    A fascinating sort of memoir manual about Jane Stern s previously unknown life as a tarot card reader, she is a fourth generation tarot card reader, though she s most known as a food writer with Michael Stern and is often heard on NPR s Splendid Tabel talking about road food In this book she explains each of the cards, and their symbolic meanings, as well as their influence in her readings with clients Sometimes sad or tragic, but mostly funny,

    As a Newbie , I have tried to use my Tarot cards togive me knowledge of the present and future and its accompanying problems I can now tell I was a bit offin my own interpretations compared to Ms Stern s Perhaps I have tried to put too much of a personal spin on each card I overturned The author gives the readermuchthan just practical advise she gives youinsight into the psychic world and how it applies toyou as well as a treasure trove of client s

    On the positive side because I don t want to be totally negative, I did like the fact that she chose this newer atmospheric deck to illustrate the pages instead of the typical Rider Waite cards The book is reallyabout human drama than about the Tarot and it s good for that reason but I wish it was a better tarot book.I ve seen a thread about it on Aeclectic Tarot forum and to tell the truth I don t think a lot of Tarot people will embrace it too much F

    Based on inaccurate history which is kind of bad for a nonfiction book But it presents the false information comprehensibly, and the illustrations are nice, so I won t be chucking it out the window.I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway.

    Provides a decent perspective on most of the cards Some of the linkages are poorly developed Her privileged life colors her opinions of things she has the typical things in my childhood were so much simpler and better, ignoring that many outside her social circle would have been suffering then, as well She also has a bizarre opinion that everything of the occult is dangerous and evil, a view many hold of Tarot itself Be prepared to disagree with many of her progno

    For those of you who know me, you are probably thinking What the Heck This book got five stars It s about Tarot Card Reading And, yes, that is exactly what it is about but I loved it Let me elaborateThis author did a very good job at teaching me of her conviction of tarot card reading through telling a story of each card She took cards 1 22 of a typical deck of 78 tarot cards, and told a story about each one and what they represent Not only what they represent, but ho
