   Every serious Tarotist should have this book!
An excellent book for adding depth to your basic reading skills - truly a classic in its genre. It is cogent, lucid, with intelligent and insightful explanations. It really helps a reader to understand the tarot symbols in the context of the culture they evolved in and relate them to how we see our world within the readings we give. There is a strong, useful psychological aspect to writing that helps to expand the point of view. The gestures and the body language of figures are explored with a new profundity. Roles become more fluid and invite the reader to enter the scenes and situations with greater immediacy. All this gives an extra flavor and texture as well as depth.

   Best title ever on the subject...
Her approach to the subject resonates deeply with me and I believe that if you agree with her following quote, you will feel the same way about her books. There is a famous Chasidic proverb that says : God created humans because God loves stories. '' Story allows us to enter the cards and become part of them in a way unlike anything else, not study, not meditation. To me, story seems the basis of the readings, with the querent the hero, the question the springboard of the plot and the cards in their hands the action.

   A Must-Have!
Regardless of the level of Tarot knowledge you have, this book will offer lots of food for thought and important information. However, it is not a quick keyword reference book. For this there are plenty of books on the market. Pollack's book is an in-depth analysis of imagery, esoteric meanings and background, etc. Tarot deck based on the Rider-Waite-Smith model. Though it is not light reading, it is fully accessible and is certain to add more understanding and depth to the appreciation of and work with the Tarot.

   One of the best!
With the RiderWaite deck as foundation, Pollack explains the symbolic meanings of each card, using the artwork on the RW cards as well as comparisons with other known decks. She believes the Major Arcana cards as if they tell a story of their own, taking the reader on a journey into deep self. Suitable for meditation, but also useful in divination.

   Excellent
This is the most comprehensive, informative book on Tarot that I have ever read. Rachel Pollack covers all bases in a very approachable, helpful way. You never feel like you are being taught. It is an amazing book. I use it with my rider - Whitney deck and it offers an incredible amount of insight. If you buy just one book on Tarot, this is what I recommend.

   Excellent book buuuut …
The printing job is absolutely terrible. I don 't know what happened, but there are bar codes cut at the tops and bottom of pages, wrong type, it is not too distracting, but it catches my attention every time I see it. However, the book content is excellent itself. Don 't let print problems deter you! This review is intended for the blue copy of the book, not the yellow, as illustrated. That has perhaps something to do with it.
