This is actually one of my favorite books. Because many of my clients are Catholic, I often need saints to recommend to them and although I am a frequent visitor to the Catholic websites and I am familiar with many of the more common saints, Illes offers more in depth information which is not limited to the traditional Catholic connections to these spirits. I recommend the book for anyone who enjoys researching some of the more unknown veneration of saints, or even some of the more unknown or fo ...more
This is certainly a good starter point for many saints, including finding specific saints for specific needs. It's heavy on Roman Catholic saints, perhaps not surprisingly. What I would have loved to see is a pronunciation guide for EVERY saint, not just some of the more "exotic" ones, as well as more modern detail, and more emphasis on saints not from Europe.

She is thorough in her introductions and her writing is readable, but the Roman Catholic vocabulary gest in the way for me. Also I was looking for something more contemporary; this is mostly the classic legends of centuries gone by. Still a good introduction to he subject, even if, like me, you're not into the magical aspects.
