About the book - ...Guide to Tarot
"Through humor and hands-on classroom experience,
we decided to present to the public and students alike, a new approach to the Tarot for the new century. Tarot, in all its mystical and historical past, has a place in the contemporized society of today. Archetypes from Darth Vader to Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, all have presence in our New Century."
"Tarot is a tool for personal growth via its symbology and design. The basics are written to create a personal connection to the Tarot. We want YOU to decide about your life through all the extras we have added to our 2nd Edition of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Tarot.
We believe that anyone can learn the basics and with such a mysterious subject as Tarot, we wanted to keep our book helpful, humorous, and encouraging the Individual to grow at his or her own pace."

Book review - ...Guide to Tarot
"I have always been interested in tarot, and had some readings, but never understood how it all worked together. Then I found this wonderful text at the recommendation of a friend, and I was hooked. I used it as a textbook, learned from the easy examples, and the wonderful modern arch-types.
Now the CIG group has updated it with current findings, clarifications, and readings for our current times. Don't believe me, go out and pick it up or read the chapter Amazon provides."
