5.0 out of 5 stars Best tarot guide I've ever used! 4 Feb 2013
This is by far my favourite guide to the tarot. It's brilliant. Comprehensive and detailed - a full page or so of descriptions for every card including the minor arcana. I can't praise it enough. There are a lot of duff tarot guides out there which seem to know nothing about tarot and give very specific and negative one or two sentence descriptions for every card - but this is definitely not one of those! I've been using it for years - and I still find it useful when interpretting spreads - giving me a lot of detail to ponder without getting bogged down in flouncy or obscure language. Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finest Tool for Teaching Tarot I have Came Across 23 July 2002
By "firerizing" - Published on
The design of this book in and of itself is partially what makes it so great. No more bindings to snap or break or trying to hold a book open to a page while you examine a card. This is a spiral bound book with the wiring enclosed into the hardbound cover. The sections are tabbed, the cards' images are just lovely. The information, while not extremely thorough is certainly more than many starter books give on each card.
I am so impressed with this book, I recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning tarot, who teaches it or has friends who are interested.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-Made, Too Warm & Fuzzy 25 Dec 2004
By J. W. Kennedy - Published on
This book was made to be useful. Its design is definitely its strong point. Ring-bound so it lies open flat. Thumb tabs for each chapter (though perhaps tabs for each suit would have been even MORE useful.) It has full-color pictures from dozens of different decks, which enables you to see how the same card has been depicted by various artists - something very handy which I have not seen in any other book. Card descriptions are thorough and accurate. You really couldn't go wrong with this book.

The reason I took away a star, though, is this: the interpretations are just a bit too "positive, self-affirming, upbeat" even for the gloomiest cards, like in the suit of swords. It's almost as if the author has intentionally shied away from telling us anything unpleasant or scary ... but sometimes the cards do have grim warnings to give. Also, I incorporate inversions into my readings (if a card appears upside-down in a spread, that changes its meaning) which is a subject Ms Lionnet does not even touch.

So, I give this one 4 stars because it's handy, well-designed, useful ... but not _quite_ complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be a tarot Bible! 13 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on
I've never before read a more thorough, accurate description of tarot cards. Author gives history, etc, but the value in this book lies in its card meanings. Both Major and Minor arcana are discussed. Others "write" books with traditional symbolic card meanings, but this is in-depth, spiritual, path-oriented, and complete. HIGHLY recommended for beginners, as well as those already familiar with tarot. If this book had been published 10 years ago, when my interest in tarot was first piqued, I could have saved myself much confusion and wasted time over the years. This books is a great tool to use for daily and annual readings, as well as your celtic cross and other spreads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes sense when other books do not 5 Sep 2006
By Sandra L. Zarembski - Published on
I often turn to this book when I can't make sense of a spread. It almost inevitably gives me a down-to-earth perspective. I also like that although it offers clarity, it does not give cut-and-dried silly predictions. I've found this sort of thing in other books -- most often in books that come with tarot card decks -- and they never fail to amuse.

The one complaint I do have is that there is apparently nothing offered about reversals. I tended to avoid them in my readings until I got a deck of round cards that would not allow me to do so. Since then, I've always been curious about reversals and have not been entirely satisfied with the wide variety of explanations I've found in books. Too bad this author doesn't offer opinions (if she did in the text prior to the card interpretations, I missed it).
