This is a well thought out book with plenty of ideas & information its been well written. The lady who write the book has a scene of humor and gets over what she is trying to convey to the student very easly. 5 star rating for me.
People will find this a very useful book on Tarot Spreads - particularly those who know little about them or have a limited knowledge of Spreads in their history. It's a largish book and good quality with diagrams of each Spread - and a description of the Card Placings.
Barbara concentrates a lot on the meaning as to why perhaps certain Cards are placed in a certain way - and what they mean in connection to each other, which is very good, because most of us tend to use Spreads, and Read all the Cards independently - and then perhaps as a `whole' picture - but seldom focus on what way a Card may actually relate to another within a Spread - or why, and so I found this very useful. One or two might find that part a bit `deep' if they tend to just do a quick Spread and quick Reading, but if you want to `understand' more about the meaning or design of a particular Spread, then this will be the book for you!
