    There are too few books about Yoruba religion Mauge s strength is that he condenses a complex and under represented subject into a short volume His poetic sensibilities also keep this from becoming a dry reel of information The book left me wanting to know , in a good way I incorporated Mauge s insights with other research in my book, Gods of the Flesh, which discusses Yoruba, Voodoo and Palo Mayombe.
