Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for people who know very little about tarot, and want to get a good first impression of it.
The book is printed in color on good paper, and covers briefly every aspect of it - it's history, uses, types of decks, card meanings, and spreads.
The most attractive feature of this deck is that it features cards from many different decks, allowing the reader to get an impression of a wide variety of decks - something I havent seen in any other book, except in the expensive Encyclopedia of the Tarot which is *much* more expensive.
I love to show this book to people who are not familiar with the tarot just to give them a quick impression of it.
My only reservation is the price - I think it's a little too expensive if it's the only item in an order. I'd recommend ordering it along with something else to spread the shipping fees over a couple of items.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Annette Hrisko-Allen on March 8, 2001
Format: Paperback
For such a little book, it is loaded with Tarot history and helpful information on the definitions of each card and suit. I especially enjoyed looking at the wide variety of sample cards from various decks. Lionnet also presents several different layouts, besides the usual "Three Card" and "Celtic Cross", that encourage diverse experimentation.
Another helpful item was the collection of "sample readings" at the end of the book. Lionnet applies each layout (i.e. Jungian, dual Options, Celtic Cross, etc...) to a specific Querent and then discusses each card in the spread in relation to the other cards.
A handy book for either the casual or the merely curious, this would make a great gift.

Format: Hardcover
This book is perfect for those who just want to dip into Tarot. It is not for a serious card reader, but it will do to help figure out what each card means. I found it most useful to get a look at the different kinds of Tarot deck designs available, and the various spreads for telling fortunes. Great help if one wants to design one's OWN deck, too!

Format: Hardcover
So, your intrested in starting tarot? This tiny book has loads of information for those who are unfamiliar with the tarot. It tells you all kinds of spreads and gives meanings for the cards. I like this book because it had pictures of the cards from many different decks. This could help a beginner choose which deck looks good to them!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By ubalu on November 6, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most appropriate tarot books for a novice. The special features are amazing, with history, types of tarot packs and their specialties, and the many uses other than divination. Each card is described beautifully with color pictures, meanings, and interpretations. While the new curious reader will benefit a lot out of this book, it is loaded with information of depth for a regular tarot practitioner, too.

Very well-presented book.
