In this book (published in 2004), the author relies heavily for his card interpretations on Richard Webster's "Playing Card Divination for Beginners" (published in 2002), but he doesn't do Webster the courtesy of acknowledging him. It seems especially rude given that some of Dee's sentences are almost identical to Webster's.
For example, for the Ace of Clubs:
WEBSTER: "If this card is one of the first three cards dealt in the spread, it is a sign that the client has been blessed with talents that are out of the ordinary. These talents can take him or her a long way."
DEE: "If the Ace of Clubs is found among the first three cards in a spread, it is a sign of extraordinary talent. The questioner is in possession of unique gifts that can take him a long way if he channels them in a productive fashion."
The book is padded out with the Order of the Golden Dawn's astrological correlations for the Tarot's Minor Arcana, transferred here to playing cards. Dee makes a valiant attempt to reconcile the GD's system with Webster's interpretations, but it's a wasted effort in my opinion, since the two systems have nothing to do with each other.
The text for each card includes a rhyming couplet from the 19th century which suggests a meaning for the card. The couplets were created to be used as a parlour game (for example: Ace of Clubs: "He that doth draw the Ace of Clubs/From his wife gets a thousand snubs/But if maids do it obtain/It means that they shall rule and reign"). These couplets are mildly amusing, and I suppose have historical value, but are of no value to someone wanting to learn how to read the cards.
The only reason I can see for anyone wanting this book would be if they were interested in Lenormand decks and Lenormand's 36-card "Master Method" layout, which is gone into extensively.
Frankly, I get the feeling that the impetus for this book was to throw together a playing card book and get it on the market as quickly as possible. If you'd like to read a book written by an author who has spent a great deal of the time with the cards and genuinely has something to say about them, then I recommend "Personal Prophecy" by Deborah Leigh and Elizabeth Rose, or "The Playing Card Oracles" by Ana Cortez. Other good books include the Webster book mentioned above, and Jane Lyle's "The Fortune Teller's Deck."
