beyond the celtic cross,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyond the Celtic Cross: Secret Techniques for Taking Tarot to an Exciting New Level (Paperback)i found the book an interesting read and enlightening
my one complaint is that the initial explanation about numbering and elements could have been broken down in a more step by step manner to facilitate easier following of the system the author is trying to explain.
he mentions counting often in the first few chapters but a little sketch showing starting point, finishing point would have made my reading experiences a whole lot better.
i feltfrustrated on the first few reading attempts i could have thrown the book in the bin.
i think the author assumes the reader has the same knowledge of this system that brought him to write the book.

I wish I had taken more notice of this review before buying this item. I too, found it a very frustrating read and learned less from it about the card counting technique than I did from the author's website. I have purchased cheaper tarot books which are an invaluable reference and this is not. Its drawn out explanation of a very simple reading is complicated in its approach. It is not clear, without constantly referring back a few pages, what approach the author is now relying upon to analyse the spread in question. Not much in the way of a learning experience for the technique more a rambling of a personal experience he wanted to share.
