Years ago, when I told my brother I was studying the tarot, his first comment was, "How can a deck of cards possibly tell you anything about anything?" Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful resource for beginners 5 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I can't recommend this book highly enough as a resource for beginners and experienced tarot readers alike. The book is very thoughtfully laid out with digestible chapters followed by thought-provoking exercises designed to encourage growth of your tarot reading skills. The book is based on Joan's web site and is available online, but it's still worth having a printed copy...

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is awesome 28 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have been reading tarot cards for several years but like most readers I have a few blind spots: that is, cards that I have trouble understanding. Ms. Bunning has cleared all of these up for me. I have been enjoying her course online for almost a year and I think the book is wonderful. If you check out her website it will be apparent to you that she wrote this book not for the money, but out of love for the Tarot. Highly recommended!

Format:Paperback
I have been reading Tarot Cards for twenty years and have been professional since 1986, however this book is fascinating and an excellent learning tool for beginners. The presentation of the book and the way in which the lessons are set out is very easy to follow. The author provides useful tips throughout the book. Recommended reading for anyone wishing to learn more about Tarot.

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic 8 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Get amazing insights into your readings - the best book on Tarot interpretation I have found so far: recognise patterns in your spread, understand how individual cards relate to and emphasise each other. Also features a great general section about reading your spread, plus an interpretation of each of the 78 cards in depth AND in catchword tables. I found the lack of new age language and phrases very very "nurturing". The book only explains the Celtic Cross Spread (although in minute detail) and it refers to the Rider Waite Deck (and its offspring decks).

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspirational Book 9 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If you are new to tarot i can't tell you how useful this book has been. I have had difficulty in understanding what the cards meant and this book has not only taught me so much about the cards but it has also taught me more about tarot spreads and tuning to your inner guide. It really works and gives you such an insight to tarot cards. Buy it, you will not regret it. The exercises are brilliant too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book for experts or beginners 18 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Joan Bunning has written a clear, concise, understandable guide to the Tarot that has something for everyone, from beginners to experts. The 19 lessons teach everything you need to know about the Tarot, while the exercises give lots of hands-on practice. The keyword charts for the cards are a wonderful quick reference, while the in-depth descriptions of each card include opposing and reinforcing cards and a lengthy description. If you are interested in the Tarot, BUY THIS BOOK. It's the only one you'll ever need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful book. 11 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Wow! This book is amazingly clear and inspiring. The easy, step-by-step lesson format is delightful. The "meanings-at-a-glance" keywords are enormously helpful (your eye usually beelines *right* to the exact keyword you need to see).
Other books give you long-winded essays souped up with every symbol in the known universe. And then they throw in the Archetype of the Kitchen Sink, too, just for good measure.
Such writers mean well, but their books are too often vague and chatty - something like Tarot for Politicians. This book, on the other hand, gives you brilliant discussions that are focused, practical and down-to-earth.
I'm no expert, by the way. But I've read plenty of books on Tarot, some of them very good (I'm thinking here of Pollack). This one, however, is quite simply the best of them all. You can't go wrong with this selection.
