Book: Mary Greer 21 Ways To Read A Tarot Card by Mary Greer

f you're familiar with Greer's other books on Tarot, this books continues her excellent tradition of continuing to provide innovative ways to do divination. If you're not familiar with her work, pick this book up as it will be all you'll need. Greer builds off her previous work quite well and elements of that previous work can easily be found in this book.

What I liked the most about this book was all the exercises she offered. This wasn't a theory book, but a book that demands work from the person. And at the same time the exercises build on each other. It's easy to incorporate them into each other as you go through the book. This not only encourages acquisition of the concepts but also allows for experimentation.

My only quibble is that she didn't include internal citations for her sources, as she did with her previous work, but this is likely a case of the publisher dictating policy on that. If you want to improve your skills as a diviner then pick this book up, because you won't go wrong.

Drawing on nearly forty years of tarot experience, Mary K. Greer has developed a new energizing approach-made up of twenty-one stimulating techniques-to interpret or deepen your understanding of each card. Just as the twenty-one letters of the alphabet can be combined to form billions of words, Greer's twenty-one methods can be used in any combination for gaining amazing new insights and perspectives.

Emphasizing both traditional and personal methods of interpretation, Greer's techniques involve storytelling, sketching, symbols, metaphors, dialogues, acting, and other imaginative exercises. Designed to bring about interaction, transformation, and empowerment, this twenty-one-pronged approach to tarot can help readers expand standard interpretations and evolve new ways of connecting to the cards. Winner of the Coalition of Visionary Resources Award for Best divination Book.
