I can only speak for myself, but being a fan of religious studies. I absolutely loved this book when I read it, and it still is a favorite of mine. I love books that have over one line of study in them. This is like that. It covers many topics, and I learned a lot from it.

From Native American religious beliefs to Tibet and even Egypt, this book really covers a vast array of topics within the beliefs of different cultural beliefs and religions.

This is a short review. It was one I wanted to do, but it was difficult to cover everything within its pages. I recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about different religions, or why certain religions do certain things. It goes into the history of specific rituals, rites, and or celebratory events.

Beautifully illustrated as well on top of all else this book gave me..
