Book Review: Tarot Tells the Tale

Let's say that you've spent some time learning the theory behind Tarot and the meanings of the cards, but are not sure how to proceed with doing readings for yourself or others. Would some practical examples help? How about some impractical examples? In that case, you're in luck, because Tarot Tells the Tale by James Rickleff is here to help. The book provides 23 actual readings based on fictional and historical characters, with commentary by the author. For example, what would you tell the ugly duckling about how to deal with his siblings? Or Marie Curie about whether to go study in France?

I wouldn't recommend this book for beginners, because most of it is either readings or advice on giving readings, but it would probably make a good second book after Learning the Tarot: A Tarot Book for Beginners. After reading this book, you should be ready to get started.
