Review:

" It is of note that the methods discussed in this book tend to have a family-relationship focus as opposed to some fortune telling methods that focus on career, power, and money making . . ."

" African methods seem very direct in contrast to more symbolic but more complex systems.? The deck is fascinating and can be used after a minimum amount of study.? To enjoy and use yourself or to give as a gift."

"This book is awesome. It is, in fact, one of the coolest things I've seen in ages. More than just a deck that's a unique divination tool, it's a book filled with a host of new ways to apply your intuition to the future. In addition to five different types of African fortune telling, the book includes chapters on divination itself, Africa and it's cultures and African divination specifically. It's wonderful as both an introduction and guide."
