This review is from: Tarot and the Journey of the Hero (Paperback)
I am amazed that this guy makes a living selling Tarot Books. Avoid, it is misleading at best. I would suggest reading Don Milo Duquette to get an understanding of the Tarot Journey.

I have not read the book myself but please do check out the comments on amazon.com - this is a book which gets five stars from the reviewers. This book is now on my list to buy as a result of the reviews I read there.

Many tarot authors believe that some Jungian philosphical interpretation of the Tarot is the key to their hidden meaning, the 'pinnacle' of Tarot knowledge, the journey of the self, the journey of the fool. They are wrong and they mislead many other people, perhaps those only knowing the divinatory meanings of the Tarot, into thinking the same. The Tarot is a tool for spiritual enlightenment, as described wonderfully, but ever so cryptically, by Aleister Crowley. Reading Crowley's Book of Thoth with Du Quette's 'Understanding Alesiter Crowley's Thoth tarot', really will open you to the full potential of the Tarot. I cannot recommend this book at all.

Just a pointer here for people looking for the excellent book you suggest. It is actually: Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot: An Authoritative Examination of the World's Most Fascinating and Magical Tarot Cards by Lon Milo DuQuette. I agree, it is the book to go for, along with Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey by Sallie Nichols.
