After reading the glowing reviews on Amazon for this book, I knew I had to check it out. And I'm really glad I did check it out--out of the library, that is, instead of buying it. This book failed to live up to the promise of all of these good reviews.
Here is the book I thought I was getting (this book would get five stars): A detailed explanation of a large number of spreads. This explanation would include suggestions for choosing a spread and the strengths and weaknesses of various spreads. The spreads would be organized by theme, cross-referenced in any of a number of ways (number of cards used, spreads using whole decks vs. partial decks, spreads to use with unique decks, etc.). Each spread would include one or two sample spreads that would give you a flavor of what it could do.
Unfortunately, here is what "Power Tarot" is: A book of card meanings that just so happens to have a large listing of spreads. The first (and larger) portion of the book is dedicated to card meanings while the spreads (ostensibly the focus of the books) are relegated to the back. The spreads are organized not by theme but by number of cards in the spread, making it rather difficult to locate a spread you might want to use in a given situation. Most importantly (and most disappointingly), beyond the name of the spread no information or analysis is given as to why you might choose a given spread. There are no tips for reading the different spreads, no comparisons between spreads, nothing.
It is true that there are more than 100 spreads in the book, which is an impressive collection. This feat is the only reason I give the book two stars instead of one.

Format: Paperback
I loved this book. I bought it for spreads and was more disatisfied there because it just shows layouts and what each card position refers to rather than going in more depth how to read card combinations or having an example. I would have given less that 5 stars if not that the rest of the book was so helpful and insightful. It's contains definitions of what each card means if it appears in: a general reading, a work reading, a love reading, a finance reading, a health reading, a spirituality reading, and an empowerment reading. It also explains what cards are good for yes/no/maybe, how to use cards to determine timing, what to do when a reading/card combination does not make sense (he suggests its not the time to read them, and how to approach a client on this and what to say). Also, it is written by someone who worked 900 lines (which I do) so he understands you need to be able to read fast and cold etc. He also explains how readings are not written in stone.
I mostly liked that his card interpretations offered something positive to relay to your client even if the card drawn is negative. In most of his definitions, he offers what will shift negative energy around and what will keep the positive energy flowing. Its very positive and inspiring, especially if you would like to read in more of a way to help the client shift patterns and blocks rather than just telling them outcomes.

Let me start off by saying this book provides far more than just Tarot spreads. Admittedly, the promise of 100 spreads was the reason I bought this book in the first place. As I began my journey reading Tarot, I needed spreads to practice my skills--only knowing the common Past/Present/Future spread. There were spreads online, but I wanted a resource in book form.
Suprisingly, out of 288 pages, only 84 pages contain spreads--and they're in the back. The authors show you how to do a Yes/No spread, and which cards represent yes, which cards represent no and those that represent maybe. The rest of the spreads are categorized by the number of cards, spanning from the single "Card a Day" spread to the 24 card Double Horoscope Spread.
Spreads include Birthday Spread, Child Spread, Prosperity Spread, Horoscope Spread (covering all 12 Houses of the Astrological Chart), Chakra Spread (a card for each chakra plus a meditation card), Relationship Spread, Wish Spread, Career Spread, and New Relationship Spread.
My two favorites are the Mirror Spread and the Treasure Chest Spread.
The authors have this to say about the Mirror Spread: "Quite often, the qualities we dislike in another person are qualities in ourselves we aren't crazy about, either. In this way, the Mirror Spread addresses our shadow selves as well as our projections. The fifth position, what is really there, is actually a summation of a relationship's weakness or strengths.

I bought this book shortly after purchasing my very first tarot deck. I did not know how complex the Tarot Cards were, so I thought "Nah, I don't need a book telling me what the cards mean and what kind of spreads to give". Wrong! I purchased the book mainly because of all the different Spreads it offered. And I have used most of them already! Whether you need a Spread to figure out the energies for the Day or a Spread about your Love Life or Career, the book has it for you! It has 1 card spread, and 23 card spreads, all that you will ever ask for. The best part of the book is it has an indepth explanation for every card in the Tarot, both the Major and the Minor Arcana. It talks about the Card as a Whole, and it then proceeds into explaining what the Card means when it is applied to your Work life, Love, Life, Financial Life, Health Life, Spirituality, and Empowerment. I have never found a Tarot Card book that accurately and adequately describes the cards such as this. If you are a beginning tarot card reader, this is the book that will propel you into advancement
