Book Description

Before 1968, astrology as we know it had a very limited following in the United States and around the world. It was the 1968 publication of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs that changed that forever. Newspapers began running astrology columns, and Goodman herself contributed insert pieces to the larger mass circulation women's magazines. An increasingly larger number of people knew their sign (as well as yours) and began to study astrological tendencies.

Since its publication, Linda Goodman's Sun Signs quickly established itself as the worldwide introductory bible to astrology for beginner and expert alike. The book's simple organizational technique made it easy for everyone to follow and understand, organized sign-by-sign, the Man, Woman, Child, Boss, and Employee.

This edition of Goodman's groundbreaking work has been fully updated to make the references to people in it current, and her magical first-person prose has been preserved, keeping the book's original punch.

This ebook edition of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs is the first time that this classic has been available in e-book format.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Linda Goodman is a native of West Virginia. She popularized astrology with the publication of her book Linda Goodman's Sun Signs in 1968, which is the only astrology book to ever appear on The New York Times bestseller list. Since then, it has sold tens of millions of copies worldwide and is the single most widely read introduction to astrology available.

Ten years after the success of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, Goodman published Linda Goodman's Love Signs, which answered the question posed by almost every reader of astrology--how does my sign relate and interface with the twelve other signs of the zodiac? Linda Goodman's Love Signs was as big an international success as was Linda Goodman's Sun Signs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to astrology October 31, 2000
By Casca
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was skeptical about astrology until I read this book.It converted me, and I got into a serious study of the subject.When I read about my sun sign (Aquarius) in this book I was bowled over by Linda's penetrating observations.Astrology tells us much more about personality than psychology ever can, especially when it is made so accessible by Linda.She writes in a very readable manner, and has an enormous appreciation of the quirks and foibles of human nature.Linda gives generous servings of a delicious sense of humor.For example, many Librans, she says, have dimpled knees, "but be careful.Very few girls will believe you when you tell them that you were staring at their knees 'because I want to see if you were born in October.'"Linda presents a rundown of how males and females of each sign act in a romantic situation.Men can learn much from this book because Linda has the knack of showing the more subtle aspects of relationship from a female point of view.For example, one way, she says, of attracting a Cancer man is to "Wear one of those bracelets made of foreign coins.That will strike two sensitive chords - travel to faraway places - and cash." In the book are many helpful hints for lovers, tailored for each sun sign.As Linda says in her introduction, she believes people can be more tolerant of others if they understand them through astrology.This book is informative and a joy to read.The world today is too conformist.Linda makes you realize how wonderful and wacky people can be, and we need all people to enrich life by living out their star-spun destinies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Own it? I've Owned Twelve <at least> of it! February 22, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First of all, if you own this book <I'm talking about the small mass-market version; if you're fortunate enough to have the hard-cover first edition, put it under lock and key, won't you?>, don't loan it with any expectations of getting it back. It just won't happen. The friend you loaned it to will loan it to another friend who "just has to have it," and that friend will loan it to another friend "who's going through a really bad time and will need this," who will loan it to another friend who has "just met this person, and needs to know all about him/her", who in turn loaned it to. . .and on it goes.
This book is a classic. I don't use that word lightly. I still have my "first edition" put carefully away as if someone handles it one more time, it will likely fall apart.
"Linda Goodman's Sun Signs" is one of those books I pull off my library shelf and read through randomly for sheer pleasure, or because I've met someone new and interesting and discretely discovered their birthday. It's rarely led me wrong.
What's worse, when I read the description of the typical Sagittarian, and the Sagittarian male, it reads like it was written by me, my mother, the CIA, the FBI, and all my friends through more than the half century I've spent on this planet. I first found that rather scary, but now I find it comforting. It means I'm simply being me, the person as I am supposed to be.
Over the years, Ms. Goodman has been criticized for her somewhat "shallow" approach to a controversial topic. Whether Astrology has any "scientific" validity, I leave to better minds than my own. But I can testify, from my own experience, that if I can learn an individual's birthday, read Ms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time has come for this to take on title of a CLASSIC February 3, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I remember reading this book years ago! And I do mean years! I was probably 16 or 17 years old. Why would that be important for a review? Because I understood it then, and refer back to it now. In fact I am on my 3rd copy! 1st one, because of all the use, fell apart. 2nd one, lent out and was so good never came back. 3rd one, sits on my bookcase in the area designed for most frequently used books. Sun Signs describes the Suns aspects on ones personalities for everyone in your life. Boss, Male, Female, Child. And very darn accurate if I may add. The reading is kept simple while staying informative. Personally, I don't want to learn how to perform astrology on someone, I just like to read the characteristics. Trine and Seventh Houses overwhelm me! This book is terrific if thats what you are after. I have to say, it helped me to learn where someone is coming from, the way they view life, and the best way to manage my interactions with them. So by understanding where that person in your life is operating from, your encounters can be on a more positive note. As far as enchancing myself and my life, it helped there as well. I am a Sag. When I read this book eons ago, I recall reading about the Sag woman. I was barely a woman at 16 but thats the chapter I read just the same! heehee I recall reading how sometimes a Sag can wound others with their words...they do not mean to do so, but they do. And whether intentional or not, wounds hurt. Even at the young age of 16, upon reading that description, from this book, it aided me to weigh my words just a bit more! Havent conquered this totally quite yet! hahaha But Linda Goodmans insightful words sure did help. Recommend adding this to your collection strongly. I could promise, it'll be dog eared and picked up time and time again!
