This is not your average tarot book. And it certainly is no "Tarot for Dummies".

In fact, I am going to start off by saying that this book took me a lot longer to get through than most tarot books that I own. I'm a fast reader but this one demanded that I slow down and take my time. (The only other tarot books that have affected me that way were Jodorowsky's "The Way of the Tarot" and "Forest of Souls" by Rachel Pollack.)

Tarosophy by Marcus Katz strives to be a complete tarot book that covers exercises from beginner to advanced student with a section in the back for professionals. Packing that much into one book does run the risk of being a "jack of all trades, master of none" but the author manages to put together a pretty good book.

The beginner's section starts out with basic information such as how to choose your deck, preparing to read, an intro to Kabbalah (a simple but effective technique brings this home beautifully), archetypes, spreads and more. Just this section alone would have merited one book in itself but the author manages to get all this information in and make it digestible.

The intermediate and advanced section is where the average tarot reader may feel a bit lost. Here, the author delves into some pretty heavy stuff - from a 7 day ritual, to triads, 3D spreads, meditations, the natal chart, NLP techniques, deeper Kabbalah and more. This is not for lightweights. And some of the techniques presented may not be of interest for every tarot reader either. (For example, I would not be interested in doing a Thoth based ritual - but fans of that deck may be enthusiastic for something of that nature.)

I was impressed with some of the exercises presented in the book.

Hey buy Marcus Katz new book, if you have any interest in the Tarot, I am just about half way through Tarosophy. Tarot to Engage Life, Not Escape It and am glad to say that it was worth the $30 price tag, he has a novel way of teaching tarot and I think this book should be on the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in the Tarot.
If for nothing else(and this book is packed with so much interesting info that I haven't seen in other tarot books) the cost was worth it just for a little spread for 'yes/no' questions, I used it at a workshop and everyone thought it 'da bomb' and have had several readers ask me to teach it to them.
Many of the exercises and tips I found really useful and have started adding them to our 12 month Witchcraft courses, especially our second year course which deals in the practical application of magick.
I am really glad to have pre-ordered it as, when I took a look, Amazon has it listed as Currently unavailable.
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
So they really need to get the book back on the shelves, think this will definitely be a collector ;)

A good editor would have really, truly helped this book. It's not that the proofreading is poor -- it's that the writing itself needs some paring down, some sense of concision and elegance.

On the whole, the book comes across as a collection of patched together notes rather than as something unified. And I'm bothered by the authors' tendency to portray information as "secret" or somehow revelatory, when what they are "revealing!" is information that any scholar could find in the library. They are hardly the first to see those "secret" documents, and will hardly be the last.

'Tarosophy' is one of the most well-researched books on tarot I've ever read. The author, Marcus Katz, has spent over 3 decades studying the tarot and it's history. Mr. Katz has compiled a wonderful journey through the tarot including techniques and exercises that will prove valuable to any tarot reader. Whether a beginning student or a practicing master, this book will compel you to move deeper into your personal journey and access areas previously unexplored. Clear, comprehensive, and intelligent writing brings a new dimention to the Art of Tarot.

Tarosophy. Tarot to Engage Life, Not Escape It (Modern Magistery series) If you're looking for a book containing tons of innovative exercises, masses of information and no more card interpretations (we already have enough books full of those!) this is the book you want to be reading. From beginner to advanced reader Tarosophy has something for everyone, if you enjoy Tarot you'll read this book from cover to cover and love it! This book is bound to become a classic, it really is the best Tarot book I've read, absolutely worth every penny (and I pre-ordered mine at £30+!). I can't recommend this book highly enough. Buy it!!

Initially I thought this is another book on tarot which claim high. As I started reading, it is really different approach and makes it so simple to understand and easy to apply. NLP approach is something very unique. I have given at least 10 reading using the method given. All have come out very accurate. This is gives more confidence and started getting more assertive readings.

Section one gives quite a bit of very important information for the aspiring Tarot reader. I found it easy to understand and thoroughly enjoyed working with exercises.

There is a wonderful section on legalities that everyone needs to read
