Read full description of the books:
This book is the compiled curriculum for new members of the Rune Gild, an organization that Thorsson had been running for a few years at the time of publication, and which is still active today. It is not a book one can just read and “know,” it is a structured work plan that takes many months or even years to complete. Really, as a curriculum, it is likely to be more effective for someone who works in the context of a school like the Rune Gild, or at least in combination/contact with other like-minded students of varying levels of accomplishment.
The training one gets with this book is how to work with the runes and more generally with Norse-inspired magic, as interpreted through the particular lens of Thorsson’s own work. Thorsson describes his approach as “Odian,” rather than “Odinist,” with “Odinists” being worshippers of the god Odin and by extension the other Norse gods, while an Odian aspires towards self-deification using Odin and the Norse pantheon as models or goals to attain. This puts Thorsson’s approach somewhat outside of the mainstream of neo-pagan or “heathen” religion, and even makes it somewhat “dark” or dangerous in that context. Self-deification is most frequently associated with “Left Hand Path” or Satanic groups, although anyone who reads this expecting a Nordic version of the Satanic Bible is sure to be disappointed.
I do think that this book will have some value outside of its original intent, however, in serving as a very well-defined curriculum of work in magical training. Others looking to construct that kind of training in occult or magical systems might be able to glean definite guidance by referring to it.
