Perfect Match: Discovering Your Soulmate

Rebecca Kai Dotlich, . . Schocken, $15.95 (432pp) ISBN 978-0-8052-1129-0

A husband and wife astrology team takes a truly worldly view of the concept of soul mates and love at first sight in this guide to finding love by examining astrological traditions. Miller and Brown's book looks daunting to the unknowing reader—it's packed with zodiac charts and words like bhavacakra and ming shu. But for the greatly interested, this is a gold mine of information. Each chapter deals with a different culture, including Chinese, Hindu, Judaic and Western. The authors helpfully use celebrities as examples, examining the compatibility of couples like Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain. (Feb. 14)
