5.0 out of 5 stars A handy little book to own., 3 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Only Tarot Book You'll Ever Need: Interpret the Cards That Hold Your Future (Paperback)
I'm not qualified to say if this is the 'best', or indeed (as the title suggests) is the 'only' book you will ever need on Tarot, as I do not own an extensive library on the subject, but it's pretty 'comprehensive' and easy for all to understand - whether you be a beginner or 'old hand' - and if not a beginner, then you probably know all there is to know on the 'basic' subject.

What I like about this book (as a Tarot Reader myself) is that it explains how each Card and image can have whatever meaning basically it conveys to 'you' as an individual - whether you be the actual Reader or 'Quarant. I mean, let's face it; if all the Cards were 'specific' and meant only one of several things - then anyone could Read and nobody would ever need to consult a Tarot Reader for interpretation - or indeed to really study the Deck at all... So, from this perspective - it's pretty good.

As for the lack of detail on Spreads (I think someone else's Review has touched on this oversight) I agree; there isn't much detail here; but then here again; if you're like me, and a true 'individual' you will use your own intuition and imagination, and 'invent' some of your own Spreads! Someone had to invent the first Spreads after all - nobody told them! But in any case; I don't really want anyone telling me how to Read my Tarot Cards - just perhaps to explain a little at other possible/alternative meanings and interpretations from their imagery.

On this basis, I give the book five stars.
