Many of you are familiar with Anthony Louis’ class Tarot Plain and Simple, which is an excellent book for beginners.

For those who are “beyond the basics” we now have Anthony Louis’ long-awaited Tarot Beyond the Basics.


This wonderful book takes you further into your tarot studies. Not only does Louis provide stellar content, he does so with humor, real life examples, and complete accessibility.

One of my favorite parts is a section called “Other Schools of Tarot Reading ” (pp 131 – 135). He shows that whatever school (or reading style) you use, you will arrive at the same answer. He does the same reading using these methods: Intuitive, Historical, Systems-based, Traditional RWS, Psychological/Archetypal, Personal Interpretations, and Integrationist.

This is book really does have something for everyone…and it is such an enjoyable read!
