    Dummies Delight!

    This book is a shallow treatment of astrology and isn't as complete as it seems to be. Of note is the absence of several schools of astrology. Too little is given for each concept. The title implies you are a dummy which, in itself, is an insult. This one just doesn't make it. There are many other astrology books for beginners and professionals alike. Save your money!

    Perfect for beginning astrologers

    A wonderful book if you haven't looked into astrology before. Full of illustrations, examples, tips, and facts, written so that it's easy to understand. I highly recommend it.
