5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, detailed, user friendly, 9 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Crowley Tarot: The Handbook to the Cards (Paperback)
There are a lot of interesting books on the Tarot out there, and I have some of them myself. However this is the book I really needed back in the mid-70's when I started out. Whilst this can be recommended to those coming to the Tarot, especially the Crowley-Frieda Harris deck, for the first time, there is enough depth psychology and Jungian thinking here, to be of value to more experienced readers. This is far and away the most balanced, yet detailed, direct, yet subtle exegesis of the Crowley-Harris pack that I have come across. There are works out there that are more detailed with regard to the totality of the symbolism, that deal with the Qabalistic aspects of the Tarot, the Golden Dawn attributions etc. However with at least one of these, by the time I had waded through lengthy preambles, historical and biographical data etc., I'd almost lost the will to live. This book delivers on all the important levels, not least a number of useful spreads and some well-thought out observations on how to approach the use of the cards. I cannot recommend this book too highly.
