Good book for novice and professional
on 5 July 2015
If you're learning tarot you may want something closer to a tutorial guide than this book. However the best use of this instructional book is for reference. It's laid out very well with clear examples of spreads and readings. Also included is a full run down of the 78 cards including reversed meanings and meanings of court cards if they relate to a separate person.
It offers a good level of detail that I should imagine both beginner and professional can make use of. I have found myself referencing it quite a bit while studying the cards. One criticism I have of it is the explanations of card meanings can be a bit too jarring for my liking (perhaps a bit too pessimistic for more negative card meanings). To make it even better it could have done with more reading examples using a variety of spreads. However as it is I would recommend it to all tarot readers. If you're completely new to tarot a better book would be "Learning The Tarot" as it's set out like lessons and well researched and written.
