I did enjoy the details about every sun sign and moon sign. The section about planets is quite informative. There's also a chapter that explains in details the history and legend behind every sign. I find that entertaining.

However, I did not like the chapter on how to interpret your birth chart. It was not specific enough. For example, my North node is in Taurus and in the 11th House. There was a page which describes my node in the 11th House, even though it was extremely short. Too short, in fact. But there was nothing about my north node being in Taurus. What's the point of me finding out on the CDrom that my North node is in Taurus if it's not being explained in the book?

All other chapters are very, very detailed, except for the chapter that explains how to intrepret your birth chart. It's as if the author spends too much on other chapters that by the time she got to this chapter, she got tired and decided to half-ass it.

I'd say this is good for beginners, but not for high-esteemed astrologers. However, it did motivate me to buy other books on areas, which this book is missing.

    Good for a beginner

    This is good for a beginner. You pretty much look up your personal chart info and read off the different aspects of the chart pertaining to you. This book doesn't show you how to actually build a chart but provides software to get one. It's pretty thorough in covering all aspects of the chart interpretation and is a good intro to someone new to chart reading.

    Great astrology book

    The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need is one of the better astrology books out there. It describes your aspects, planets in houses, the signs your planets are in, and more. Though it doesn't give descriptions for aspects to your ascendant, midheaven, or nodes. I would still recommend this book to people interested in astrology, but I don't think it's the 'only' astrology book you need.

    insight into personal relationships

    My copy of this particular book happens to be falling apart due to the fact that I have utilized it so much. It helps me to understand myself,my children,family,friends,etc. and in a very comprehensive fashion. Even if you do not believe in astrolgy, take a look in the book, you may be suprised.
