Format: Paperback
I found this book easy to read and understand. It was well set out taking you step by step though your natal chart and relationship charts. It used simple language explaining terms as you went through. The analysis you came up with were very acurate. This is a must for someone starting out in astrology you will learn so much.

How much useful information do you think you could get on a subject as vast as astrology in a format of about 3 inches square? Not much, eh? Well you'd be right. This is not a bad book. There just isn't very much book at all. I can't really see who it is aimed at. It goes into more technical detail about houses and ascendants etc. than you will find in the average "star sign" book, but owing to the format, it can't say anything that useful about these concepts. A handy little book, perhaps, to keep in your loo for visitors. Or for reading on one-stop bus journeys. Interesting, but frustrating. All it has done is make me want to order the full-sized edition. Which is what I thought I had done in the first place. Still, it will fit in a stocking along with the tangerine and the furry soap. And will be just about as useful.

I was surprised (and pleased) to find how thorough this book is. It gives a good clear introduction to all areas of the topic and is a great foundation to then build on with more 'specialist' astrology books to expand your knowledge. Gives a good framework which you can take further if you wish to.

Format: Paperback
As a (now) professional Astrological Author of How to Survive a Pisces, I have a useful reference if I need to clarify a point and will NOT be lending this to any of my clients as I'm unlikely to get it back....
..... (always a good indicator if a book is good, if you lend it and it comes back in days, it's not good, if it never returns, you know it's so good your donor kept it!)
I have the 1999 edition, before the one you're seeing here, and that is still a fantastic book.

Rae has made what can be a difficult subject for beginners. nice and easy-to-understand...and for more experienced Astrologers, it offers information you might need to brush-up on when your mind goes cloudy..

I like Rae's writing style, which is upbeat and positive and she doesn't (gladly) blind you with too much information at once.

A well written and researched book and I highly recommend it:)

I find the advice in this production helpful, humorous, down to earth and thoroughly up-to-date. It is clear and concise on all points, and should help the would be astrologer in everyway that he needs. I have this book on Kindle where it meets my needs. It has a list of contents, but some reader/students may find a hardback product5ion easier for finding particular references

For not reading the small print... I was looking for the larger format edition and was taken aback at how titchy this was. Information contained was also necessarily basic. Still, it did say "miniature edition" so it was exactly as described. delivered well and promptly, I have to add, so no fault at all to the retailer - my bad for failing to comprehend what "miniature edition" meant. It meant "miniature". I hope to come back at some point to get the larger format version I was asking for and will probably try the same seller!

Astrology for Dummies is a great introduction to the complex subject of astrology. The author, Rae Orion, makes the subject accessible to a complete novice like myself. There are many interesting and useful explanations of topics in the subject, including some web addresses of free natal chart websites and contact details of experts who retail great astrology software. I strongly recommend this as casting natal charts and calculating transits is highly complex. I strongly recommend this book

Format: Paperback
Astrology for dummies - a book that clearly identifies it's audience from the outset.

For those who don't know what Tautology means - it is saying the same thing twice using different words. You may have to think about this, and it may well be the case that if you don't get it, then this book is for you, after all.
