Overview

Many people have long suspected, as astrologers believe, that the day you were born affects your personality. While no one knows exactly how or why, birthdays do tend to be uncannily accurate predictors of psychological tendencies. The Secret Language of Birthdays by Gary Goldschneider and Joost Elffers describes in detail the characteristics and quirks of personality associated with being born on a particular day of the year. The 366 personality profiles in The Secret Language of Birthdays are based on a combination of astrology, numerology, the tarot, and Gary Goldschneider's many years of observation of more than 14,000 people, including contemporary and historical figures, Goldschneider's theory of "personology" proposes that all of life is cyclical: people born on the same day occupy the same point in the year's cycle and thus share certain characteristics.

Learn what famous personalities were born on your birthday... Study your astrological sign and your personology profile... Your strengths, weaknesses, and major concerns will be illuminated while you are given practical advice and spiritual guidance. While you study your profile, you will find it hard to resist examining those of family, friends, colleagues, and favorite celebrities. No one who reads this book can feel left out, since each one of us has a birthday. The Secret Language of Birthdays may help to bring people to a better understanding of themselves and of others, including those living now, those who have gone before, and even those yet to come. The Secret Language of Birthdays is truly a celebration of our differences and similarities as human beings.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!! And I recommend it to everyone. This book eliminates all the guess and hint work that other atrology books offer, it pinpoints specific characteristics to those born on that day. I enjoy this book because it gives you an aid in dealing with and understanding people. Not to say it will pull something out of a hat but will help to have a more thorough understanding of the people around you and why they do/act/feel some of the ways they do.

I received The Secret Language of Birthdays several years ago and still use it today. Owning this book is like having a dictionary that defines people instead of words. When you read about your birthday or someone else's you find out how true to our zodiac symbols we can really be. If you're interested in astrology or know some else who is this is definantly a great buy.

The personality profiles are so accurate. I enjoyed looking up friends and family birthdays. Informative and fun reading!

This book is extremely accurate. If you are skeptical, you will be converted! I look up everyone I know and am shocked and amazed at how detailed and accurate almost every person is. Sometimes, you read the stuff you don't want to admit about yourself, but you know its right! Amazing buy and great for continual reference. Often times, I re-read my own birthday just to keep things in perspective. It's not a one-time-read type of book, you will enjoy rediscovering yourself over and over and over....

This is a fun book, and some descriptions are fairly true, but I found most to not be so accurate. I guess if you try hard enough, you can fit most anyone into the descriptions. If you don't take it too seriously, and read it for conversation and fun, it fulfills it's purpose.

this book is incredibly accurate. i usually only look at horoscopes on the off chance they will get something right, but this book is right on nearly all counts. i found accurate descriptions and insights to people i knew, and to myself. if youre going to get any horoscope book, this is the one to get.

I scanned through this book while in the waiting room at my doctor's office. Being a Gemini and definitely having that 'twin' (dual) personality, this book gave answers to questions I've always had. I looked up my siblings birthdays as well, and they were equally as acurate. It was fun and informative and a great resource! I can't wait to get a copy for myself because I have many people to research.

Almost 13 years ago a friend gave me this book for my birthday and I refer to it throughout the year, every year to gain new insights and perspectives on friends, family, co-workers and myself.  I find it to be amazingly accurate and of great help in achieving some objectivity when it comes to strengths and weaknesses (mine as well as others).  That information has proven  invaluable  in terms of my own growth and improving my relationships with those I love and interact with. Its the perfect gift to give oneself or someone you love.  It truly is the gift that keeps on giving!

I've heard so much about this book and just had to get it. I've found it so interesting and just completely right on for all of our family and friends birthdays. We brought it along to a party and found it so entertaining to read everyone's birthdate. No two birthdates are the same and each one was so true! Much beter understanding of yourself, friends and even enemies.

This book was amazing. I couldn't get enough, I read up on all my family. When my daughter had to pick a date to be induced, I went to the book to pick what I thought would be the best day. I have to say, he was an exceptional baby and is a brilliant toddler.
