I'm just learning and exploring the tarot. I heard that Rider-Waite was pretty much everyone's go to. I just got the package and so far I love it. The colors are vivid and the book that comes along with it includes information on reversed cards.

This is a fantastic set for beginners, collectors and readers. The cardstock is a good thickness and the colours of the cards are brilliant. I started reading Tarot with the original RWS deck 38 years ago and still recommend it as a good place to start for beginners. The book is huge, 264 pages all in colour. Starts with an Introduction, Intuition, Allegory and Dialogue, How to use this book, Deck spreads and a Glossary of Tarot related terms. You also receive a full colour spread Celtic Cross sheet for readings. My favourite part is the Tarot Symbolism at the end where it tells you what the images on the cards mean, it adds so much more understanding to your readings. This is definitely a must have for any Tarot Reader.

The color enhancement makes the symbols and colors more meaningful. If you like to have a more pleasant look at the RW Tarot, buy this. If you like a more mysterious, original feeling, get the Universal Waite, Centennial, or original RW Tarot. Card back is awesome. Guidebook is a +++ more stars to this item, because this helps me as a beginner Tarot reader to understand the feeling of each card at a glance, and let my intuition take over the rest.

The book is beautiful and colorful. And, I think it may work for many who are looking for a simple and concise guide to the Tarot. So, for some this will be exactly what they're looking for. It has great illustrations - and is printed and has a layout that makes it very pleasing to the eye, easy to digest and easy to locate information.

This is a wonderful book to accompany my cards. After visiting a friend who uses the new Radiant book & deck I rushed to buy some. They are beautifully renewed and the book is amazing, as a result these are the only cards and book I use.

Get this kit…if you’re a beginner to the Tarot and even if you’re an experienced reader. This is an absolute and essential tool for learning to read the Rider-Waite card. From quick readings for popular questions to instructions for reading and using spreads, Exploring Tarot Using Radiant Rider-Waite delves into the most detail of any of my Tarot books.
Exploring Tarot is now my staple Tarot book and so, too, is the Radiant Rider-Wait deck. To learn the Tarot it’s essential that you learn from an expert (i.e. this book) is one of them, with the cards being the greatest tool of them all. As much as I love specialty decks, I now know that the Radiant Rider-Waite is the best source of Tarot knowledge I’ve come across in my years of reading Tarot books and studying the decks. For the experienced, this is a wonderful source of information that you may have overlooked in your years of reading.
