In his opening chapter he says he is as qualified as anyone to comment on the subject of the Thoth Tarot. The first part consists of an introduction to the background philosophy behind the Thoth Tarot and is by far the best section of the Book.
Section two starts on page 80 and consists of the descriptions of the Thoth Cards themselves. All of these sections are extremely useful in giving the reader an insight into both Mr Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris and their work. Again all of this information is very useful to the reader. He rarely offers any of his own views and insights and here lies my main gripe with the book. Since in the first chapter he states he is as qualified as anyone to discuss the Thoth Tarot having been part of the O.
O for years, he then looses confidence and refuses to explore the cards in any depth and this is a great disappointment after all the build up in section one.
The amount of space offered for each card is too little in my opinion and this is made worse by the fact that he chooses to describe the original Golden Dawn card without actually giving us a picture of the card!
Im a big believer in a decent photo and the ones of the tarot cards in the book are small and are of poor quality. On the left page above the sold line is all introduction , with some information on the Golden Dawn Card which we dont have a picture of. This pattern repeats to varying degrees throughout the minor arcana cards.
