I would recommend this book to beginners and advanced users of tarot such as myself. This is a great book for improving your psychic intuition as it gives you guided visulizations to follow to enhance your ability to summon your intuition at will! It talks about various rituals such as grounding and cleansing the deck, methods of using the tarot. It is very interactive and gives you the ability to actively participate in the book. You can actually write in the book as you follow it through, this is very helpful. It teaches you how to purify your cards with the elements and how to use different spreads and perform indepth readings. It teaches you about healing with crystals and using crystals to record readings. It's an absolutely great read! Another fantastic book to add to my tarot collection. A real hands on gem of a book! Highly Recommended :)

Being a tarot beginner, I bought several books teaching the tarot plus I've got some books that came with the decks too. This is by far the most indepth book I have found. It doesn't only focus on teaching you the meaning of the cards and how to do spreads, it encourages you to go on a real journey of self-discovery and meditation. I like Greer's focus on following your own intuition rather than just using book interpretations.
Personally, I am more attracted to the symbolism in the cards and what it tells me about myself or my situation rather than the divination side of the tarot and Greer's matter of fact kind of approach suits me more than some authors who put great emphasis on ritual and divination. If I would recommend one tarot book, it's definetly this one.

Format: Paperback
It's hard to believe, but before Mary Greer's 'Workbook' the few Tarot books published stuck to a 'here's the card, here's the meaning' format. The publication of 'The Workbook' in 1984 heralded a different approach to Tarot: the use of the cards as a vehicle for personal exploration. The reader is immediately engaged in using the cards and applying the new knowledge to one's self. Isn't that infinitely more appealing than ploughing one's way through a dry text book?!

The workbook covers spreads, charts, active imagination/visualisation, mandalas and rituals. You are encouraged to write in the book and treat it like an exercise book. However, I'd recommend buying a journal of some description to scribble in instead because you'll be referring to this book again and again as you move through your lifelong Tarot journey.

If you're just beginning to explore Tarot as a tool for self-discovery, you'll not be disappointed with this book.

This is a good book with some inspiring ideas and different ways of looking at the Tarot making links with Numerology and astrology, and encouraging to use your intuition to interpret cards and spreads. BUT and this is something that could have easily be put right in the kindle edition that I have, there are a number of basic mistakes in the calculations of year cards. At the beginning of the book there is an example sum that does not add up, the total should be 2035, not 2036 therefore card 10 not 11 and most of the table called Calculating Year Card is out by one from the very beginning as there is a duplication of year numbers in the first section. I only found out after charting my year numbers and ending up with a year card that did not correspond with the year card I had calculated for 2013.
A further criticism is that because this book was devised as a workbook in which you could enter personal information there are lines and spaces throughout which push the formatting out of line. These gaps and lines are totally redundant in this version of the book and could be edited out to make the book easier to read in the e-edition. The consequence of this de-formatting is that sentences get cut up and disconnected, headings get spread across the page or two lines, or even two pages. It would also help in the reading if everything was justified to the left rather than some headings justified to spread across the page. It helps a bit if you hold your tablet in the portrait mode but some editing would improve the layout considerably. Lastly, one of the advantages of an e book is that you can link to websites and other information, unfortunately not all the links work...
It is a shame that these irritating factors are present, it interferes with the serious study this book deserves; as an e book it is not cheap and you would expect better quality of editing than is displayed here.

I'm a beginner, and have no idea about reading tarot cards. After reading the reviews I bought this book, along with the Easy Tarot box set by Josephine Ellershaw.

I started off with M.K Greer's book. The first few chapters were fine, then it started to get really confusing and complicated (maybe even too deep) and think got a little scared - I am a novice after all, and still unsure if I want to pursue the skill so seriously.

If you are really serious about learning the tarot reading skill and want to go into much more depth, then yes, it may be a worth while book to buy.

As for me still being a novice (and if you are, buy Ellershaw's box set, the book is great for getting started - and the cards are of good standard), maybe with time I'll want to improve my skill and take things to the next level.......I'll come back to this book.
