Editorial Reviews


"Software that does dials can outperform both speed and accuracy...but it won't teach you as much as working through real examples by hand. What you get from that is the think time that helps you absorb the information your teacher is trying to impart to you.j The teacher, in this case, Maria Kay Simms, also has a good deal of experience with her subject, and thus is worth listening to. The original edition of this book has probably taught the subject to thousands of students and its success is founded on the simple principle that a picture is worth a thousand words. Uranian astrology and Cosmobiology are both complex and highly visual...oriented toward answering very explicit questions that often can be timed down to the minute...Far from being outdated by the advance in computer between the first edition (1989) and now. Maria's book is new and fresh and provides a great learning environment." --Kenneth Irving, American Astrology, March 2002

If you're trying to master the 90 degree dial techniques...this book is an absolute must-have and probably the next best thing to a live teacher...Writing style throughout is extremely clear. Those of you who are visually oriented will also appreciate the numerous well-done illustrations. This is truly a user-friendly book and is both fun and extremely easy to follow without being simplistic...Even if you have the first may want to have a look at the latest version. There are 16 additional pages of instruction, much of it on Cosmobiology and on using dial techniques for rectification. I recommend Dial Detective as both a reference and a teaching aid. --Donna Van Toen, NCGR Memberletter, April-May 2002

Ms.Simms book is an excellent introduction to cosmobiology and uranian astrology. She explains the logical reasoning behind cosmobiology and uranian astrology in an open, honest, left brain and right brain manner. She makes the subject utterly logical and enthralling. I recommend anything she writes.

Dial Dectective is a very good teaching tool and first time instruction booklet on the use of the Dial. If a person has only a basic knowledge of astrology and termology I would reduce the rating to 2 1/2 stars. Even the author stated that one must have a working knowledge of astrology. Charts, steps and bibliography sources are excellent. I am happy with the purchase.
