How to Judge a Horoscope, Vol. 1 Reviews
B.V. Raman takes a very simplistic and black and white approach to Vedic Astrology in this series. Boiling his conclusions down to "good" or "bad" using methods that don't demonstrate Vedic Astrology's utility as a tool for guidance.
Both volumes, one and two, are very helpful to analyze horoscope that includes different aspects of effect on house and it's lord.
The author just gives different combination of planets saying which are powerful and which are not, without explaining the reasoning behind the statements. Also the book is full of mistakes. I did not learn anything from reading the book.
Good book but jumps into charts without explaining basics. Probably a book for people who has knowledge on basics of vedic astrology.
2 star for print quality. 5 star for content. Amazon is ripping off by selling these substandard printed $2 books for over $10. Not fair.
This and its companion volume are essential reading for any Vedic astrologer. I have had my copies for several decades and find myself referring to it still. It should be re-read at least every few years as you will learn from it no matter what your level of experience from beginner to very advanced. You will grow into this book.
This is a fascinating book and makes Vedic astrology very simple to understand. B V Raman's expositon of the subject is insightful.
