If you're looking for a quick study of the Tarot, this is not the book for you. But, if you want to enhance your basic knowledge of this practice, then I highly recommend "Tarot Wisdom". Rachal Pollack uses her extensive knowledge of the craft to compare and contrast the many forms Tarot has had over the centuries. She explains each card in a concise manner that helps the student of Tarot to understand how any given card can be interpreted. Even though Pollack delves deep into meaning, the student comes away with the ability to apply their own spin on a reading while being able to draw on Pollack's research. The book is intense so be prepared to take notes. Information on how to take care of your deck as well as how to read various spreads is included.

Good, solid insights and writing: a worthy companion for Pollack's earlier Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom. The most interesting part for me was in the section on the Minor Arcana, when Pollack looks at each card not only through the Golden Dawn/Kabbalistic numerology that many tarot readers will be familiar with, but also through Pythagorean numerology. She has developed small layouts to explore each card of the Major Arcana as well as each suit of the Minor Arcana.
