Found this book many years ago at a used book store in NYC. A great guide to the world of Tarot. Fascinating and interesting if you want to learn about Tarot or brush up your knowledge. A good read for anyone interested in the magical world of Tarot. ( )

Found this to be much like Eden Grey's other book 'Tarot Revealed', both are useful in building up a general knowledge of 'classical' tarot definitions, especially when using the 'Rider Waite Deck' featured.

However this can become limiting if taken too literally. I prefer to take these kinds of definitions with a pinch of salt, relying more on a mixture of intuition, synchronicity, and personal symbolism to guide my readings. A good introduction to this other non-dogmatic way of working with the Tarot, [along with other methods of divination] can be found in 'Positive Magic' by Marion Weinstein. ( )

This is one of several books I read back when I was learning to read tarot. I don't remember many of the specifics, but I do think of it as being a good book. ( )
