I just recently got this book back from my mom. I loaned it a year or so ago to her.

It's tough finding a book that is good for someone who is curious about ATR practices, but needs a bit more than just the usual history lesson of where it came from and all of that.

The author does a great job of simplifying things without making it TOO basic...

If you're already involved in the religion, there isn't much you're going to get out of this book, aside from the usual warm-and-fuzzies if experiences men
Correal's easy prose is a great book for non-initiates to Ifa. Correal provides a concise summary of Ifa, the Orisa, the importance of ancestors, and how to set up an ancestral shrine. I've used it as reference guide consistently over the years.
Tobe really captures some of my own practices and views experienced while practicing my religion. She also explains a few of the essential Patakis/Stories that make the base of our spiritual beliefs. A must read for Orisa initiates.

As a beginning student, I found this book quite informative and well written. I learned a great deal and will probably re-read soon :)

I found this to be a highly educational book. Helping to clarify some things about the spiritual journey the followers of Orisa undertake.
A must read for any devotee of an Orisha tradition and a good starter book for anyone who wants to learn about these traditions. The book is a good, in depth look at the theology and ethics of the Orisha traditions.
This is a very refreshing take on the factors that go into making a decision to pursue a spiritual path, Orisa or otherwise. I am grateful to the author and her spirit guides!
great book i think
