This little book is for anyone searching for a simple, yet meaningful reference book on interpreting the cards in the Waite Tarot deck. Where other authors typically use superficial interpretations for each card, Alan Oken touches upon the symbolism in each card and moves beyond mediocrity to unveil the deeper spiritual/psychological meaning inherent in the tarot system. For the more advanced readers, he includes esoteric and exoteric wisdom for each card. This is a must book for anyone interested in tarot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Book Packs A Punch! 23 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Though I have many books on the Tarot, this little book intrigued me. I had picked it up originally thinking that it was so small it would come in handy as a travel companion for one of those 'when in doubt' readings... Then upon actually reading it - Wow! ~ Packed with so much information, even the intermediate and advance Tarot Reader can value it's information. Traditional meanings, Esoteric meanings as well as Mundane. How they can apply in a reading, as well as pointing out a large amount of symbolism, particularly in the Major Arcana. I was (and still am) simply impressed with this little book. A little book that packs a punch! Save yourself some money on the big names and invest in this little book at a small price and I doubt you'll ever regreat it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and straight forward. 6 Sep 2003
By GGuerard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I picked this little book up at a local bookstore after reading through quite a few on the shelf. I think this is the best bet for the money--simple and to the point. A great first book and intro to the art of Tarot. My first use of the cards with this book was very helpful! Be creative with your intuition and the information available in this book and you may find the key which is hidden in your subconscious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginner's Tarot 1 Sep 2001
By Jesse B Ellyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the ultimate book for the beginner. It is short and to the point and it is right on target. In so few pages this book is packed with great information. All you need to know to get started is right here. First there is the history of Tarot. Alan Oken takes you all the way back to the beginnings of the cards and brings you through the many transformations over the years. Next he takes you through the deck card by card. Each card is explained. The meanings are made clear. If you are interested in Tarot this is the book for you.

By DIY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sometimes some of the best things come in small packages, that holds true for this book. This book is a concise interpretation of Rider Waite Tarot cards. Any time I give a deck of these cards to someone, I make sure I give them this book as well.
