Introduction to Tarot is the result of my many years of teaching tarot classes. It is full of detailed explanations of both the Waite-Rider-Smith and Crowley Thoth decks— the two best-selling tarot decks of all time— complete with beautiful color illustrations. The lay-flat binding makes it a useful companion to refer to when laying out and learning more about your cards.
Introduction to Tarot was originally created as a part of The Complete Tarot Kit, which also comes with two decks of tarot cards. The Complete Tarot Kit was so successful that readers who already had their own cards asked my publisher to publish the book on its own.
RAVE REVIEWS for INTRODUCTION TO TAROT
“This is my Tarot Bible! It is well loved and well worn. After almost 9 years of love. I’ve tried taping the side of the book back many times, but after just as many times it kept coming off. I’m now keeping it on one of my many Moon in Cancer keepsake boxes because The Complete Tarot Kit really is, and always will be, one of my greatest treasures! Thank you for continuing to share your amazing gift for teaching with all of us, Susan.”

“I have a BAZILLION books on Tarot and they are all wonderful. I cycle through them and re-read them etc. But you know how you have that one book that is like the mother of them all? It’s the most worn, the most referred to and the one you always go back to? Yeah, that’s “Introduction to Tarot” in my book case. She’s like the mama.”

“I was recently given your book “Introduction to Tarot” as a present by a friend tarot reader. I keep referring to it – can’t put it down. Thank you for writing such a great guide. I am a latecomer to Tarot, having recently retired and hoping the memorizing of the cards will help keep my mind clear and active into old age, and at the same time, eventually give help to others. ”
– Bob Jowett, retired teacher, Seattle Wa
“This book is just magnificent. You must be very proud of it. The size is perfect, the colors spectacular and the text is engaging. I especially liked your dedication as I am one of your past/present/future students! Thank you.”
– Gavin W. Young, Jr., tarot card reader, life coach, and counselor
“I recently got given your Introduction to Tarot for my birthday by my best friend. I have always been very interested in astrology, meditation and wanted to learn how to read tarot so much. Your guide was the ideal introduction. Our summer break is coming to an end here in Paris and I have now completed the 30 day 3 card spread journal. Now that I can recognize most of the cards, I hardly need to look at the book. It feels great to have accomplished something I’ve always wanted to do. I wanted to thank you for making such a good kit for beginners. Every single card is extremely well explained and I look forwards to discovering the many, many different spreads! Thanks again and keep it up!”
