A quirky romp through the Tarot with original methods of working with the cards presented by a seasoned tarot reader. - Mary K. Greer, author of Tarot for Your Self. This is more than just an excellent guide to the Tarot, it's also an inspiration for anyone who wishes to learn how to think creatively. - Michael J. Gelb, author of How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci Vincent Pitisci kws how to bring the cards alive. His quirky interpretations of individual cards in the famous Rider pack--for example, the Page of Wands as a golf caddy holding the flag--model for each of us how we too might find something wild and unusual, and then use that as a springboard to find a message in the card. He shows us how to play with and tease an image that may at first glance seem far from the question of the reading, such as what the Hermit might say about opening a restaurant. And the conversations he imagines with himself and several of the cards model for us a truly creative approach to engaging deeply with the pictures. - Rachel Pollack, author of 78 Degrees of Wisdom Vincent Pitisci has written Genius of the Tarot, a brilliant book about the genius of the Tarot and how you can use the Tarot to discover your hidden thoughts and images. Think of the Tarot as the candle and Vincent's book as the match that lights the candle that illuminates these thoughts. - Michael Michalko, author of Cracking Creativity, the secrets of creative genius Genius of the Tarot has all of the tradition, wisdom, meaning and deep significance a student could want, plus the added blessing of the teacher himself drawing the curtain aside with a laugh and letting in the sun. This book is filled with light. Now that's genius. -Ophelia Julien, Pararmal Novelist The easygoing, conversational tone puts concepts, techniques and suggestions within reach, and the author's decades of experience help to demystify the Tarot. However, seasoned Tarot readers will also find much to ponder here, as Pitisci tilts the usual perspectives and unearths new meaning in well-traveled territory. A worthy addition to any Tarot library, likely to teach new tricks to even the most experienced readers. - Kirkus Reviews
