Recommends it for: Anyone who likes egyptology or is interested in magic traditions
Recommended to Chriss by: my Egyptology professor at Mesa College in San Diego
This is a really great source book, not just for it’s first-rate information but for the easy-to-follow and read organization of that information. Amulets is also thoughtfully illustrated, with captions for every photo and plate. There are over 70 black-and-white photographs and twenty color plates of groupings of amulets. There are also a couple of line drawings.

My blog has a full review, with pictures.
