I can still remember fondly the afternoons when I was ten years old and our teacher would reward good behavior by teaching us math games. One of my favorites was the magical square where the numbers all added up to the same no matter the direction chosen.

They always seemed magical to me. . . .

Now, I discover that they are. The author of this Llewellyn's Practical Magic book takes us on a journey of discovery as we go from one magickal system to another. Talisman Magic is a very down to basics book and I had no trouble understanding his explanations of the various systems. The part that I really enjoyed was the mini history lessons -- like how the I-Ching was created. After explaining the systems, the book goes on and shows us how to draw up a personal yantra to clarify our lives.

I quickly discovered that this book was more enjoyable read in small doses as my mind would begin to bog down on large doses of numbers.

If you are looking for a very basic text on yantra squares, then this is the book for you.
