I have just given a review of The Astrology Workbook by Cordelia Mansall, the same excellent teaching tool is applicable to this book as well.
A Step-by-step Process...
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 20 years ago
I have owned this book for many years. It is VERY thorough and informative and guides you to a good working capability of the tarot, providing much background and ancillary information. It is NOT for people who merely want to play with or amuse themselves with the tarot, it is for SERIOUS students who wish to become highly proficient at the tarot. To this end, its step-by-step methodology gives a solid foundation for successful and enjoyable use of the tarot deck. One drawback is that nowhere among the more complex geometrical spreads is there an indication of in which direction the cards are dignified (upright) or ill-dignified (reversed), and so, one does not know which interpretation to give some of the cards in the spread. Other than that, the SERIOUS tarot student will find a wealth of knowledge throughout the book. April, 2001, Hanley Doc Harding.
brilliant, commonsense book
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 21 years ago
This would have to be the best Tarot manual I have ever seen. It combines a practical, commonsense approach with a LOT of exercises and practical suggestions. The language is always simple, modern and clear and the lack of individual card illustrations means that it can be used with any 78 card deck. Toward the end, there is an introduction to the Kabbalah and meditation and visualization exercises.In regards to other reader's comments, this book DOES suggest starting with the first two cards of the deck (the ace and two of wands) and learning to combine the two cards in a simple reading, before going on to using three cards and so on and so forth, but there are graded spreads for every level. There is no mention of learning all 78 cards before going on to spreads. It may not be the best thing for people who just "want a bit of fun", but it's far and away the best book for people who really want to learn the Tarot.
One of the best text book courses on how to read Tarot Cards
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 23 years ago
I bought this book when it first came out, over ten years ago and I still have it. It's one of the best books you can buy on how to read the Tarot. This one really gives you alot of information, and it also gives you a great step by step plan for learning it on your own and even spaces to draw your very own deck. You also get plenty of wonderful Tarot spreads. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to read the Tarot. It's fun and informative and great for beginners and more advanced students. It feels just like having a private Tarot Tutor.
