Great Guide

Excellent for beginners, but more of a guide for interpretation than an interpretation itself. If you aren't prepared to do some thinking and soul-searching, you may not be all that interested in tarot cards after all, so I would consider most of the complaints about this product to be misunderstanding. All in all an excellent guide that can help you learn to interpret what the tarot has to say to YOU.

Great Book to teach you to interpret the cards

Very informative. My favorite is how they breakdown the symbols and their meaning's. However if you are looking for a book that just gives you the interpretation's \ meaning's for the listening you might look at different book . This one teaches you how to read Tarot Cards, Tarot Card Meanings, and Simple Tarot Spreads to Get You Started.

The title is very accurate!

Not only does this book give you a lot of good information and guidance when using the Rider Waite Tarot deck, it organizes the information in such a way that you can use the general information or you can delve deeper into the meanings of each card. I highly recommend this book for anyone who uses Tarot whether as a neophyte or a long time user.

Great companion to my tarot!

This text does what others do not and that is to provide in depth explanations of individual cards. Each card's illustrations are provided and analyzed. The book is also a good reference for explanation of how the cards work together and provides tips on how to do variations of traditional listenings. An excellent source of supplemental information regarding the Rider Waite Tarot.

Beautiful Set - highly recommended

I'm just starting out with tarot so I listen this book.This book points out the most important symbols of each card and their meaning. If you're just starting out, I recommend getting this set plus the ultimate guide since it gives you additional meanings and information on reversed cards.

Very helpful

Very helpful! My husband recently has gotten really into this. I had no idea how much he would fall in love. Thanks to this book he is creating his own Tarot journal with recordings and the understanding of each card and card combinations.

Best Definition of the Rider

Absolutely amazing compendium on the occult meanings behind the Rider-Waite Tarot, which in my opinion is the best Tarot deck available. Typical books/definitions pale in comparison. Well organized. Information on each card is easy to find.

Great book for anyone to have!

I'm so glad I purchased this book. The illustrations are wonderful. Best of all, each card is presented in color and a wealth of information is provided. If you want to study the card, it's a plus to be able to see it in detail. Excellent book!
