I've been a fan of yours for a long time! I'd just like to say, briefly, that your BIT Tarot method blew me away when I used it (more than once) to explore a spinal cord injury I had four years ago. You should be so proud that your creativity and ability can change lives. :-). -- Jennifer Moscone, Cape Elizaeth, Maine
It was an honor to include your book in our recommended reading section [in the Book of Shadows, the companion to the ShadowFox Tarot] - I devoured it as soon as it arrived, and I recommend it highly. You did a wonderful job on it! Brightest Blessings, -- Jennifer ShadowFox
Janet, Your perspective is enriching, unique, and expansive. I really enjoyed reading a sample of your method and look forward to getting your book. -- Kooch Daniels, author of Tarot D'Amour and Matrix Meditations
I have always appreciated your website, Amazon reviews and service to the community; it is a very important and unique contribution. I have just started reading your book and am really taken with this very innovative approach to reading Tarot. I think it's this very creativity and versatility that attracted me to Tarot. The more of it I explore, the more taken with it I become. -- William H., Pennsylvania
I received the Back in Time Tarot book a few days ago from Amazon and read it cover to cover; it was that well-written and compelling! I have dozens of Tarot books--written by all the "greats" and "masters"--- I've amassed over the years, but I really can't recall any book being as practical and meaningful as this one. Your method is truly inspired.I think it is the freshest Tarot idea I have heard in years, and I have done 5-6 BIT analyses in the 2 weeks since I read the book. BTW, it's a superb way to really get to know a deck intimately.-- Emmy K.
Ms. Boyer, I'm a Brazilian Tarot reader and I believe your work is very important to all of us. I've learned a lot from your book. I do believe Back in Time Tarot is a very important book and a great source, for all of us professionals, to renew our passion for the cards. Have a happy New Year and best regard's from Rio de Janeiro! -- Alexandre Tarólogo, Brazil
I have many many Tarot books, probably not as many as you(!), and your BIT book stands above them all, in my opinion. I know I keep on about it, but what is it: the personal factor or your great writing or your insights and freedom with it? Probably all of them. I studied with BOTA for several years and must admit that since leaving them a couple of years ago that I found myself hemmed in a little with what Tarot was and what could be done with it. I think therefore that your book presented some keys of liberation in my perception of Tarot. -- Al, U.K.
Hey Janet, I was reading your book Back in Time Tarot. I live in Lebanon so I bought it from a library and loved your technique. It's simple and easy. It's been almost 2 weeks that I have finished. In about a week or 2 I have a speech that I have 2 give. It's about tarot, for the students of a class I'm taking at uni, so thank you for writing the book. It has helped me much. -- Mario Ghrayeb, Lebanon

The Back in Time Tarot Book:
Picture the Past, Experience the Cards, Understand the Present
WHO: Whether you're completely new to Tarot or are an advanced user, there's something for everyone in The Back in Time Tarot Book (Hampton Roads)! My innovative BIT (Back in Time) Method encourages you to experience Tarot cards on your own terms using memories, movies, pop culture, history, literature and more! In fact, many have written to me saying that my book has helped them come to terms with painful situations, deal with creative/personal blocks, understand their nighttime dreams, cultivate a practice of spiritual reflection, gain objectivity/insight into puzzling issues, and nurture their soul.
HOW: Using the Tarot deck of your choice, you can make any deck truly your "own" by connecting with the cards via your memories, overheard conversations, news items, biographical sketches, movies, books and more. Gone are hundreds of complicated, esoteric meanings you have to memorize. Instead, I offer an interactive, intuitive approach which allows you to "feel the truth" of the cards on your own terms.
WHY: Because for far too long, learning Tarot has been shrouded in mystery, esoterica and complicated theories. It can be difficult to apply everyday situations to mysterious card imagery. So why not start with YOU--and your memories, favorite books, historical events, movies and so on--for learning the cards outwardly.
