This book by Joan Bunning is an excellent tool for beginners to get up and running with interpreting what the cards mean. If you have never used tarot before but are thinking about starting, i strongly suggest that you get this book along with a deck of rider waite tarot cards. Joan provides an example of a previous reading she had done for a client, and it was amazing to see how the cards had changed over a period of time. Thoroughly recommended..

Get amazing insights into your readings - the best book on Tarot interpretation I have found so far: recognise patterns in your spread, understand how individual cards relate to and emphasise each other. Also features a great general section about reading your spread, plus an interpretation of each of the 78 cards in depth AND in catchword tables. I found the lack of new age language and phrases very very "nurturing". The book only explains the Celtic Cross Spread (although in minute detail) and it refers to the Rider Waite Deck (and its offspring decks).

Wow! This book is amazingly clear and inspiring. The easy, step-by-step lesson format is delightful. The "meanings-at-a-glance" keywords are enormously helpful (your eye usually beelines *right* to the exact keyword you need to see).
Other books give you long-winded essays souped up with every symbol in the known universe. And then they throw in the Archetype of the Kitchen Sink, too, just for good measure.
Such writers mean well, but their books are too often vague and chatty - something like Tarot for Politicians. This book, on the other hand, gives you brilliant discussions that are focused, practical and down-to-earth.
I'm no expert, by the way. But I've read plenty of books on Tarot, some of them very good (I'm thinking here of Pollack). This one, however, is quite simply the best of them all. You can't go wrong with this selection.

Massive in depth book for learning tarot. This is everything you could learn in a class.
The best book I've seen
From introduction to tarot and basics > daily readings> asking questions> card spreads
THIS BOOK HAS IT ALL!
Alo interpreting cards>card pairing>card positions>reversed cards> card exercises

I have been reading tarot cards for several years but like most readers I have a few blind spots: that is, cards that I have trouble understanding. Ms. Bunning has cleared all of these up for me. I have been enjoying her course online for almost a year and I think the book is wonderful. If you check out her website it will be apparent to you that she wrote this book not for the money, but out of love for the Tarot. Highly recommended!

I can't recommend this book highly enough as a resource for beginners and experienced tarot readers alike. The book is very thoughtfully laid out with digestible chapters followed by thought-provoking exercises designed to encourage growth of your tarot reading skills. The book is based on Joan's web site and is available online, but it's still worth having a printed copy...

I have been reading Tarot Cards for twenty years and have been professional since 1986, however this book is fascinating and an excellent learning tool for beginners. The presentation of the book and the way in which the lessons are set out is very easy to follow. The author provides useful tips throughout the book. Recommended reading for anyone wishing to learn more about Tarot.

Such an excellent book.

Joan Bunning is clear and concise. Her step-by-step approach is manageable in bite sized chunks and easy to follow. I would recommend this book to those who are interested in understanding how they themselves may relate to the Tarot.

Bunning does have a website with all the information in the book free however I thought a.) I'd like to have this in paperback for my collection and b.) I'd like to pay the author for her work - even if it is free, out of respect for the author!

I really need to knuckle down and focus on reading and practicing more!
