None but this one, as far as I know, propose such exquisite and impossible ideas as this: "Our aim is not to arrive at an ultimate truth, but to stop, albeit briefly, at an exception made true." or "Instead of using a sequence of cards to arrive at some form of meaning, meaning-making will be the means through which we arrive at a sequence of cards, in a process that would have the Marseille Tarot shuffling itself."
For those of us nourished by the milk of dada, surrealism, and all that followed, and all that came before .. for those of us who incline towards the artist's, or the poet's sensibility, this book is a delight. It is not, as another reviewer has said, a crib or an introduction to the Tarot. But it would be a great second book to read on the Tarot, wherever you may have begun.
Thank you Enrique for your humor, irony, playfulness and brilliance!
Unlike umpteen tarot-how-tos or recipe books on basic card reading and manipulation of the cards, TAROLOGY (ISBN 978-87-92633-12-5) is for the truly adept tarotist or tarososophist, struck by symbol glut or associationist salad into a state of occult ennui.
If your readings seem staid to the point of boredom, a bit of serious perusal of Enrique Enriquez's TAROLOGY may nudge one out of subconscious doldrums into a wondrous state of poetic afflatus and may, at its very least, encourage tarotists to take lessons from poetry and the poets, those universal editors of the divine utterance or oracular tarot readings.
