This deck is definitely a "staple" in the large selection of tarot literature that exists today. I highly recommend using this tarot pack if you are a beginning reader. The cloth has the standard celtic cross spread already imprinted on it for easy learning and the mini book provides just enough information to get one started on the path to reading. However, if you are a skilled reader to begin with, this tarot pack would not be for you; the deck, alone would be sufficient.
This deck has a nice look to it. The package contains a book with the deck which is a bit difficult to follow although it does provide for reverse meanings which many books do not. I would suggest purchasing this deck along with a book such as "Power Tarot" to provide more insight on the cards and many more spreads.
I love this deck. It's so easy to use, especially for the beginner. The little book that comes with the deck gives a nice overview of various ways to use the deck. The print is a bit on the tiny side as the book is small enough to fit in your pocket but it's still quite useable; very handy. The artwork is lovely. I've been quite happy with my purchase.

I bought this set based on the previous reviews and I quite agree with the other reviewers. This set is very nice, easy to use and I do recommend it. However, the book that came in the set, one would need a magnifying glass to read it. Thank you Overstock for great service.
My interest in Tarot is very new. I purchased this pack because of the beautiful deck and the explanation book that comes with it. The cards are large and easy to shuffle. The art work is beautiful. The book is small, which means small print, but very informative. I'm very happy with my purchase.
