Have read and re-read many sections, especially the Rosary meditations. It is an older book and does not have meditations on the Luminous Mysteries.

Hands down the best book on the history of this devotion! All kinds of scriptural references and interesting historical and theological insights on the rosary and its mysteries. If you read only one book about the rosary, make it this one!

A detailed description of the practice of the rosary. It goes in depth describing the origin of each prayer, also giving you the latin version of the prayer. All mysteries but the new "luminous" mysteries are described and explored.
