Finally published in a single volume, 78 degrees of wisdom is THE book to have on your shelf if you're seriously interested in the tarot. It's probably a bit much for beginners, as her writeups on the card meanings include the history of the card, historical context of its meaning and many other insights of her own, and can be 6 or 7 pages long.

In some places I would have appreciated more guidance on how to apply the card meanings in practice, as it can be difficult to abstract from her comments to the card's location in the story or progression of a reading. Perhaps practice is the key here.

I come back to this book often and always find something useful in it.

This book is a real must-have for anyone interested in the Tarot. Clear explanations of what the cards depict, with reference to specific sources prove invaluable in giving a wider understanding of the major arcana.

I love this book. Excellent description of Tarot in huge detail. A must for any serious Tarot reader, it gives a full chapter of each of the 78 cards and weighs them against each other. It follows the Waite deck describing each card in detail and cross refers them with older non-pictorial pack.

This book takes a bit of getting used to, in Tarot speak. Rachel Pollack investigates the inner psyche and meaning of Tarot, on it's conscious and unconscious levels. A good book for serious tarot lovers.

If you are new to Tarot and buy this book, I recommend you sit with your cards, pull one at a time, and read this authors deep interpretations. This book is a learning curve and makes you think.

The definitive guide for anyone who really wants to learn about the Tarot. Unlike many other books on the market this one goes into great depth about the symbolism each of the Major Arcana represents. Working with this book creates a deep relationship with the cards. A book to return to again and again whether your new to the Tarot or have worked with them for years.

A pleasure to read and packed with interesting details about tarot history and meaning, which can be skipped for those who only want card interpretations. Many sample spreads provided and a beautiful explanation of Kabbalistic and Celtic spreads and meanings. Some interesting ideas around meditations with the cards as a way to deepen understanding and skills.
