Essential for Thoth readers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot: An Authoritative Examination of the World's Most Fascinating and Magical Tarot Cards (Kindle Edition)
I've had the Thoth deck as one of my main working decks for twenty five years or so - I tend to have a selection of of four or five decks I can work with at any one point: the rest of my eighty or so decks are there because I like the artwork but don't feel I could read with them.
I've read the Book of Thoth many times, but have always left it almost as mystified as I was when I started reading it. Common gossip has it that Crowley was off his face when writing the Book of Thoth. What this book does is to explain what was actually meant (even including a few "I haven't a clue about this" remarks. It's basically the Book of Thoth written in accessible language. The Book of Thoth makes a little more sense now, but it's to this book I turn when I want to study a card in depth.
It's notable in that I bought the paperback, but when I got a Kindly I bought the somewhat overpriced Kindle version too.

At least your review was a "verified purchase" which a number of cheerleading reviews obviously weren't!

When I write a review I try to get over the points I'd want to know before hitting "buy". I still think this is the best book on the Thoth - as proven by my purchase of the Kindle (not Kindly: I have diabetes and was overdue an eye test!) version as well. I've been reading Tarot for nearly forty years: this book is good stuff!
