good for beginners and for reference too.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Step by Step Tarot: The best-selling introduction (Paperback)
This book approaches the subject in an excellent way for beginners, not scaring you off with hocus pocus jargon. A major part of the book is on the heightened meanings of the cards, concentrating just as much on the minor arcana, as the major arcana. With approximately one page per card, it is good for learning the cards, but is easy to use as a quick reference tool as well. Later in the book there is a section on concentrated meanings which gives key words, again helping you to learn the cards. There are also excercises and sample readings for practice. Don't think you have to already have a deck of cards, as the book even includes a section on choosing a deck. All in all the book is easy to read, down to earth, and fun to follow.
