One of best books I read. f you want to understand the tradicional Yoruba Religion you will find here good and enough information. In fact he could be more deep but, well, it is good. The book has 2 half. The first is about Beliefs. It is the best. The second is about sacrifices rites. The second half is weaker than the first one. For to be good this half had to be more information and this issue, sacrificial rites is so deep that it would require a lot of more information for to be good. But the book is very good and can be the first one which you read for understand Lukumi, Santeria or Candomble.

FULL OF DIFFICULT TO READ SMALL PRINTS YORUBA VERSES, WAS BARELY ABLE TO READ IT, FULL OF HISTORY BUT NO DETAILS ON YORUBA TRADITION, DIVINATION OR CUSTOMS
I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND SO MUCH EXPECT SOME PRAYERS

Mr Awolalu has produced a book of deceptive simplicity. It contains a thorough explanation of Ifa without the hocus pocus.
