Great Book for Anyone Interested in Chinese Horoscopes

This book will take anyone through the process of creating a horoscope in the Chinese Zodiac. No outside information is needed - everything is in the book!

Amazingly accurate

I didn't really know what to expect when I picked up this book, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. Not only does it provide you with all the information you want to know about the twelve animal signs and animal compatibility, but it also provides you with additional more specific readings related to the month and hour of your birth, your life's path according to the sixty-year cycle, and other interesting things like the "noble good fortune stars", "yearly gods" and "career stars" (indicating where your natural talent lies in terms of work). It may seem a bit overwhelming with all the charts, but if you patiently follow the instructions, which are very clear, you can easily find the relevant information and reading for your horoscope. I was surprised how accurate my reading was.

A beautiful introduction to Eastern horoscopes

This is a very attractive book that covers a lot of ground in Chinese astrology. It's based on the familiar twelve animals, of course, but it makes a point of noting that the cycle actually continues for 60 years rather than 12, with each animal being linked in turn with one of the five Chinese elements--you may know that you were born in the Year of the Ram, but are you a Prosperous Ram, a Lonely Ram or a Ram Respected by Others?The book also includes information on your birth hour, birth day and birth month (by the Chinese lunar calendar)--there's information in here on how your month interacts with your year, making Chinese astrology more dynamic than it sometimes is presented. Various combination of hour, month and year give you such interesting sidelights as your Career Star, your Animal Bone Fortune and your Yearly God.There's not much about the theory or philosophy behind Chinese astrology, which may be good or bad depending on your point of view. I took off a star from my rating because there are a couple of typos in the charts that make them a bit confusing--you can figure out what they're supposed to say, but hopefully these will be caught in later editions. Still, I recommend this book as a good introduction to the subject, and an excellent gift choice.

Informative and user-friendly!

This is an informative and user-friendly introduction to Chinese astrology. Man-Ho Kwok obviously loves the subject matter - and easily conveys the complex. I highly recommend this book to readers looking for a basic introduction to Chinese astrology.
