I m about halfway through this book and planning to skim the rest Pennick clearly knows his stuff but the constant interjections about classical high magic Greek, etc are extremely distracting I was hoping for a book solely about Northern traditions and I m not seeing the relationship between the two Will probably skim the rest at a later date.
