There is so much available these days in terms of tarot decks, oracles, books, DVDs and even iPhone/iPad apps! There are literally thousands of decks out there, and likewise books on all aspects of tarot learning and understanding. In all these categories there are items aimed at beginners, others on specialist subjects, and even academic texts. So it's often nice to get a few opinions before making your choices.
