Format: Paperback
This book is very good for a beginner of Tarot reading.
It focuses a lot on the peripheral issues of the Tarot- personalisation rituals, influences of numerolgy and of course the cards themselves.
Its handy small size means that it's portable and you can store it with your cards. The meanings of the cards are thoroughly explored in a logical manner. The explanations are easy to understand, and it is easy to find information.
The only draw-back is that the Major Arcana cards are set out by card atmosphere. It is difficult to find the major arcana card you need quickly.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The plain cover not withstanding, inside this is a very attractive Tarot book. Small and compact it fits is a handbag and makes a handy reference guide, or something to back to over and over again. Contains everything (just about) you need to know about the tarot with interpretations for all 78 cards. Illustrated with several tarot decks including the Universal Waite, Morgan Greer, Thoth and Golden Dawn Tarots.

Format: Paperback
A good little hand book for reference. It covers all the cards in number order eg. all the three's, all the fours etc. It gives you a history of the cards and several different spreads to use and it uses several different packs of tarot for the illustration. Case studies are listed at the back. Nice and easy to understand, and colourful. I recommend it for everyone, whether learning or experienced. It will have something of interest for you.

Lovely little book. 30 Oct 2000
By Uri Raz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for people who know very little about tarot, and want to get a good first impression of it.
The book is printed in color on good paper, and covers briefly every aspect of it - it's history, uses, types of decks, card meanings, and spreads.
The most attractive feature of this deck is that it features cards from many different decks, allowing the reader to get an impression of a wide variety of decks - something I havent seen in any other book, except in the expensive Encyclopedia of the Tarot which is *much* more expensive.
I love to show this book to people who are not familiar with the tarot just to give them a quick impression of it.
My only reservation is the price - I think it's a little too expensive if it's the only item in an order. I'd recommend ordering it along with something else to spread the shipping fees over a couple of items.

Quite good! 9 Mar 2001
By Annette Hrisko-Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For such a little book, it is loaded with Tarot history and helpful information on the definitions of each card and suit. I especially enjoyed looking at the wide variety of sample cards from various decks. Lionnet also presents several different layouts, besides the usual "Three Card" and "Celtic Cross", that encourage diverse experimentation.
Another helpful item was the collection of "sample readings" at the end of the book. Lionnet applies each layout (i.e. Jungian, dual Options, Celtic Cross, etc...) to a specific Querent and then discusses each card in the spread in relation to the other cards.
A handy book for either the casual or the merely curious, this would make a great gift.

Looking for a deck? Want shortcut interpretations? 29 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is perfect for those who just want to dip into Tarot. It is not for a serious card reader, but it will do to help figure out what each card means. I found it most useful to get a look at the different kinds of Tarot deck designs available, and the various spreads for telling fortunes. Great help if one wants to design one's OWN deck, too!

GREAT FOR BEGINNER 8 Jan 2001
By "themadchater13" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
So, your intrested in starting tarot? This tiny book has loads of information for those who are unfamiliar with the tarot. It tells you all kinds of spreads and gives meanings for the cards. I like this book because it had pictures of the cards from many different decks. This could help a beginner choose which deck looks good to them!

Tarot For All 7 Nov 2012
By ubalu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most appropriate tarot books for a novice. The special features are amazing, with history, types of tarot packs and their specialties, and the many uses other than divination. Each card is described beautifully with color pictures, meanings, and interpretations. While the new curious reader will benefit a lot out of this book, it is loaded with information of depth for a regular tarot practitioner, too.

Very well-presented book.
