This book has an academic focus and can be fairly dense reading - definitely not a beach read! But if you are willing to work with the text, there is a great wealth of interesting and useful information that can be wonderfully informative and also give you insights into your own practice with the tarot.
It's not a "must-read" to be a practicing tarot reader, but for those who like to research the history of their "arts," this is an excellent resource.
This is not a "how to" Tarot guide book but just as it says, a history. It establishes the personalities, places, & groups necessary & goes on to develop the story better than I have see it done elsewhere.
