Reviews:

There are many excellent beginner level astrology books available today, including this one. What makes The Weiser Concise Guide to Practical Astrology special is its clarity and holistic approach that links astrology to other metaphysical systems (although you don't have to know anything about them to understand the book). Priscilla Costello is a long-time professional astrologer who is a fountain of knowledge in many esoteric areas. She has obviously put a lot of thought into how to organize her material, and she does a fantastic job of condensing the vast topic of modern astrology into such a concise book! (The Wiser Concise Guide books are meant to be just that--concise.)

Priscilla Costello not only explains how the planets, signs, elements/modalities, houses and aspects work in the chart, she also provides an excellent "cookbook" for beginners (ready-made interpretations of planets in signs and houses, and the aspects). And she includes an easy-to-use system for bringing the information together as a whole and how to figure out what's the most important. Astrologers at all levels of knowledge will get something out of this book. Priscilla Costello has written a wonderfully comprehensive, clear, enjoyable and useful book that doesn't require a huge commitment of time and energy to read, understand and start using it to interpret charts. Very highly recommended!
_____________________________

The Weiser Concise Guide to Practical Astrology is among the very best basic astrology texts I've ever seen and I highly recommend it. As I've had the privilege of hearing Priscilla Costello lecture on several occasions, I had high expectations for this book and she did not disappoint. In fact, my expectations were surpassed. It's amazing to see this much essential information for the beginning astrologer so efficiently presented. Priscilla Costelloeven offers an overview and history of the different house systems, a topic rarely tackled in typical introduction to astrology primers. Priscilla Costello also offers an extensive bibliography of classic astrological books, and The Weiser Concise Guide to Practical Astrology is every bit as much of a "must-have" for the serious student.
