OK, I like gadgets. I admit it. But I don't like all of them. I like ones that are helpful and make things easier or make me more productive. Perhaps you've seen those hand-held devices that combine a datebook, a calendar, a telephone book, an address book, and more. Some of them will even let you check your email, surf the internet, or play games. And these devices are so small they can fit in your pocket. I like that type of thing.
Tarot Companion by Tracy Porter is like those multi-use devices. It has so many different types of information in it, all of which you're going to find a use for. Would you like to have a quick explanation of the meaning of each of the Tarot cards? It's in there. How about the meaning of the symbols on the cards? It's in there, too.
How about using such systems as the I Ching, the runes, or astrology to enhance your understanding of the Tarot cards and let you give better readings. You'll find that covered in the book. You'll also have all the information you need to improve your Tarot reading using color, numerology, the Cabala, and more.
Do you want another Tarot spread to give a better reading for a specific question? This book doesn't have just one or two spreads, but offers over twenty of them so you can find exactly what you need.
Keep this book with your Tarot deck so you can consult it often. Every time you open it you're going to find something new that you can use. There's no longer a need to have multiple books because this one gives you what you need.
I hope you give this book a try. I know you're not only going to like it you're going to use it!
