When I first read and understood this book, I did not understand any of the other wiccan, qabalistic or esoteric schools. This book, though, was the lens through which I was able to explore all those schools - without it I could not have done so.
Why? Because Mr Fenton-Smith's book relies on lively prose and real examples. For someone - like me - who was not ready to ponder the esoteric meaning of the Tarot, this book was like the gentle turn of a key - not forceful...but enough to make me think enough and accept enough to go ahead.
Today I am not a professional Tarot reader. I have, though, had times when Tarot has touched my and my querent's lives' forever. I'll never forget the elderly gentleman who'd travelled to Australia after an argument with his daughter. I was only "playing" with my cards, yet after my reading to him, I knew that "playing" was not part of their game.
I confess that this time was one of my more clairvoyant/telepathic times but the cards - the basis of which I'd learned and studied through this book - made sure I stayed grounded and wasn't just relying solely on my own intuition.
Read this book if you'd like to learn more of the Tarot.
There were numerous moments that left me thinking,"mmmm, really?" and made me reread the sections. If you're a purist at heart, you may have a hard time agreeing with some of the interpretations. IMO however even when they may deviate from the traditional meanings, he offers really convincing translations based on his own experiences, or the way he interprets the imagery.
I recommend this book. If you are a beginner studying tarot, I think having another resource with more elaboration on the traditional meanings would be very helpful as well. I find the value in this book being that it offers completely new ways of looking at some of the aspects of the cards, and this way of thinking laterally opened lots of doors for new interpretations/understanding of the keys.
