The book can be difficult to read, because it is a translation from German At first I found it difficult to understand, but as I continued reading, I could come to see the value of this book for anyone who writes using the structure of the Hero s journey In fact, by the time I finished the book, I decided that I need to study this book again, because it has so much to offer the writer in way of ideas for a characters journey I bought the kindle version, but then I went out and got the print e The book can be difficult to read, because it is a translation from German At first I found it difficult to understand, but as I continued reading, I could come to see the value of this book for anyone who writes using the structure of the Hero s journey In fact, by the time I finished the book, I decided that I need to study this book again, because it has so much to offer the writer in way of ideas for a characters journey I bought the kindle version, but then I went out and got the print edition because it has a color pictures, and a very valuable fold out chart in the back I was sad to find out the author passed in 2009 Great book Well worth the read Este libro propone al lector un acercamiento en profundidad a losarcanos mayores del Tarot desde las perspectivas psicol gica e inici tica En l el autor explica la historia que la baraja Waite cuenta sobre el viaje del h roe Tomando el Tarot como referencia, nos describe diversos aspectos del viaje, ya que durante la vida podemos encontrarnos asumiendo distintos roles en el camino del h roe El autor nos revela c mo los arcanos marcan y definen nuestra posici n en cualquier momento dado de nuestra saga personal y c mo cada uno de ellos, funciona como una se ar de alerta que nos orienta en nuestro camino hacia la liberaci n Had this book for many years but only now read it This is a fantastic read and will give you a wonderful, rich background for reading the Major Arcana Like many modern interpreters, Banzhaf is a Jungian such a pain, this But I will forgive him, this is a fun to read book with many references to many cultures, and meaningful color illustrations Bravo. O livro ideal para quem quer entender o Tar , tanto no contexto hist rico quanto das suas pr ticas. As Banzhof explains in the introduction to this book, true psychological and spiritual maturity is less likely to be found in the teachings and rituals of an esoteric coterie than in a psychological investigation of symbols This is not a guide for the use of Tarot cards as divination but is instead an excellent foundation for a Jungian model of psychological development symbolized and illustrated in this case by the cards of the Major Arcana Use this book as a guide to metaphor and imaginati As Banzhof explains in the introduction to this book, true psychological and spiritual maturity is less likely to be found in the teachings and rituals of an esoteric coterie than in a psychological investigation of symbols This is not a guide for the use of Tarot cards as divination but is instead an excellent foundation for a Jungian model of psychological development symbolized and illustrated in this case by the cards of the Major Arcana Use this book as a guide to metaphor and imagination rather than as a literal guide to fixed interpretations Besides, it s a great thing to read before reading Foucault s Pendulum although I didn t find this untilthan a decade after I had read Foucault s Pendulum Tarot is a literary form to survive the Dark Ages Take Tarot readings not for fortunetelling, but for meditation on issues we or our characters face For me, The Tower has special meaning after Sept 11. This book contained some very insightful information about archaic symbolism in Tarot, however it was written poorly I discovered the author is a native German so I decided to cut him some slack Rather dry reading for the average dilettante thoughreads a lot like a textbook.
