Jump from amateur straight to professional with this fast-track guide to reading the tarot. How do you know which interpretation to choose when there are so many possibilities with the tarot cards? This book is the first and only quick-reference tarot guide, which uses a logically progressive technique; schooling the reader in a non-linear fashion as they jump between the pages corresponding to their randomly selected cards. Designed particularly for those wanting to be time-efficient and ambitious in their learning, the book highlights key terms and uses a logic-based key coded system to synthesise what can otherwise be a vast and perplexing array of possibilities when reading the cards in combination. With black and white illustration of each card, the Tarot system opens up a dialogue with our subconscious; the Tarot provides the ultimate form of self-sufficiency, making this book a users' guide to optimising and authenticating our finest, and most precious resource, that which could never be robotically recreated or computerised, the conscious human mind. With AI fast encroaching on all aspects of life not only does this book inform and instruct on the reading of the tarot, but it also develops and trains the centralised logical, analytical, and reasoning mind to work in harmony with our innate and often over-shadowed instinctual and intuitive abilities.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera.

Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world - an insider's story of excess and danger, glamour and greed. Molly Bloom formed the most elite high-stakes poker game Hollywood had ever seen - she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to the table.

In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twentysomething from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game in existence. Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly's game became the game for those in the know-celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exquisite restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world's most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her and she lost everything.

Molly's Game is a behind the scenes look at Molly's game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.

Benny Binion was many things: a cowboy, a pioneering casino owner, a gangster, a killer, and founder of the hugely successful World Series of Poker. From a Texas backwater, Binion rose to prominence on a combination of vision, determination, and brutal expediency. His formula was simple: run a good business, cultivate the big boys, kill your enemies, and own the cops. Through a mix of cold-bloodedness, native intelligence, folksiness and philanthropy, Binion became one of the most revered figures in the history of gambling, and his showmanship, shrewdness and violence would come to dominate the Vegas scene. Veteran journalist Doug Swanson uses once-secret government documents and dogged reporting to show how Binion destroyed his rivals and outsmarted his adversaries, playing a crucial role in the shaping of modern Las Vegas.

Alcatraz Island is home to one of the most formidable federal prisons ever conceived. In its history, no one was ever acknowledged as having escaped from the prison. As guards, it's your job to foil escape attempts by gathering information on plans and capturing the ringleaders.

Mystery Rummy: Escape from Alcatraz, game #5 in the "Mystery Rummy" series from Mike Fitzgerald, consists of 129 cards in two decks: the Plans Deck of 84 escape plan cards and 14 escapee cards, and the Action Deck of 31 action cards. The goal of the game is to earn points by helping foil escape plans. Players gather information by melding matching plan cards or playing off an existing plan. When players collect eight matching plan cards and identify the plan's mastermind, they can foil the escape plan, capture the culprit, and score points.

The first player to reach 100 or more points at the end of a round wins.
