5.0 out of 5 stars Vedic Astrology Simply Put 10 Sep 2011
I cant understand why nobody has reviewed this book yet... it is lovely!
The physical appearance of the book itself is beautiful, an unusual size and full of wonderful colour and pictures, not to mention the enclosed CD.
I haven't long had the book, so have not read through it entirely but it seems very comprehensive and simply put as it states in the title, just right for a curious newby like me.
I will definitely be investigating the authors other works when I have finished this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of this book 27 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately this book wasn't that good how I thought. Book is very illustrated and description about planets and houses is very primitive. If you want learn real Joytish astrology, than this book isn't good, even if you looking for basis. If you looking astrology just for fun - than it's good :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Vedic Astrology 30 Nov 2012
By Ethan G
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ive never read a book on Vedic Astrology before so decided to go for this one which also comes with a free Astrology Software CD to generate your own birth charts. Vedic Astrology Simply Put is beautifully illustrated on every page. There is alot of information here and broken up into bite size chunks so as not to overload you. The differences between Vedic and European astrology are explained really well clearing up alot of confusion for me. Do not think this will be to basic, in fact as it went on it became more and more advanced as the book progresses. Levacy, is clearly very experienced and knowlegable about this vast subject and you will be able to interpret your own and others birth charts very well with this book. The supplied software is helpfull because its accurate and genuine unlike some stuff you see for free online but the downside is you cant print out or save the charts as far as I can see, unless you take a screen shot that is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 17 April 2007
By Lissa Coffey, Host of coffeytalk.com - Published on Amazon.com
William Levacy is brilliant. In this new book he breaks down Vedic Astrology into easy-to-understand concepts - looking at each house, each planet, and each sign individually, and explaining how they relate to the overall chart. Vedic astrology is absolutely fascinating. This book is wonderful. Also covered is a key to Vedic forecasting, remedial measures, the deities, and so much more. The illustrations are suitable for framing. Gorgeous 4-color all the way through. Highly recommended! William Levacy is on the panel of experts at [...].

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and wisdom 17 April 2007
By Asta Ola Halldorsdottir - Published on Amazon.com
This book is like a diamond among course rocks. It is both beautiful and dutiful. If you love astrology you will love this book, it is simply put as the title indicates, but it explains mythology and old traditions of India together with astrology also in a simple way. The title of this book was not tempting, but William Levacy is one of my favorite authors and I decided to buy it anyway, but from now on it will not be stored in a bookshelf, it will hold a good place on my desk for my own delight.

By Marci Shimoff - Published on Amazon.com
This is a fun and engaging book for all students of Vedic astrology. The principles of Vedic wisdom and philosphy that underlie Vedic astrology are made easy to understand. I also love the illustrations and the beautiful art work. I am enjoying studying Vedic astrology with this well-written, wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars its not the vedic astrology that makes it special it is the spiritual depth of it that is brilliant 10 May 2007
By Raja Gursahani - Published on Amazon.com
I once attended your class once at an ACVA conference and really enjoyed it. It had to do with relationship matching. your depth is always good in class. well I just read your latest book vedic astrology simply put and its amazing. I happen to be a vedic astrologer as well and what dawned on me despite my advance nature on the subject is that this book despite being geared to novices is profoundly spiritual. I love your definition of liberation and enlightenment. Your understanding of these definitions and your writings on general indian philosopy gives me hope in humanity and how we can progress spiritually. I think your book is so important for humanity and will have huge impact on America as well. May America open up to vedic culture and its depth and power! You are the first person of western origin that has so openly explained it in such a wonderful and understandable manner that it can have great impact on humanity and the course of this country as well as other nations. Most importantly its a beautiful book on indian philosophy because by using the systematic and scientific approach of vedic astrology, you can start to unravel the scientific basis behind vedic philosophy. If only academics in religion would now attempt to understand this wonderful science and philosophy of humanity. may they glow in the science and philosophy of light!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Knowledge and Artwork 9 April 2007
By E. J. Tavasci - Published on Amazon.com
I'm absolutely mesmerized by the artwork contained in the book, "Vedic Astrology Simply Put"...each illustration is brilliant in its depiction of the sublime knowledge presented. Even after all these years of oh so many Vedic Astrology readings, I still find it difficult to hold on to the most simplistic aspects of my chart. That said...I plan to use this book as a study guide...should be fun.
