I consider myself an OK student, but have limited time to study the tarot and its history. So for the moment, I need to limit myself to a few well written and well researched books, if only just to start off with. After the demise of ATF, I found myself uncertain as to where to post an entry level question such as this. I do apologize in advance if this level of a question is not in keeping with the usual caliber of this forum I did spot a thread commenting on some of Decker's statements in this book. But I am not sure if I should take that as an implicit recommendation. The reviews I found online seemed mixed. I have Wicked Packs of Cards and History of the Occult Tarot, both of which seemed to be universally favoured. Thanks in advance!
