Lon gives an overview of the book:
The Hebrew Qabalah forms the foundation upon which the Western Hermetic arts (astrology, tarot, geomancy, and the various branches of ceremonial magick) are constructed. THe tarot is a visual representation of qabalistic fundamentals and is the common denominator betwee the various Hermetic arts. One could even say the tarot is the DNA of the Qabalah. Properly decoded it reveals not only the mysteries of the Qabalah but also those of all other Qabalah-based systems.
