Tarot Tells The Tale, 10 Aug 2010
This book is both informative and well writen. I have recently studied seven or eight books on this subject, and this one seems to be the one I keep coming back to. The only mild criticism is that it could stick to the Rider-Waite deck and employ some more illustrations for the definitions. Others will view this as a great opportunity to experience other decks. But this will in no way hinder readers that are more advanced in their study of Tarot. It is also fair to say that this whole subject hinges on an element of intuition and perhaps this writer speaks specifically to me, but I'd be slightly more inclined to suggest that his insights strike an interesting balance where some other writers tend to slant towards their own variations and stray from the obvious. There is much to be said from having a handful of references to hand for refreshing your Tarot knowledge on the way, but not having this particular book amoung them would be a shame. It's a very clear, concise and thoughtful book. I highly recommend it.
