It also has a list of all the questions you'll ever want to ask in your next tarot reading and this alone is worth the price of the book.
Drawing upon real life readings, it is filled with interesting and often humorous examples of what happens during a reading. It also provides useful tips on becoming professional, cleansing your workplace and a set of guidelines for practising Tarot readers.
The chapter 'Stranger Than Fiction' had me laughing out loud as I could relate to some of the bizarre readings detailed there.
Some of the things about the book that are interesting are the examples he gives about situations he has been in, if you have never read for people before this can be useful. It can also be overwhelming. The types of people you will get as a Tarot reader are so varied; you would be writing forever if you attempted to suggest every possible client or scenario, Paul does however give some good situational examples. He also gives some interesting spreads and card combinations.
I have been reading Tarot Cards for over 5 years. I know that is not as long as the author and I do not claim to know everything but I found that a lot of things in this book do not go down well with me or my training. I was trained by an amazing Tarot Professional Gail. In her training she teaches that you should never suggest a physical death to a client, friend or anyone for that matter. To even suggest such a thing can plant a very powerful idea in a person's subconscious. The most you should ever do even if it looks very obvious in the cards is to suggest the person seeks medical attention. In more than one place in this book, Paul suggests that if there are enough of a certain card then if means physical death.
Paul also reads reversals. I personally do not do this. Some people do and it works well for them.Read more ›
