Very practical book, i have been reading the tarot for 38 years and always keep my eyes open buying new books, i wish to know about this book before i expended a fortune buying a correspondence curse from a tarot school that after all it focused only in the description of the cards not exactly in the practical meanings that is all that matters for a reading.

Of all the books that I have purchased on reading the Tarot, none have been as good as Joan Bunning's Learning the Tarot. It's certainly designed for the beginning level Tarot card reader, it is clear, concise and makes each card understandable and memorable. I've read this one book many times now, and took the course over a year ago. I highly recommend both the book and the free course, taught by the author, and available through BNU. If you have any interest at all in learning how to read Tarot cards, this book is definitely for you!

Of all the books I have, this book is the most helpful and easiest to understand. Joan wrote this book with the beginner in mind. Other authors seem to have forgotten that most beginners are looking for guidelines to go by and some have No knowledge of the Tarot. This book is GREAT!!!! I highly recommend for the beginner and other more experienced reader!

Joan does a wonderful job explaining the tarot. I've looked at a few other tarot books but no one breaks it down to make it easier for the beginner like me. Thanks for this book and doing such a wonderful job on the BNU course. I feel I've learned lots. I hate to see the course end!

Freeze! Stop! You either got to this point in your life by typing tarot in in that keyword box.. or you got here by going through Joan's site. Good news. You can stop. You're done searching :) I will not say this book is the ultimate tarot book. I will not say that you will fail unless you buy THIS book. But I will say this. Joan is approachable, nice, and a very good teacher. She shows how to best interpret the cards for YOU. She teaches YOU how to learn the tarot in a manner that will be most conducive to YOU. You do it all. From the journal to the cards.. YOU are centered. You are central. If you want a book that gives you the ability to work with a great divination method, go ahead. Order this book. Good journey!

Ms. Bunning really explains things in depth for a beginning book and this is one of my all time favorites. I have many books on Tarot and this is one I use again and again.

This was the first tarot book I ever ran accross, and I love it! I've been very fortunate to find an online version, since I'm blind, and love the info it gives! I feel that the interpretations can be most wonderful. Joan Bunning is a great writer, and author as well at teacher.

An excellent introduction to the RWS family of decks. Bunning offers a simple, easy to use approach that will have newbies reading quickly. Simple, logical, approachable. Does not include any esoteric info but my opinion is that this topic should be reserved for intermediate tarot students.

I have several books on the tarot, but this one is the best I've seen. With this book, Joan Bunning has guided me in the direction I have wanted to go. The imagery on the Rider Waite deck has finally come to life for me. If you're looking for a book that brings out the details of the cards without being overwhelming...your search is over. I also recommend the B&N University online class that Joan teaches. She is real and reachable. Thank you, Joan, for sharing your wisdom and insight with us.

Joan's free online study version of her book illustrates her unselfish and unreserved sharing of her knowledge to others, truly the making of a true tarot card reader! Her book is very well organized, clear and concise, and allows no room for misunderstanding or confusion. It truly covers all aspects from a beginner's point of view to that of the more serious student of the tarot. I truly recommend Joan Bunning's book. It is extrememly informative and made learning all the more fun. It could easily passed off as Tarot101.

Without a doubt, a must have book!  Joan Bunning really puts it together.  I have the  hardcopy edition and she shows every card in black and white.  The exercises are excellent.  Her interpretations are easily relatable to modern life and the cards to each other.

This book is made possible by barnes and noble so is all the other nook books that you may enjoy. That is why we should help our local barnes and noble stay in business or else we may lose our nook books and nook things we love and have been spending our money on. So buy the harry potter collection on your nokk so that they dont lose business

This is one of the best Tarot books I have ever read! I absolutely loved it! The author is very engaging and it feels like she is right there with you as you work your way through the outstanding exercises. Her section on the Celtic Cross Spread is fantastic-extremely detailed and allows for the best possible interpretation using both the Position Meaning and the Card Meaning. It can be a bit of a challenge to know which Position Meaning to use (probably reader error!) but I think it is worth it to be able to explore the Card Meaning more fully.
