This review is from: Aspects In Astrology: A Comprehensive guide to Interpretation (Kindle Edition)
Even though it seemed comprehensive when looking at the contents page and flicking across the book, I find many of the statements untrue to the delineation of my own chart. For example, I have a semi-square between Sun and Venus but my father is the opposite of refined and artistic, the rest of the descriptions concerning him on Pg 102 is untrue to the extreme! And I was never daddy's little girl since we never had a close relationship to begin with. It feels like Sue was getting it right here and wrong there. Was she trying to do a scatter-shot? It is quite disappointing! The bit about sibling rivalry in Mercury-Mars person seems untrue to me, there wasn't much of it, only VERY LITTLE mentioning of my bro being better than myself by mom. Also, although I write quickly, I talk slowly, but Pg 163 says that Mercury-Mars people talk quick. When the book says that the Jupiter-Saturn person does not always reject the belief system in which they were raised (and these aspects are prevalent in regular church-goers), I am an opposite of it. I had changed my religious subscriptions many times over, from conservative Protestantism where I was born in, to Agnosticism, to Atheism, to liberal Protestantism, to Apostolic Movement, and finally to Mystical, Eclectic Pentecostalism. I used to regularly attend church, but now I only visit the Catholic Church at certain times to be blessed by the holy water and then go out straight away...
Well, it does provide good information about the planets and aspects, but when it comes to the particular, there are too many errors.

You must realize that the whole chart covers an infinite range of potentials and that we are the person who has chosen a given path based on all the possibilities in the birth chart. I would say that these are not errors, per se, but there are so many options and you must bear in mind houses, signs, types of aspect, progressions and transits - the same aspect can manifest itself in 1000 charts in 1000 different ways and books on interpretation can inevitably only suggest a few possibilities as examples.

I know that, it's basically the first lesson astrologers have to learn, but I believe that people deserve to know that the book is not spot-on. This book adds to my studies, but it's not sufficient alone for this subject.
