Personology: The Precision Approach to Charting Your Life, Career, and Relationships

Gary Goldschneider, Author . Running Press $40 (927p) ISBN 978-0-7624-2229-6

Bestselling author Goldschneider (The Secret Language of Birthdays ) divides each of the astrological signs into three, more "precise" astrological categories in this latest volume. But though the book is more than 900 pages long, only a small portion of it—77 pages—is given over to details about the effects of these subcategories on personality, romance and career. Instead, the vast majority of the volume is taken up by a series of tables marking the positions of the Sun, Moon and planets for each day of the year from 1900 to 2025. Focusing on the essential traits imbued by each position, such as dominance by Sun position 40 and romantic perfectionism by Venus position 26, the volume is likely to disappoint readers looking for detailed analysis of the romantic potential between signs or specific recommendations for careers. But for those who just need to know whether they are a Capricorn I, II or III, the book will surely prove indispensable. 100,000 first printing . (Oct.)
