The Parkers also broadcast and lecture throughout Europe, Australia, Canada, and the United States.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Just being introduced now, DK's new "Keep It Simple" guides are aimed at the "Dummies" and "Idiots" market. With this book by astrology experts Julia (The Astrologer's Handbook) and Derek (Dreaming: Remembering, Interpreting, Benefiting) Parker, it has a sure winner. Excellent all around, the book is easy to use, contains accurate information, and features great illustrations. It is simple enough for beginners yet packed with information so that intermediate students of astrology will return to it as a reference tool. The authors introduce a quick, easy, innovative way to draw a birth chart that will satisfy any beginner who may have been stymied by the many calculations needed in traditional chart making. Their descriptions of the signs and planets, using ancient myths associated with each, make this sometimes overwhelming subject clear. Their style has a way of helping readers remember the nuances necessary for accurate chart interpretation. This book will get a lot of use in any public library, even those that already own Parker's Astrology (DK, 1994). Highly, highly recommended.--Marija Sanderling, Rochester P.L., NH Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
