    1. Disclaimer: I received a free eARC of this book through netgalley in exchange for a review.Ah, the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck. A deck created 100 years ago. A deck that influenced all the decks that have come since. But where did Smith get her inspirations from? What is the real story behind this deck? That's what drove Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin to write Secrets of the Waite-Smith Tarot. They spent a lot of time researching into the past, to bring out documents, images, and letters to tease [...]

    2. I'm just getting started into my journey with tarot, I don't claim to be anything but a beginner. So, I learned a lot from this book. It was interesting and kept my attention the whole way through. I'd recommend this to anyone. Novice or Expert.

    3. Authors Katz and Goodwin have focused their considerable understanding of Tarot history and symbolism to an historical quest for the origins and meaning of the Tarot cards that are universally recognized and read today. The card deck in question, known as Waite-Smith Tarot, was the result of a collaboration between esotericist Arthur Edward Waite and artist Pamela Colman Smith, both one-time members of the Order of the Golden Dawn.A concise overview of Tarot meanings and use introduces the reade [...]

    4. Good insight into the most famous Tarot Deck, you are going to learn its story, some features never know before and some other facts on Pamela Colman-Smith. One very good topic treated here is the relationship with theater and her previous work. Also you can get some insight on what made Arthur Waite to make his ideas that were translated into images and his past in the Golden Dawn.

    5. An excellent book that lets you take a look into the life, mind and inspirations of the two people who created the world's most popular Tarot: Pamela Colman Smith and Arthur Waite. Putting this tarot in a historical, artistic and spiritual context , card by card, and revealing its secrets through a lot of details, pictures and drawings, and anecdote, this book makes it appear even richer and more fascinating. It also includes a lot of useful information for beginners, so it can be recommended to [...]

    6. One of the best books I've read on modern Tarot. SotWS gets the reader closer to it's creators and provides a much desired connection to the artist, Colman Smith. I can't say enough how important this book is for the modern Tarotist to have. Like many lifelong students of Tarot greatly influenced by the Waite-Smith creation, for good or bad, I have developed a deep reverence for Pamela Coleman Smiths art and her influence upon the inner/outer landscape of Tarot.

    7. I've been reading tarot for a long time, and I am very familiar with the Waite-Smith deck, or at least I thought I was. I found lots of information in this book that I did not know. I highly recommend this, whether you new at tarot or have been at it a while.*FTC Disclosure: I recieved this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    8. Very informative, although I think best for someone who has some familiarity with the RWS deck and tarot reading, or for anyone who wants to explore how the deck was created. There's a lot of information here and it could have been better organized, but I enjoyed reading this!

    9. I learned a lot from this book and its bibliography has certainly made my to-read list grow. But, my god! The authors need to hire an editor! Their writing is mediocre, redundant and, at times, just plain sloppy.

    10. A jewel for both historians and card readers. Although easily read, it's a book that will take a long time to "finish" with.
