Has anyone got this book?


I saw this book on Amazon and wondered if anyone else has it. It's kind of spendy, so I don't want to get it if it's not that good. I've got some Amazon gift certificates from my trade thread that I can use if I decide to get it. I've started learning Lenormand cards, so this book and Sylvie Steinbach's book interest me.

Yes, it's the Marios book called THE GAME OF DESTINY - Fortune Telling with Lenormand Cards. It's about twice the price of Sylvie Steinbach's book. I just wonder if it's worth the money or not.

The Game of Destiny is discussed in the first couple of pages of a very lengthy thread: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=86252.

Hi Solitaire-
I don't have the Game of Destiny, and have read mixed reviews. I can very strongly recommend Sylvie's book, as I've been studying with it, and with Sylvie here. It's very organised and detailed, and I can promise you that if you go through her book and the threads here, you'll have an in depth understanding of a fascinating new language.
One thing I would say, is that you're better off getting only one, and getting that method down first (I would recommend Sylvie's ) before buying others, because otherwise it will just confuse you.
There are also new daily blogs based on The Secrets of the Lenormand Oracle that are very helpful in expanding on your practice with them;
check out these links:

Best wishes, LisaW

Sylvie's book is much more in depth and practical than Mario's.....I own them both but for very different reasons! (Mario's book has a very ATR - African Traditional Religions and Brazilian slant to it!)

If you are strictly reading Lenormand the convential way.....stick to Sylvie. I highly recommend it and think it is worth every penny! Mario's book pretty much has everything you can find online for free (and the editing/proof-reading leave a LOT to be desired!)...

I'm sorry to say that none of them are good books on Lenormand. I would rather buy the treppener's course or Britta's course instead.
