    The Real Thing

    Yes - this is the original. This is the 'mandatory' deck to accomplish. Why? Because there is a path, and the images here will start you off well. Nothing will be gained if this deck is passed over in favor of trendy oracle decks and angel cards. Save those for dessert. Here is where the Path begins. The rest is up to you. This is the classic, with well-shaped cards, nice slip, good thick card stock, especially after the 1970's - which were printed in a disconcertingly offset color on pulpy cardboard. No laminate. Yes, the backs might look plain, but they work far better than many newly produced decks. They accomplish exactly what the back of the card should.

    Enjoyable first step

    I quite like the deck, but the book is relatively worthless. I started with it, but have switched to looking most cards up online and will have to invest in a better book or put time into research online to get enough background to feel confident reading other people's cards.

    its great but one problem

    first of all its good to start off don't need to buy the set, it costs the same so don't be fooled. The only other problem is that it gives you an exellent meaning and interpretation of the reverse meanings but it doesn't say when to flip the cards or if you flipped too many. It is pretty vague in that sense. I don't recommend anything for other books but i have seen some out there. First, you should go to a book store or other store where you may purchase a deck and look at the cards, if you aren't attached to them then don't get it. Your tarot deck is a very personal thing. I wish i did more research but now i have to go buy or find info on how and when to reverse the cards.
