    Not good

    This book had nothing to share with the reader astrologically speaking. Most of the content was made upnof present to buy your boss, your co worker, your employee based on their sun sign

    A Great Resource!

    Upside: To say I am selective concerning Astrology books is on target. You see I had read one of the best Astrology books written, Sun Signs by Linda Goodman, in my teen years (circa late 1970's) and no one has come close to improving on her work in my opinion. Until now.

    I enjoyed reading Everyday Astrology by Gary Goldschneider. This book is destined for my desk where I can reference it easily. I found it to be easy to read, easy to understand. Here let me show you.

    As I thumbed through Everyday Astrology, I noticed the book was broken into sections and then into lean paragraphs. I had seen this formatting of information somewhere else. Yes, you guessed it in Linda's book. In the last paragraph of his Introduction, Gary tells us that not since Linda Goodman's Sun Signs , published in the late 1960's, has a book been published with this concept and formatting. Thank you Gary for acknowledging Linda.

    Everyday Astrology gives you exactly what it claims to.bits of information to help you everyday. The bits of information are broken into sections. Sections that are viable in today's world. Here is an example, 'Aries ~ Work, Love, Friends & Family'. Now Gary could have stopped here. I mean 'Aries ~ Work' what more could there be? How about a subsection about 'The Aries Boss' or even <gasp> 'Asking the Aries Boss for a Raise'? Yes, Gary tells us how to ask for a raise and what our chances are for success.

    Just what the overworked reader needs.information that is quick to find and easy to read yet makes an impact in their life. Let's say you want a keyword to sum up an Aries Boss. Gary has provided 'Strengths~Weaknesses~Interactive Style' as a keyword section (located in the sidebar for each section). Each sidebar section have three focus words, which I find great for reflection.

    Gary writes about each sign and the parts they play in our life with the strength of knowledge based on years in this field yet his words do not leave you feeling 'oh my goodness I wish I was a(n) <insert whatever astrological sign here>..', as some Astrology books seem to do. Gary shows that not one sign is better than another sign. And we can use Astrology to better our understanding of others, not to manipulate them but to allow everyone to have a better Now.

    Downside: The book cover has general keywords for each sign in color below the Astrological symbol. This was the only part of the book I did not care for. Why? The font size is small especially when in color on a dark gray background. Hard to read.

    Bottom-line: A great reference tool. Enjoyable read. I recommend Everyday Astrology by Gary Goldschneider.

    Disclosure: This is a non-paid review.
