth of this work is quite stunning. The book also has a four-page glossary and an extensive index to help you find just the piece of information that you want to find.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.A bit more depth in some areas would have been an improvement but it gives a basic introduction to many areas that could lead to more in depth study elsewhere. Highly recommend it if you are into this topic, or even to see where some of your fav fantasy books takes inspiration from. Evie Porter has everything a nice, Southern girl could want: a perfect, doting boyfriend, a house with a white picket fence and a garden, a fancy group of friends. Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive.

As with most DK books, this book is full of images, many of which I've seen before but others that were completely new to me. Explore the presence of witchcraft in literature from Shakespeare’s Macbeth to the Harry Potter series, and the ways in which magic has interacted with religion. It also serves to show that magic and occultism has existed across cultures since (literally) the beginning of time — with or without the influence of other cultures.I know this was likely unintentional and much of the world does not see this word as a slur, but I was disappointed nonetheless considering the context the word was used in. Still, if there is an oral tradition, I am unaware of with some of this that could be accounted for. The book is very centered on European and Asian magic and witchcraft that we know about from archeological finds and written history. In spite of its battlefield specificity, The Art of War has found new life in the modern age, with leaders in fields as wide and far-reaching as world politics, human psychology, and corporate strategy finding valuable insight in its timeworn words.
