    I purchased this book based on 100's of reviews here, and on other websites, and I was happy to see the 
    book is true to it's title. If you really want to learn tarot, not by memorizing a bunch of old dry terms for each 
    card, but by your own intuition, get this book!  If you've been reading tarot for years and feel like you need to 
    freshen up, or you are not connecting with the cards like you want to, get this book.  It's a workbook.   
    WRITE IN IT! Mess it up!  Learning tarot is supposed to be fun!  Just buy this book! 
    (Your inner self knows you want it!)

    I bought the book based on everyone's favorable comments. I really enjoy his breezy approach to tarot, which helped me understand the cards. Many books are very dry in approach. This one is not. I love the sample spreads to interpret. Definitely recommend it. His free podcasts on podamatic and videos on YouTube supplement his book. If you ever felt frustrated with learning the Tarot, this is the book. He is the guy!

    I LOVE this book. I just started working with it about a week ago and have accomplished more with my card reading than I have in the past few years I've owned the cards! I've left them sit on the shelf for months at a time because I was frustrated with them, now I have a hard time putting them down! Dusty does a phenomenal job in his teaching approach and takes the stress and struggle out of trying to learn and remember card meanings. It makes "connecting the dots" incredibly easy. I decided to purchase this book after reading a few reviews on Amazon, good and not so good, and I am NOT sorry I bought this! There is probably more information between the covers of this book that what you will find in several other tarot books combined. In addition I have viewed his website and podcasts he tells you about in the book which were also a huge help in clarifying things for me. I have also contacted Dusty via the e mail he provides for one on one help. He responded to me faster than what I expected with a lot of great information to help me. If there is only one book on reading the tarot that you should own, THIS is it!!

    Excellent Tarot Book

    I have studied many tarot books. I bought Dusty's book and I loved it.

    It is written in a way that is fun to read, very witty, and it feels like you are interacting with Dusty through the whole book. You can tell Dusty really loves sharing his passion and that he genuinely wants to help you learn tarot...not just sell books. One of the best things about the book is that it isn't just another standard definitions book (although he does provide some meanings for your study convenience). He really gets you working with the cards so you get to know them and understand them. And...as an added bonus...he has a website that he personally helps you with any questions you have...for FREE!!!!

    It is the best tarot book I have bought and I would recommend it to anyone, novice or experienced.

    A tarot-how-to that makes tarot reading accessible.

    I bought this book over a month ago because I wanted a workbook of some kind to help me learn to read tarot cards. I'd been trying to learn off and on for a little while, but was having a hard time making headway with memorization of card meanings.

    Dusty encourages students of tarot to use their intuition when reading the cards. The workbook is filled with exercises and worksheets that give you card definitions and space to fill in your own interpretations.
    After 30 days I was able to sit down and do a reading for myself and my friends and family without reaching for a dictionary!

    One of the great aspects of buying this book is gaining access to an on-line help website. Interacting with fellow students through exercises (many straight out of the book) will advance your understanding of the tarot deck even more.

    Even if you're planning to buy other books, make sure this is included in your collection. If you're feeling challenged to learn with other books, start with The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot - EVER!! Such a good book!

    Unique: This book teaches you to READ the cards!!

    I had a lot of books that said something like "learn to read tarot" but what they really did was give meanings for cards. It seems some people can learn to read this way but I couldn't seem to take those keywords and blend them into a reading. That skill is what this book teaches, in a series of well designed exercises that build on each other until you find yourself actually able to look at those cards and see a narrative. There are meanings in the back but looking at the cards and developing you intuition are encouraged. Still finding it hard to get started on you own? Not a problem-there's a free online forum where you can get help and talk with other students. I think tarot students at any level would learn from this book, but for those of us who have struggled for a while and don't do so well with the learn keywords approach, this is the book we've been looking for.

