If he simply went through all the cards, as so many other books do, well, his book would be like the others.
But he goes over the underlying theory (if I might be forgiven for calling 5000 years of mysticism "theory") and sets a very nice basis for the things that are revealed in the Thoth Tarot.
There are not all the many people who are actually qualified to explain all this complicated mystic information but he certainly is. And of the people who can explain it many of them would, no doubt, make it dry. But, good lord, he keeps it interesting.
And all this explication is essential because the Thoth Tarot really is the culmination and the bringing together of many many mystic lines of inquiry over thousands of years. It would be truly overwhelming if Mr. Duquette didn't treat the subject with his incredible depth of knowledge and excellently accessible writing!
As you might have guessed by this point, I highly recommend this book!
I have studied the deck with both Crowley's and Duquette's interpretations on hand, and have found the experience far more rewarding than my attempts to use Crowley as my sole resource.
Highly recommended to be used in conjunction with - but not as a replacement for - Crowley's interpretation of the deck.
I bought the deck, and immediately had to get this book. Helps SO much with reading the actual cards.
If you buy the deck... you better buy this next.
You're going to want to anyways.
