Each of the sixteen Odu has sixteen verses of the literary corpus in both Ile-Ife Yoruba with English translation. Of the 256 Odu we offer the 16 Major Odu with the remaining 240 minor Odu offered for a later publication.

Each of the sixteen Odu has sixteen verses of the literary corpus in both Ile-Ife Yoruba with English translation. There has been some influence of one dialect over another, especially when the Oyo dialect seems to be considered the official Yoruba and that of Ifa. The major difference between the Odu in Ile-Ife and elsewhere is lies in the chronology of the Odu. In all cases Eji-Ogbe starts the corpus and, Orangun Meji ends the corpus.

Reviews about The Sixteen (16) Major Odu Ifa From Ile-Ife (2):
Grosho
It has 16 verses for each odu. Unfortunately it has no translation and mainly only short explanation for each verse. You have to do the translation for your self but the tonal acentuation was not made....

I think he put only a short version of each verse, therefore the book could be a lot better but I think it is OK for you BUY. Better than nothing. :-(
Anazan
Well, after receiving this book, I must agree with the other review. It is better than nothing. I am not sure if I would recommend it to a serious long time student of Ifa. There are no tonal accentuations and the verses have only a short simple translation. If this book was half the price I might say "buy it". It is the only game in town, which sort of makes it worth owning. I think a much better job could and should have been done. What the hey, I own it now....
