If one seriously studies the Tarot, like anything else, it will start to release its secrets. This is an excellent book for allowing the limits of the Tarot to be expanded in multiple directions as well as diminsions. That doesn't mean one has to be into the I Ching, Enochian, or Alexister Crowley, though it does allow for a mention from these areas to act as a clue for further enlightenment.
While many newer Tarot books like to replace the standard understandings with their own philosophies, which may not be as proven or as sound, this book does the opposite and reaches to grasp more of the old tried and true teachings. I would recomment this book to the serious student.
So I've been looking over the book for a few days now pretty obsessively, along with the deck, and I'm very very impressed. I've learned more about Tarot, and more importantly got more comfortable with all the things that seem to glom on to-- really now as I understand it, intersect with-- the Tarot. Lon Milo Duquette is truly a gifted writer and teacher, because you will learn the material he provides very easily.
I bought the book and the deck not for "ceremonial magick" purposes, which I had no idea what that even was, but because the book puts the cards into a broader context-- and really it puts them firmly and clearly in the broadest possible context. I've learned more about Tarot from this book in a couple of days than I did in like a year of studying other materials.
The only thing that could make the book better would be if it included a bit of history about the Tarot-- and I say that simply because I heard an interview with Mr. Duquette where he talked about the history of the Tarot, which was for my purposes very enlightening. Perhaps I'm asking him to write a big book on the Tarot. That shouldn't distract from the quality of this book, which shows the way the Tarot very completely and elegantly not only intersects with but is the full embodiment of a range of mystical and spiritual systems.
