The author may want to give more attention to correcting errors here and there, and devote time for proof reading for the next version of the book... Thanks much, I personally enjoyed reading it...
I found this book to be OK, it wasn't radical and it wasn't deep. and surprisingly it wasn't fundamental.
The book uses flow charts to explain concepts. This method is pretty good. but the charts don't really flow. We are told that the meaning of a sign comes from that ruling planet, it's element, (earth, water, fire, air) and it's orientation, ( action, fixed, or dual). each of these components has a flow chart to explain it.
example of Libra. to understand Libra according to Vic, we need to understand Venus, Libra's ruling planet. we need understand the element of air, Libra's element. and we need to understand Libras orientation, which is action. also we need to understand the gender. He doesn't really break that one down as much as the others but it is there. Libra's gender is male.
This is really a good idea, Its breaking the components of Libra to its fundamental components so that you can really understand it. Taking the fundamental meaning of Venus, male gender, air and action , then combing them we get Libra. If Vic did this it would have been great.
Vic doesn't do that. He jumps to an intermediate step, and just give us his interpretation of his meaning of Libra.
His interpretation is good but you lose the whole point of doing the flow charts and combining the fundamentals. You really need to see the basic components come together, even if its sound boring or long winded to make that approach work. By skipping this step his book is no different then any other astrological book that just tells their interpretation of astrological meanings.
My concern is that if you are not a "Hare Krishna" person you are going to find numerous instances where the author inserts Vishnu/Krishna into the discussion where, in my opinion, it is out of place. It gets distracting and quite frankly, takes away from the brilliance of this work. It is sort of like reading great material with blips of propaganda mixed in.
By all means buy the book, read it and make up your own mind. It is definitely worth the time and money.
Also would have been helpful to include information on reading Kundlis.
Overall experience; not impressed as most of this information can Be found on a simple Google search & Youtube of the Upanishads.
