2.0 out of 5 stars A Dissapointing Book, 15 Nov. 2013
I was really excited to receive this book, but thats where the excitement ended unfortunately ! With his OTO grade knowledge I was expecting big things but at £20 this book didnt deliver. It all starts off well enough with a good description of the rose cross and the background to Crowleys Thoth deck (The Aeon of Horus & Book of the Law). However, its when it comes onto a descrition of the cards that the book falls flat. His desciptions of the cards are so brief it really dosent make the book worhtwhile. All he does is quote Crowley and add a few off the cuff anecdotes. He makes no attempt at all to cover the immense symbology which the Thoth deck contains. This would seem to indicate he has made few realisations about the deck for himself.. and if the OTO parted with this information, he certainly isnt forwarding it onto the reader in any way. I really dont see why he has written this book. The Thoth Companion: The Key to the True Symbolic Meaning of the Thoth Tarot by Michael Osiris Snuffin (30 Nov 2007) is a much better book and costs alot less.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astrology Decoded Review, 25 Oct. 2013
This is the best book on astrology I have read and the first book I have given 5 stars to. It is a step by step guide to being able to interpret a birthchart in some depth. It builds your confidence by gradually introducing the building blocks and working from there. What i particularly liked was rather than devoting endless pages to all combinations of planets in signs, houses and aspects, it gives you a few thorough worked examples so you can work these relationships out for yourself. It also goes through 2 example charts in the process as well as worked exercises throughout the book. Perhaps a hardback copy with some colour photos would have gone down well but then there would be the extra cost in that. Altogether a fantastic book for beginners and intermediate astrologers.

1.0 out of 5 stars New Age Tarot review, 3 Oct. 2013
Im Afraid I really didnt like this book. The Thoth deck is a very unique deck with lots of details & symbols. These symbols, and even the colours of the cards were all there for a specific reason with lots of depth behind them based on astrology & Qabalah. The author of this book has basically re written the meanings to 'dumb everything down '. I guess he is honest in saying he has re interpreted the deck but its grossly misleading for anyone using this book as a means of exploring the Thoth deck in anything like it was intended to be used.. Ive consigned this book to recycling.
