My thoughts on the book:
I love books that are written in great detail, and give us – the reader, who spends their heart-earned money – a lot of value. Sacred Signs and Symbols is one of those books that bring plenty of value for its price, something I have come accustomed to by just about every book published by Llewellyn Publishing.
I will dive into my favorite parts first, which actually is the second half of the book, as it is there, were I found the reasons, why I will be picking up this book again and again. This second half contains a wonderful, detailed, and precise collection of explanations of many signs and symbols in the form of a glossary. Pages upon pages talk about the meaning of the symbols and signs discussed earlier within the book, ranging from Transportation, and colors, to smells and sounds. Like I mentioned, it is for me the meat, the most important part of the book (I apologize to my vegan readers for using this term). It is the one part, I got the most value from.
The first half of the book has its merits too, but it is packaged in a way that resonates less with me. You see, I am someone who enjoys straight forward information in non-fiction books. Sacred Signs and Symbols does contain a lot of that, but it is mixed in with a lot of anecdotes as well. This might be fine for people who learn that way, but it is somewhat a turn off for me, and makes me want to get as quickly as possible through that content in order to move toward the other sections and chapters that are more straight-forward.
But, that fact does not diminish much of the quality of the book, as it only pertains to a personal preference of mine. Without it, I would have given it a five-star rating – because of it, I am giving it 4 Stars.
Sacred Symbols And Signs is a book that deserves a space on your bookshelf or in your Kindle. I am surely happy that I had a chance to read it.
