The best part of this book is the details on the trees to create each wand you want to use. There are so many different materials that go into a magical wand, some simple some complicated. However, the more different the wood or additional pieces to the wand like what I would probably add is gemstones which may power it up, even more, well that is more my opinion. However, I just love this material about wands and what they support. It's also has something to do with the benefit of the plant and you as a partnership, which is pretty cool. Plus, it's so much fun to have an object to use while casting spells or doing any type of magic. Just like Harry Potter or other shows, I feel like the use of a wand just gives you that extended feel and strength to produce spells that work better, since you have an item to force and concentrate your power through.
Therefore, this book is extremely helpful! I never owned anything like it and love all the information about the use of wands and creating one.
