You NEED THIS BOOK!

Don’t waste your credits on any other book (like I did) this is so informative but not boring at all! Great story telling and really helped me cement the cards in my mind! Down to earth and realistic too! Many other books are so impersonal, hard to listen to and yawn inducing! This I loved every minute of!

Pros and Cons

First- I want to say: I love how this book is narrated and structured. It’s easy on the ears and provides great insight and knowledge. However, if you’re just starting out and dabbling with the concept of tarot reading (ahem- like me), not having the accompanying pdf’s included as a download... leaves newbies feeling a bit cheated. For example: There isn’t an option to see the different card “spreads” that the author refers to and speaks of- which may not be a big deal to someone who already has a foundation about tarot reading, but becomes a barrier for the legit beginners. I’m also unsure if pictures of the actual cards the author describes are featured in the book, but if they are- Holy Smokes... what a treat! As for me though, I still enjoyed listening to the book overall, but am left searching for another title with a downloadable pdf as an option.

Great starting point for Tarot

An easy to understand breakdown of each card and story plug-ins from both ancient fables and pop-culture to help remember the symbolism of each. The narrator has a grounded "witchy" voice that made it fun to listen to, in contrast to the some of the other narrators of this genre that can feel a bit airy and hard to take in for "down to earth" kinds of people. This book also lays out some unexpected great advice for people looking to read as a profession, which wasn't what I was originally was looking for, but found to be very helpful when thinking about reading for friends or at parties. This is a great starting point for people who are looking for a card to card walk-through of their deck. I recommend having your deck close by and laying out each card as the author points out characteristics in the illustrations of each.

Insightful and great for beginners

Very insightful and great book for a beginner (me). This audiobook and the physical copy have brought clarity to my reading skills and approach. The narrator was captivating and brought the book to life. I loved this audiobook so much I actually bought the physical copy. I plan to use it further in my tarot study. I loved how the author incorporated her own stories and lessons she’s learned along the way. She also provides great advice and guidance on reading for others.

It just clicked

So, you know when you have that ah-ha moment and things just start clicking into place? That’s what this book did for me. I love the explanations. And simple terms used to help you get it. This would be a great beginner book or even for those who’ve been around the block a time or two. It is like sitting down at the table with your besties and having a conversation.

Refreshing & Helpful for Beginners & Veterans

Kitchen Table Tarot is a well organized, thoughtful and practical guide to the Tarot for beginners and experienced Tarot readers. Melissa Cynova's writing style is conversational and engaging. I've been reading Tarot for about eight years and managed to glean some useful nuggets. Cynova's card interpretations are fresh and earthy, and her non-woo-woo approach is easy to follow. I recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn or review Tarot basics.
