This book is a joy to read or open at any time. The phenomenally good watercolor illustrations deliver the message effectively and dynamically. If you've ever wondered how chi energy moves - you'll know after you've looked at this book.
The birthdate charts are laid out in an extremely user-friendly way. When the charts are handled badly (i.e. some other books!,) it only serves to frustrate beginners. That the book is appropriate for beginners is obvious by the section on horoscope animals. Tastefully and spaciously done, but not in depth.
