This book tells in a a very complicated and very lengthy way how to do something EXTREMELY simple.( progress the Sun and angles of a birth chart approximately 1 degree per year of life and compare it with the natal points and planetary positions ). This is basically the same technique as "Solar Arc Directions"..but since it is maybe a hair or so more accurate due to the seemingly overly complicated calculations..it is called instead "Primary Directions". (or am i missing something here? please correct me if i am mistaken...but method explained in 200 or so pages in this book is basically the same as "Solar Arc Direction" method..moving the Sun and angles roughly 1 degree for each year of life?) Why need 200 pages of just paper with typing that repeats over and over about the most minute details of a technique that could hardly be any easier is just to me a way to sell a book with a nice painting on the cover. I also suspect the other 5 star reviews of this book..as this is just so overly complicated a book for such as simple thing that it is like instead a study of a mathematical problem that results in nothing much of anything more than what is already known by the "Solar Arc Directions" and not a study of the techinques of progressions used in Astrology.
Save your money and look into other books that describes shortly the "Solar Arc" technique (or look for how to do it on the internet if need to) Better to look for books that describe much more precise progressed techniques such as Secondary ,Tertiary, or Minor Progressions.( "Progressions Directions and Rectification" by Zipporah Pottenger Dobyns , for example, will sum up in a few pages if even that what this book pain stakingly explains in 200 or so pages.
