Rachel  is considered one of the World’s foremost authorities on the modern interpretation of the Tarot. She is also a poet, an award-winning novelist, and a Tarot card and comic book artist. She has published 12 books on the Tarot, including 78 Degrees of Wisdom (Thorsons, 1998), considered a modern classic and “the Bible of Tarot reading.” Its’ marriage of common sense, wide-ranging knowledge, and esoteric awareness have inspired many tens of thousands of readers worldwide to a deeper knowledge of the Tarot.

She is a member of the American Tarot Association, the International Tarot Society, and the Tarot Guild of Australia. With fellow Tarot author Mary Greer, she has taught at the famed Omega Institute for the past twelve years. She has been conferred the title of “Tarot Grand Master” by the Tarot Certification Board, an independent body located in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As a fiction writer, Pollack has been bestowed many honors and awards, among them the famed Arthur C.

She is a recommended member of PEN International, and has written for numerous publications.

Review:

"At last―a master work by a master teacher! This book answers the core question every tarot reader wants to know, 'what are the earliest meanings of the cards?' Rachel then liberally sprinkles her account with lively anecdotes derived from forty years experience reading the Tarot. It doesn't get any better than this! Rachel Pollack has sorted, evaluated and made connections among the many myths, traditions, legends and conventions surrounding Tarot, crystallizing their essence into core concepts and a modern understanding guaranteed to deepen your readings and study."―Mary K. Greer, author of 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card

"Rachel Pollack's Tarot Wisdom is a master work born of 40 years of learning, teaching, reading and writing about the Tarot. Rachel's love of the cards and their history, mythology, art, stories and yes, wisdom shines through every page."―Ruth Ann & Wald Amberstone, Directors of The Tarot School and authors of Tarot Tips and The Secret Language of Tarot

"Tarot Wisdom provides readers with a guided tour of Tarot that could only be led by Rachel Pollack. It is, by turns, scholarly, personal, humorous, and wise...It's the most lucid and comprehensive series of card-by-card essays since 78 Degrees."―Mark McElroy, author of What's in the Cards for You? and Putting the Tarot to Work

"As is Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, Tarot Wisdom is a must have book for any Tarot library."―Aclectic Tarot

"A phenomenal contribution to the field, written in an approachable style and beatifully designed for newbie and veteran alike. I can't recommend it highly enough. No matter what deck you read with, you should have this book in your collection. I take my hat off to Rachel Pollack and to Llewellyn for this enormous gift to the tarot community."―Leah Samul, ATA Quarterly Journal

"An ambitious undertaking, but one that is unequalled in its scope and brilliance. Tarot Wisdom will transform the way that you look at each and every card."―Silver Wheel, the South Australian Pagan Alliance newsletter

"[Pollack's] writing style is still as engaging and easy as it was 20-some years ago...[Tarot Widom] is just as informative and impressive as Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom."―The Diva Digest

"I can't recommend Tarot Wisdom enough. [Pollack's] insight into the tarot has pushed me into delving deeper into the cards, and as a result, I have discovered many amazing things about myself and the world."―Feminist Review
