It's been a long time since I was as excited and intrigued by a new 'how-to' book on reading the Tarot. Ben-Dov describes the Tarot as a work of art, through whose details a full range of human experiences can be revealed. The book features the Marseilles Tarot deck—a deck that's gaining greater interest and appreciation among English-speaking Tarotists. [Additionally, Ben-Dov has created what I believe to be the most elegant restoration of the classic Conver Marseille deck available, The CBD Tarot de Marseille, which process aided him in his close attention to detail in the cards.[

What has been notably missing in English Tarot literature are good, non-Waite-based meanings for the four suits. You need look no further. The focus here is on reading the cards through the scenarios one perceives when looking at the images. For the Majors, Ben-Dov says the possibilities are open. Nevertheless, he points out valuable interpretive perspectives derived from symbolic,... Read more
Anybody who has shuffled Yoav Ben Dov's tarot de Marseille feels at home. The images are crisp and gentle. The deck slips around with an ease that mirrors the flow of the symbolic universe, or perhaps, like a mirror where the symbolic universe flows.

Feeling at home in a house of mirrors is an image I would like to keep in mind while reading Yoav 's book: Tarot, The Open Reading. Tarot books are like amusement parks: we enter them knowing exactly what we will find while secretly hoping to be surprised. Yoav's book delivers the thrill of the familiar while packing the bang of a few surprises. The eternal beginner gets to ride the Bumper Cars of tarot's history and the Mechanical Bull of tarot meanings. Those who suffer from vertigo can take it slow and go around in the Carousel of court cards or take a spin in the Teacups of pips. Yoav takes both the French and the English traditions through a Tunnel of Love inviting us to peek at their (rather incestuous) hanky panky... Read more
After reading dozens of books on the subject – or should I say, lists of random meanings and rituals spiced up with rambling new age-ish gibberish- some people might feel like giving up on studying tarot, unless, of course, they find the right book to read. I honestly think there are very few books on tarot that are worth their price, and Mr. Ben Dov’s The Open Reading is one of those. Since much has been said in the previous reviews, I will just list my three good reasons to buy the book:

- An anti-dogmatic and compelling approach
While some chapters of the book are devoted to finding the possible meanings of each card, this is done in order to introduce the reader to the author’s method of understanding tarot. But, as a matter of fact, there is no such a thing as an absolutly “correct” meaning. This is not to say that it’s unimportant that a card shows up instead of another one just because the same thing could be signified by... Read more
