BY GARY GOLDSCHNEIDER

ABOUT THE BOOK:

With nearly two million copies in print, Gary Goldschneider’s Secret Language of Birthdays and Secret Language of Relationships are mainstays of any bookstore astrology section. Now the best-selling author has returned with his biggest and most ambitious work yet: Gary Goldschneider’s Everyday Astrology.

Here is detailed and comprehensive advice for handling everyone in your life-and we mean everyone: parents, children, siblings, coworkers, employees, lovers, spouses, exes, and more. Whether you’re wooing a Gemini first date, asking a Virgo boss for a raise, or persuading your Pisces roommate to do the dishes, Gary Goldschneider’s Everyday Astrology offers advice for any situation imaginable. Once you start paging through this book, you’ll find it impossible to stop!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

GARY GOLDSCHNEIDER is an internationally known astrologer and author of several best-selling books including The Secret Language of Birthdays and The Secret Language of Relationships. He has studied astrology for forty years and frequently lectures and writes on the subject. He lives in Amsterdam.

Gary began his extensive career in the public eye with weekly performances on WCAU radio’s Children’s Hour at the tender age of two. Reciting Keats, Shelley, Wordsworth and other famous poets, he later did scripts and commercials which laid the foundation for public speaking and college lecturing later in life. At seven, he began his piano study with David Sokoloff in Philadelphia. As a concert pianist he has appeared worldwide in recitals, including 12-hour Beethoven marathon concerts in which he performs all 32 piano sonatas of this great composer. Gary is the father of seven children, and his wife Berthe Meijer and he live in Amstelveen, Netherlands. Gary is internationally known as the bestselling author of The Secret Language of Birthdays, The Secret Language of Relationships, and the Secret Language of Destiny. This trilogy derives from his training in psychiatry and medicine at Yale University, his background in English Literature (B.A., M.A. University of Pennsylvania), his forty-year study of astrology, and his experiences living and working with spiritual groups in California and New Zealand.

MY REVIEW:

EVERYDAY ASTROLOGY is a wonderful book. Whether you believe in astrology or put any faith into it, you will find that this is an extremely interesting book. It is every day, simple advice for interacting with all kinds of people no matter what astrological sign they were born under. Each of the signs is looked at in three ways. It looks at them according to work, love, and friends and family. It further breaks each down into kinds of people you deal with in each of these three areas. One chapter tells all about how to recognize people's signs.Varying situations are looked at with everything from how to ask a boss for a raise to surviving the holidays to breaking up with your girlfriend...all depending on what their sign is.

The best part of this book and why I think people will like it is because of the writing. It is written in an easy narrative way with understandable vocabulary and great organization. Sections are given headings to make its organization a key to the reason that makes this book work. I found it enjoyable and easy to follow. The different examples given are entertaining as well as informative. It accomplishes its goal of helping the reader to deal with people in their own way. It will act as a reference source to help people in their everyday lives in practical ways and because it is so easy to use, I would think they would use it quite often.

In closing, and in relationship to whether there will be a giveaway of my copy or not, I'm sorry to say, there won't. I said that we needed two hundred comments and we didn't get that. However, in what I hope is a great recommendation for you to go out and buy your own copy, I am selfishly GLAD I get to keep the review copy I was sent, as I think it was good and will probably refer to it often.

Ha! This is hilarious. A sneak giveaway, how surreptitious. ;)
I am a google connect follower, of course. And I am a pisces. I am seductive, apparently... I especially liked this:
"long after their Pisces friend is gone they may well remain in an exhausted state of shock for some time to come." I am exhausting. Exhaustingly seductive.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
