I bought this book because it looked interesting, but have found in just the first few pages that it contained several typos that were wrong, i.e. stating Louis XVI was "The Sun King," when Louis XIV was instead. Otherwise, I find it a nice introduction to the work of Nostradamus. Just don't make it your only source about him.

Michel de Nostredame is perhaps indeed one of the most undisputed 'psychics' ever known to man. His reputation as a defied prophet, mainly in our modern times, is made much likely due to the many false interpretations of self-professed 'interpreters' to his prophecies - that when time shows their fallacies, it is Nostradamus' name who suffered in the result.
Although not to the full extent of taking some high acclaim about her abilities to interpret Nostradamus' prophecies like the number of the other so-called interpreters -- Erika Cheetham is not too far being different from the number of these "Nostradamus experts"; her quatrain interpretations of Nostradamus' prophecies either lack accuracy or they miss out on some overlooked detail to further identify the intended meaning from Nostradamus' writings. Her commentaries on some of the verses interpreted are even at times self-confessionary in admitting to this.
THE MAN WHO SAW TOMORROW however, may be good enough to fill in for other books in the study of Nostradamus' works; the author, along with a biographical chapter found in the introduction to this book on the life of Nostradamus, have provided commentaries on some of the Century Quatrains, and is quite impressive with her notes for the portions pertaining to Hitler, Queen Catherine, and Napoleon. (I don't buy much of the stuff about the over-rated Kennedys though).
This book (which is the basis and companion to the film of the same title hosted by Orson Welles) contains all of Nostradamus' ten Century text writings with the authors' personal translations for each verse.
But if you would like to save some of your time, watch the movie instead.

At a going market rate of one penny (plus postage of course) this book might be an investment you could consider. Anything significantly in excess of that - think twice. In fact there is a short preface by the editor, agreeably written and providing some basic background on the seer and his seeings. This is what has enabled me, after a brief struggle with my conscience, to award the second star. Apart from that, I could not get out of my mind an early address where Nostradamus practised what really does seem to have been effective social medicine during the plague in Toulouse. This address was the rue de la Triperie, and the image of tripe was one that I could not forget as I read on.

There are 400-odd pages of this stuff, and of course the interpretations do not originate with the editor Erika Cheetham. Michel de Nostredame gained an early reputation as a prophet, and let me say before I start on the hermeneutics that his utterances are subjected to that I do not rule out the possibility that there may have been some substance to that reputation. I always remember what Arthur C Clarke said when musing on Childhood's End many years later - his interest in the paranormal had declined, but not all the phenomena can be bogus. However I'm in no doubt either that most of them are. Seers, prophets, shamans, swamis and whatnot occur in eras and in cultures where that kind of belief is common and indeed orthodox. The tradition lives on to the extent that people remain superstitious, and from certain visionaries, e.g. Frau Magda Goebbels, it can gain a new vigour and currency among those who seem to find in it predictions of what they would like to predict.

There is even a special irony here.
