Some tarot readers “wing it,” brainstorming meanings cards based on insight and intuition. Others spend months memorizing traditional meanings for each card. What’s in the Cards for You? provided a refreshing alternative to these extremes. By completing one of thirty quick, engaging “experiments” per day, students learned to read tarot without the need to memorize a single canned meaning.

When writing this book, I used my corporate training design skills to solve a classic problem: how to make “yet another beginner book” unique in the market? The resulting text generated more fan mail than any other book-length project I’ve created.
