5.0 out of 5 stars First class at any level 9 Mar 2011
By S. Nash
I am relatively new to Tarot and found this book to be a goldmine of practical and theoretical information. The chapters are informative and the exercises are relevant and fun. The approach to the major trumps is oustanding, although as a beginner I found some aspects of the later court cards a bit daunting. Nevertheless this will be a book I shall always be returning to - and using it as the basis for my own journal of discovery. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helps you develop a relationship with each card 13 July 2010
By Queen Red - Published on Amazon.com
A refreshing change from other tarot books I've tried! I really feel myself building a relationship with each card. Tarot 101 is structured to be a self-study course with exercises for each chapter. These exercises teach you to use your own personal frame of reference to interpret cards and tell stories. The exercises are creative, introspective and fun, and I find myself looking forward to working through each chapter. It's not just about memorizing what each card symbolizes (although Huggens provides the traditional card meanings); I also feel like I'm on a spiritual/creative journey. The book is intuitively organized with cards organized by theme instead of suit, which helps the information stick. Easy to follow and full of information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aboslutely great 11 Jan 2011
By Dave Mueller - Published on Amazon.com
I have been interested in Tarot for a while now. I recently purchased the Shadowscape set of cards from this site. The book that comes with it is great, but I needed a little more. This book is just what I needed. I have trouble just memorizing card meanings, this takes it a step further and explains the theory behind the meanings.... making it a very valuable learning aid.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those that want to know more than the basics 12 July 2010
By Christopher H. Merrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Tarot 101 is not your everyday nor normal book on the Tarot. This full home study program leads one into a truly personal approach to the Tarot. Students are able to really make firm understanding on how they feel and relate to all of the Tarot cards. I'm slowly going throught this book and I've found the information extremely helpful in terms of getting me out-side of my box in terms of simple run-of-the-mill tarot card interpretation. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly intelligent and insightful 23 Nov 2013
By Anthony Louis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a longtime student of the cartomantic art, I always enjoy learning something new about the tarot. Unfortunately, many books these days are simply a rehash of the same old material. Not so, this one. The author is quite a good writer and teacher. She is well read and intelligent and leads the reader through a learning process to get familiar with the cards. This book is a beginner's course on tarot (Tarot 101), but it contains valuable information and insights that will be appreciated by the experienced tarot reader. This text represents a job well done and is one of the more enjoyable books I have read about tarot in a long time. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much More Than a Typical Tarot Instruction Book 11 July 2011
By Polly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read a handful of Tarot instruction books in the past and have taken a free online course. Each of these had minor strengths but often left me with a faraway, dazed look in my eyes...leading me to believe learning the Tarot was just too confusing and intense for my brain to process.

Tarot 101 was recommended to me by a friend and I must say it has renewed my enthusiasm and interest, leaving me feeling confident about my ability to learn the Tarot! Kim Huggens provides an engaging, very well-written "workbook" encouraging her readers to tap into the cards immediately while completing lesson exercises that anyone can participate in. The exercises really help individuals identify with each card, regardless of the deck used.

Some of my Internet friends and I have grouped together to study the book and the Tarot in a mock "Internet classroom" of our own within a message forum. This particular book works exceptionally well for this type of setting! It's fun, enlightening, engaging, and helps one to develop further intuition and actual "reading" abilities very quickly.

Compared to the free online course I had taken, Tarot 101: Mastering the Art of Reading the Cards, has been a refreshing change - my eyes don't glaze over with this resource as they did in the online course while going over the exhaustive, pretty-much-boring history and origin of the Tarot. This book provides a hands on, right-from-the-start interaction for those of us who would rather "do" than "be told".
