Overall, this is not a bad book and in fact, Bob Marks deserves credit for providing so many illustrative applications. However, this is more pop astrology than a serious examination of Solar Return astrology. For instance, Bob doesn't really address the fact his method of "adjusting" solar returns is actually a subject of debate among astrologers (some find the method he applies, precession-corrected placements, to be intellectually incoherent). Another and more problematic gap is the fact the solar return is actually two return charts: when the sun returns to the native's natal position every year -and- the natal house that is returned in the solar return chart. That is to say, the degree that is rising. Both are critical in understanding the areas of life that the native should focus on/will focus on/will be brought to his attention. For instance, if someone wants to focus on enhancing friendships, that person can either place the sun (and hopefully some benefic heavenly bodies) into the solar return 11th house -or- return his natal 11th house to the ascendant of the solar return chart. The question "is it better to return a specific house to the solar return ascendant or to place the sun in the desired house of the solar return chart?" is a separate discussion.

The other element of this book that smacks of pop astrology is his all-too-brief interpretations of what each planet "means" in the solar return chart without regard to how the solar return planets aspect each other or how they aspect the native's natal placements. Simply, many of these interpretations are premised on a few anecdotes he relates.

Bob Marks gives us the benefit of his many years of experience as a consulting astrologer. This delightful book is filled with information on solar returns that you can't get anywhere else. Marks simplifies a complex subject, making it easy to understand and use, and gives clear guidelines to follow if you want to change your destiny by traveling on your birthday. For the less astrologically confident, "How to Get More" will help you assess whether to try this technique on your own or with the help of a professional astrologer.

Even if you don't have the time or inclination to travel (and I am one who doesn't!), this is an entertaining and informative read, with many excellent solar return examples from real life. Marks favors precession-corrected solars over ordinary ones, again with some fine examples. The book also includes a 25-page primer of meanings of the planets in the solar return houses.

Bob Marks' writing is infused with spirit and wit, and he makes his points extraordinarily well. If you've ever wanted to learn more about solar returns without having to drag yourself through a complicated tome, this book is for you!

I was intrigued by the title of this book. I had planned to travel this year on my birthday so I purchased the book assuming it would help me select a destination. Wrong! Unless you are a professional astrologer or purchase the software ($350) to run your solar return chart, this book won't help you with selecting a destination. I have a copy of my solar return chart from last year and tried to use the instructions in this book to determine where I should have spent my last birthday. Much too complicated for a beginner! If what you want is to know where to travel to on you next birthday, use the money you'll save by not buying this book to pay a good astrologer to give you the answer.

Very good book, with lots of good sense of humor!
I`ve always wanted to travel and get to see the world and now I`ve decided to save every penny and travel on my birthdays and mid-birthdays...
I just thought a little upsetting that the only way to get a solar return chart that is PRECESSION CORRECTED is by buying some kind of software... I wish there where a web site with free charts like that.
But, doesn`t matter: I LOVE this book!

The idea presented in this book, that you can alter certain aspects of your future by visiting a certain location on your birthday, fascinates me. If you too find the idea interesting, then this book is for you. But be advised, it wasn't easy for me to grasp many of the astrological concepts as I have no real background in astrology. What made me interested in this book is that I love to travel, and the idea of combining a trip on my birthday with the opportunity to improve a specific area of my life felt irresistible. By the time I finished the book, I decided to let a professional astrologer work out the details and not try to figure out something this important on my own.

Mr. Marks does a wonderful job with this book. I read half of it in just one sitting because it was so compelling that I couldn't put it down! He presents this unique information in a straightforward, clear-cut way. This makes it enjoyable for both astrology experts and anyone with a curious mind and minimal to no astrology experience. It definitely makes me want to start traveling on my birthday!!
