I had expected this book to introduce me to Vedic Astrology: the basics, and in an understandable way for a Western astrologer. This book does not do that. In fact I am not sure what it does. It is only a few score pages, printed on cheap stock and is not organized in what I would consider a pragmatic way.
I've since bought a number of Vedic books so I have a better idea now of the ideas put forth by this book and this author. They are simple enough I suppose for a beginner but only if, perhaps, that beginner is an Indian and has already grown up in a culture where such astrology is commonplace. I think it is useless for a Westerner.
