It's full of profound musings and is refreshing in that it doesn't spend lots of time analysing the symbology of the cards. Instead it uses the card as abasisi for spiritual contemplation.
What's really nice is the author address' you as 'unknown friend'
I really recommend this book if you're looking for something that is different from your usual tarot books
A joy of a book indeed.

The author is not so anonymous these days; Valentin Tomberg ... an interesting fellow.
Also look out for the slim companion Volume entitled 'The Wandering Fool'.
