It’s easy to pick up your deck and jump into one of her layouts. The information she offers isn’t anything too fancy — there are several five-card spreads and the biggest spreads can be up to eight cards. In the back of the book, she gives us a quick reference to the keyword meanings of each card.
So, it’s a decent book with great information. It’s a resource that I’m going to keep on hand for a little while. It offers a lot of opportunities and questions to journal about. But is it a book I’ll keep forever? Probably not. I feel like I could outgrow it.
I think offering this book in an e-book format would be perfect for it. I drank up the information, but was still left wanting more and moved on to the next resource. It didn’t pack a punch for me. I would encourage beginners to pick up this book; seasoned vets might want to skip it.
The book is easy to read & relatively short but packed with valuable insights & methods of using the cards in imaginative and intuitive ways that show readers both old and new that tarot is a flexible tool that guides your personal journey in a fun and intriguing way. The Guidelines for Expansion is an especially useful tool for when you don't want to "overuse" the cards but need further info. This work is a gem and I am hoping to see Jeanne's depth of knowledge and experience shared with us in future books!
Well structured and quick to read. She never says "this is how it must be done", and also seems to make the assumption that her audience are not novice readers.
I found the book useful and helpful in considering how to better design my spreads, and gained some excellent ideas and support for branching out more on my own.
