While chalk full of information about Norse Mythology, I found the layout of information with the entries to be a little hard to read. Also difficult to look up things specially certain names of beings as the names were often different from the usual or had additional text with them putting them into a different alphabetical category. A large portion of the entries referred to another writer rather than providing actual information about said being then citing the other writer/work.
