I only gave this 4 stars because I think the format and production of the previous edition was better than this one. Somehow, the book was more flexible, easier to open and read, and the print 'sat' better on the page. HOWEVER, as for CONTENT, this book should get TEN STARS OR MORE! Absolutely inspirational, essential reading for anyone interested in the wisdom of astrology, Western or Eastern. I have read it many times, and will read it again and again, I'm sure.
