Do not waste your money or your credit!

Not sure which is worse - the lack of information and depth the book provides or the narrator who reads like a 6th grader reluctantly standing in front of the class reading their book report. One word review: Painful!

A Most Excellent Reference


This is truly wonderful if you are interested in learning the meanings and symbolism of the tarot cards. This is everything you need to know as a tarot listener (beginner or experienced) There is something in here for all tarot readers. What I like best about is its attention to detail explaining what you are looking at in each card. It brings out details you may not have noticed. I love this and would happily recommend it to anyone interested in the Tarot.

Great Listen

This book is easy to read and flows well. It gives a quick interpretation of each card and Ren Hammer narrated them nicely with her pleasant voice, plan to continue to use this book to listen back through to help me read my cards in the future until I get the hang of listening to them!

best book for beginners

The layout is easy to understand, and I am able to find the interpretation I need as I practice listening the cards. I am just starting out listening tarot cards so I don't need/want anything too intricate or complicated. This is perfect.

The book gives you enough information

This book is so helpful for me as a person who's new to tarot. I love that the book gives you enough information without being too wordy or complicated. Tiana's voice makes it very easy to listen . I especially love the reversed definitions.

This book is by far my favorite on the subject of

I know there were some challenges with the first edition of the book, but huge props to the Biddy Tarot team to take all that feedback and implement fixes. I have the revised/second edition and it's just wonderful - precisely the quality and insightful commentary I've come to expect from being a long time Biddy Tarot website reader. This guide will be a great edition to any tarot library.

Best tarot guide out there

This is a thorough guide, easy to understand. Cannot live without it...plus it has helped me read intuitively. I'm realizing that I need less and less the guide when I read. Great for the beginner I am.

not the best

The book is rather patronising at times and dwells for far too long on tips on how to advertise your tarot reading services rather than giving a more in-depth insight into the cards and spreads, their specific meaning or give examples.

Great little book!

I am a beginner but have studied tarot on and off over the years. I wanted an inexpensive replacement as a refresher. This book gives a wonderful insight into the cards and coincides with what I already know. The descriptions are concise but very useful. There is also a short description of the most common spreads.

Best Tarot book!!!

I absolutely love this book! It's easy to understand the descriptions of the cards, it arrived exactly when it said it would. I've used the Biddy Tarot site quite a few times and I was super excited when I heard about it being announced in book form. It's by far one of the best books on tarot that I've encountered. I highly recommend for anyone interested in the magical world of Tarot. Judith Guise is very insightful and knowledgeable.

Good resource!

I like this book a lot. I generally read from the Thoth deck and this one is generally minded towards the Rider-Waite, but it REALLY has a great perspective on the cards when I can't find a reliable source elsewhere -- or I need to bridge the gap. My only complaint is the printing. The first one was bound so poorly it had pages falling out -- they quickly replaced it, but I can't get over the HUGE typeface.

Very thorough!

THIS IS A MUST BUY!!!!! To anyone considering learning how to read tarot, this book is your best friend. Not only does it list every card, but it also lists meanings for different aspects AND the reversed meaning. It's the most comprehensive book I've found, and it's made me a better reader. Plus, it works with most decks, which is nice considering I have gifted a deck that only matched the book by card name.

An efficient tool.

What an excellent tool! This book is designed for efficiency. The name of the cards is on the upper left-hand corner to make the search fast and easy. Judith Guise shared her knowledge with the world free of charge for years on her website but sometimes searching online can be cumbersome, I'm grateful that this book is available.

This book is excellent for developing your skills

Listening Tarot involves understanding the cards and symbology, developing a connection and rapport with your deck -- not going from book to book reading other people's insights. Honor your own unique authority and heart. References are there to assist when the reader draws a blank, gets stuck or is looking for additional insight and understanding. This book is excellent for developing your skills. The range of information is extensive. It you are serious about working with Tarot or simply desire a greater understanding of the philosophy as a whole - this text should be in your library. I highly recommend it. Well done!!
