5.0 out of 5 stars warning: this book will rewire your brain, 22 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tarot Theory and Practice: A Revolutionary Approach to How the Tarot Works (Paperback)
I remember the first time I read Robert M. Pirsig's 'Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance' - how that book affected me like a benign neutron bomb, rewiring my perceptions of the world around me. Ly De Angeles' 'Tarot: Theory and Practice' has done the same thing. Her ideas, concepts and visions of Tarot - 'the God of Time' - reach to the deepest levels of the mind (and the soul).

I don't think there has ever been such a book about Tarot in existence before - and we owe a great debt to the author for taking on a challenge which she had always avoided in the past. It is possibly her masterpiece -brilliant, challenging, wise, affecting, mind altering.

Even those who could not care less about Tarot as a divinatory system, as a conduit for prophecy, would learn a great deal about the universe and its workings from this extraordinary teacher.

Those who do care might be offended or even totally outraged at De Angeles' percieved 'audacities' - taking their cosy 'territory' and opening it up to profound and vivid speculations. This is no 'sweetie wifie' volume or flat earth Orthodox primer. It is fresh, exciting and - a great bonus - highly readable. Ms De Angeles' humanity and compassion is there upon every page.

It is an intense book, and worth taking in relective stages to read. But the journey is perhaps one of the most valuable you could ever make.

What is a 'sweetie wifie' volume? I haven't rated your review, I haven't read the book, but the review intrigues me to buy the book!

A would be reader who is innocent of sweetie wifies!
