If you have no imagination or intuition this book will be frustrating. If you require a book on tarot to tell you exactly what the author tells you exactly what how to interpret each card in three sentences or less you will not enjoy this book. If you are a person who is unwilling to spend time reading, processing and doing some of the exercises presented you will hate this book. Of course if you are one of those people one has to wonder just why you are reading Trot in the first place. "Tarot for Yourself" is not a quick `how to read the tarot' book. Ms. Greer asks you to think and process her ideas for yourself discarding what you don't find useful and adding your personal views to make reading cards a unique experience.
Designed as a workbook "Tarot for Yourself" encourages you to expand your horizons with the method you use for reading. I recommend this book often and suggest people take a year to read, practice and grow while working through the exercises. Ms. Greer encourages you to discover your particular way of interpreting cards. "Tarot for Yourself" provides over a dozen spreads to spur your creativity and give you the information and confidence to create your own spreads.
The greatest message Ms. Greer imparts is `trust yourself.'
This isn't a book for someone who purely wants to learn to read Tarot. It's almost literally 97% rituals and exercises that, as someone who doesn't practice "Magic," I find completely irrelevant. True there are some spreads and at the end of the book what seems like the minimum explanation of the cards that Greer could get away with. The only real useful thing in the book is the technique she uses to get you "into" the card and get in touch with it but she has another book called 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card that expands/focuses on this.
I've bought several other Tarot books, so it's not like I do not know what I'm talking about. If you like to practice rituals along with Tarot then this book is for you but if you're only interested in a workbook where you the focus is solely on learning Tarot and nothing else, I recommend Greer's 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card or better yet (otherwise known as the best) Dusty White's The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot- Ever!! and a "reference" book such as Tarot: Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis, 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack, or The Complete Book of Tarot Reversals by Greer. Tarot for Life is also useful for using the Tarot as a tool for personal growth.
If you do not wish to get into anything other than Tarot, don't get this book. Take a look at Greer's other books though because she is a good writer, this book doesn't do her much justice in my humble opinion.
