This would probably be a higher rated book for people who've taken at least one reiki class. The second half of the book is pretty useless for anyone who hasn't. Lot's of good info though!
Meredith Kendall
pretty good, might use as text for class
Penelope Quest goes through the ins and outs of reiki, attunements, philosophy, and setting up your own practice. I intend to buy this book for my permanent shelf when I become attuned.

That being said, I only gave this book 4 stars. If I could give a further half star I would for the quality of the content as well as the direct approach to reiki. There is little fluff in this book which makes for an almost text book like read for those who are serious about the study and eventual practice of ene
This was a comprehensive and easy to read overview of Reiki. I learned so much and discovered so many additional methods for working with Reiki that I never heard of before! I am planning to read all of Penelope's books! She is very knowledgeable on the subject. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about or practicing Reiki.

This was perhaps a good read to read about the process of being "initiated" as a Reiki professional, but as far as learning how exactly to use / do Reiki without being inititated, it is not so good for that. I am not going to criticize it for such a superficial reason as that, seeing as there was a enough information to digest unbeknown to myself. In fact, it is probably something great to recommend to souls out there who want to be enlightened to this relatively new practice and discipline.
Perfect beginner book for an explanation of Reiki; the book supplies very detailed uses, hand placements, and visualizations. The author tends to give the topic a mysterious/metaphysical view, which is fine, but leaves much unanswered with regard to questions about healing and views from the allopathic medical fields, research, and how to discuss with clients.
I liked this book a lot. It was a good read with interesting information about Reiki. I did not know much about Reiki at all but this book was very to the point and informational. I really like how it gave a well rounded overview of Reiki and wasn't filled with extreme stories of awesomeness.
I really liked this book and would say it is a "must have" for anyone who is a Reiki practitioner. For more:

A very good description of what to expect throughout the whole reiki process--from receiving a reiki treatment to becoming a teacher of reiki. Vey informative!!!
Loved this book! I plan on getting a Reiki attunement as soon as I can afford it! I would love to be able to share this wonderful ability with as many people as possible.
Provides comprehensive information about Reiki.
I absolutely found this book a valuable read. I enjoy Penelope's style of writing....warm, informative, concise, and precise. I am happy I read it!
Well written. Very informative. Good reference book.