    I have many books on tarot, but Mr. White's The Easiest Way to Learn Tarot Ever!! is by far my favorite one. The style of writing is laid back, humorous, and easy to follow; not stiff and boring. The book doesn't try to explain every single symbol of the cards; instead, he emphasizes that you use your own intuition to be a reader of the cards, which I feel is where the real power of the tarot lies, not remembering a bunch of keywords (imo, just because you know all the text book meanings does not mean you will be a good reader.) The many exercises helps you to dig deep within yourself so you can become an intuitive reader--to really understand the tarot. Mr. White even has a free special website for those who've bought the book and invites students to personally correspond with him regarding any tarot questions you might have. How many other authors do that! The Easiest Way to Learn Tarot Ever!! is a must have whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro.

    the best book on tarot i've ever read!

    i have a shelf full of tarot books and this one, HANDS DOWN is the best one. instead of just explaining what the cards mean to the AUTHOR, this book challenges YOU to interpret the cards and spreads for what they mean to YOU and the situation you are questioning. i haven't seen another book do this. there are very well-written explanations of each card, if you get stuck on a card meaning or are just curious, but the bulk of this exquisitely written, beautifully designed and laid-out book are exercises and games that get you actively involved with the tarot. there is also a LOT of humor in this book, which i love.

    once you learn this very practical approach, and intimately "know" each card yourself, you will automatically be able to "feel" the cards instead of having to reach for a book to read what the card means, that is, what someone else says the card means! this book really brings the tarot to life and really allows for you and encourages you to make it part of your daily life.

    i've been playing around with tarot cards for over 15 years now, and have learned WAY more in the two or three months i've been studying from this book than i have in the entire 15 years! seriously!

    i also like how the author set it up like a workbook. mine is already chewed-up and written on so much that i'm ordering another copy! this is a great book, too, to set up a little study group where you can all play the games and learn together. i suppose it could be considered a textbook if you were a tarot teacher, it would be perfect for that.

    highly highly highly recommended!!!!

Exceptional book, and the teacher is actually interested in you learning, it has only valuable information thats worth reading and none of the super duper stuff thats does not make sense and hard to understand

    The *ONLY* Tarot book you will ever need!

    I received this book a couple of days ago and there's only really one major problem with the book: I can't put it down! Here are a few of my observations.

    The cover is simplistic, but tasteful and beautiful. It's actually much larger than I was expecting, as I was thinking it was a 6x9 book, so I was very pleasantly surprised! In fact, it's quite large, though I'm uncertain of the exact dimensions, I know it is bigger than 8.5x11. Anyway, the book itself is a workbook. It has colored sections on the side of the pages for quick reference, and this was SUCH a big help for me. If I needed to find a section on the fly, it was simple using the section markers. I have 75+ books on Tarot, buying interesting books on Tarot trying to find the right book that speaks to me & really SHOWS me HOW to read the cards. I can say out of all the books on Tarot that claim to be able to "teach" you how to read the Tarot, this book actually lives up to its word. No other book I've ever read on Tarot offers this teaching style and it really works for me! Dusty White, the author, goes an extra 5-miles and has 2 websites dedicated to helping people learn how to read the Tarot. Also, he has podcasts that are not only informative, but entertaining as well! 

    I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone interested in learning how to read The Tarot. The assistance & educational tools he offers on his FREE websites alongside the book are invaluable! If you are truly ready to learn how to read the Tarot, get this book. It's the ONLY book you will ever need to instruct you correctly and easily from the very start! I rate the book 10 stars (out of 5 stars lol). Get this book!!

    A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review

    Yes, this really is the easiest way to learn the Tarot. This is basically a workbook that puts the power and responsibility in your own hands. There is information on the Tarot, along with recommendations for a beginning deck. I’m appreciative because the deck I have just isn’t working for me.

    There are numerous exercises, spreads, and lots of instruction on each card in the deck. The first exercises are designed to get you looking at your cards, and Dusty White puts it on you to decode their meaning. What it means to you is what is important, because that will work more consistently than rote memorizing when doing readings in the future. I actually had to meditate on that for a few days before I understood it.

    The first spread mentioned is “The Hardest Spread – EVER!!” This is easy to cast, but super-duper hard to interpret. It uses the entire deck, and requires time spent meditating on your question. But the spread? Just toss your cards up and see where they fall. I found it’s placement silly and in tune with Dusty’s sense of humor.

    Which brings me to the other thing I enjoyed in this workbook, the humor Dusty brought in even as a teaching tool. I literally laughed a lot going through this, and I’m drawn to the instruction books that keep me awake, aren’t you?

    This book is exactly what I was looking for in a Tarot Workbook. I truly look forward to going through this at a slower pace and really working through…everything! Thanks so much Dusty, this gets title of “Most Useful Yule Gift Ever!”

    A must have for anyone who wants to learn the tarot

    It's a workbook, not a bunch of meanings you have to memorize. You will need a pen, and some time to sit and read this thing. The focus is on developing your abilities as a reader, not to teach you keywords. Fortunately it comes with free online help.
