The Book of Tarot was a well-written guide to the tarot. It provided information on working with the tarot that is helpful whether you are a beginner or have some experience reading the tarot. I was looking for something that could offer me some fresh insight to use in my readings. I was pleasantly surprised as it was easy to read and the bits of history was interesting. The full description of the tarot cards in both reverse and upright was quite informative.
