3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By S. Nash on 9 Mar. 2011
Format: Paperback
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!

Really good book as it actually exercises to work through, changes your view and teaches you lots of information about readings and how to view the cards. Really good for beginners or those with some experience wanting to learn more.

Helps you develop a relationship with each card 13 July 2010
By Queen Red - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Aboslutely great 11 Jan. 2011
By Dave Mueller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Awesome! Brilliant! 1 April 2013
By Auriel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For those new to the world of Tarot - this is the book!
(It's even great for those that have been doing tarot for a while.)

It takes you through both a learrning of the cards and a self-development process that makes understanding the cards easy and fun.
I highly suggest and recommend the exercises in brainstorming each card - I took each element on a card, and did a full on brainstorming, word/idea association chart, then tied all the elements together.

This technique presented worlds of meaning to each card. Fantastic!
I have been doing Tarot for over twenty years now, and I found this book a breath of inspiriation.
