it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2016

Finished at the second attempt. At worst, it's pompous and didactic, a sort of hellishly complicated self-help book by Tarot's own Paolo Coelho. At its best , it's challenging, bracingly different and wholly refreshing. This is not a book for beginners but forms a genuine and much-needed alternative to the generic Rider-Waite-Coleman-Smith default. There have been other attempts to reset Tarot away from the Golden Dawn-based system but this one is *serious*. Highly recommended.
