This book did not help me at all. Nick Campion uses all kinds of big extravagant words, which just confused me more. I bought this book thinking I would be getting THE ULTIMATE ASTROLOGER, when all it really does is tells you how to do a whole bunch of math (which I came to find I could get my birth chart off of the internet for free within 10 seconds, without having to do any math). I spend 6 hours adding up and calculating my birth chart before discovering it was free on the net. This book is definitely not for someone who does not like math. Another thing about it that I really dislike is the fact that it contains almost nothing about synastry. NOTHING.
