I got this book over 10 years ago when it only cost $3.95. I have no idea what it costs now. I use it primarily for symbols to put on ritual items, talismans, etc. For this, I think this book is great. It is easy to read and easy to use.
In the appendices it shows how to combine runic symbols to get more specific results, it shows what colors correspond to what you desire as an outcome, it shows what runes correspond to the days of the week, it lists the magical properties of certain trees.
I don't know that I would use it as a primary source. But, as an additional or secondary it has proven to be invaluable to me, especially for the price.
