This book provides insight to beginners on Tarot card reading and is easy to understand.

I do have other Tarot books that are more intense and in depth, but this is an all around good reference and has become one of my favorites.

She tells me that the book is very thorough and detailed in describing the different cards and the meanings and symbolism.

Format: Paperback
"Explore. Engage your curiosity. Use your imagination. Keep an open mind and an open heart. The Tarot isn't just for answering everyday questions or telling fortunes; it is a beacon that shines light into the darkest recesses of your inner self and illuminates the vast realms that lie beyond the limits of the conscious mind." - From The Only Tarot Book You'll Ever Need

Written by New Age author Skye Alexander, The Only Tarot Book You'll Ever Need presents Tarot fundamentals in an engaging, immensely readable format. From suit explanations to numerology, color symbolism to court cards, this 184-page soft cover book published by Adams Media (2008) serves as an excellent introduction to Tarot.

The Only Tarot Book You'll Ever Need contains material adopted and abridged from The Everything® Tarot Book (2nd Edition 2006), also written by the author, providing the core tenets from that book delivered with tighter writing and a more accessible layout.

Here are some of the topics admirably covered by Ms.

I've been using this book for a while, and just bought the Kindle version to have it on my iPad since I am living la vie mobíle these days. The book covers all the cards and has some decent insight and covers reverse position, which combined with being concise and relatable, is why it's my carry everywhere tarot book (I have over 30 books in my tarot collection). That said, it tends to lean towards the positive, in fact there is almost nothing negative written in this book, which might be a little too candy coated for some folks. But if you want something fairly comprehensive, and portable, this is the best I've found thus far.

This was one of the first books I ordered to re learn the Tarot. This book is small ,fits nicely in your hand and packs a big punch! Don't be fooled by it's size!! It has it all!! So basic but yet so very very complete! If you are just learning I recommend getting the Rider deck and this book and head out to your favorite reading spot with a cup of your favorite drink and enjoy!!

This text lists the minor arcana according to value rather than suit. As such, it is quite easy to get a quick reference to a card's general interpretation. Also, the author is very easy to read. The card's interpretations are often more negative than I have read from other authors, but I enjoy having this volume to use alongside others. In that respect, it might not be the "only one you'll ever need!"

My interest in the tarot is not as geared toward directly using it for divination purposes, but rather a general interest in the artwork and symbolism involved. For my purposes, this was a good resource. It gives detailed explanations of each card, common symbols used, and extensive lists of interpretations of those symbols. I was impressed with this alone, as many of the books on the tarot I've picked up gave very detailed descriptions and interpretations of the Major Arcana/Trumps, but much less information regarding the Minor Arcana/Suits. In addition to the detailed explanations of each card, it includes a breakdown of the significance of the suits and numbers themselves.

I feel that perhaps if I had actually been reading this book with the intent to use the cards for divination purposes, I may have been a bit overwhelmed. I would expect a book seemingly geared toward beginners to have simplified the lists of potential card meanings, whereas what I get from this book is "Each card can mean a lot of different things, including some things that aren't listed here". But, such is the nature of symbolism.

I admit some skepticism regarding the provided history of the tarot. It seems to have ignored information of the written record we have on the tarot (that it was initially created and used primarily for card games) and replaced it with speculation of its divination uses prior to this, presenting it as indisputable fact. Given that this is a book geared toward its use for divination, I think it is reasonable for the book to include the more speculative information and that which is believed be passed down through oral tradition. I just think that there is a place for the more mundane history of the tarot as well.
