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.

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!
