This book is definitely a must have for both the beginer and intermediate. This book has a whopping 400 pages published and bound in quality paper. the book is heavily illustrated with meanings and key words for all 78 cards. Pages 260 through 367 cover a wide variety of spreads, which is just so awesome because they go deeper than some of the other spreads that I am used to. There is also a section on tarot spells also, but I am quite content in using tarot for self help. This book is highly recommended and it is very affordable. I live in Canada, and I paid the cover price of 17.95 brand new. If you live in the u.s. it's only 14.95. Well worth it. This is by far the only book on learning tarot and many tarot spreads you will ever need.
