This is a book for anyone who is irritated by the disconnect between the perky promises and mindlessly cheerfully affirmations that apply to a specific sun sign and the crappy week that ensues. It is the ultimate corrective to the plethora of happy sappy horoscope books and inane astrology columns that appear in daily newspapers around the world.

The idea of a basic astrology book that points out the bad points of each sign is nothing new, and it's a concept I really like for the simple fact that if people are laughing they may learn a thing or two about themselves without realizing it. While astrology is becoming more and more mainstream, there are still those who think of astrologers like seeing Aughra in "The Dark Crystal": Old people sitting around staring at astrolabes talking about "the angle of eternity!"

**I won this through a Goodreads giveaway.**

First of all, I love the design of this book. Judging a book by its cover usually works for me about 80% of the time, and this book is just as cool as its cover.

I love the attitude this book takes toward astrology (which I'm not a believer of, honestly) and I can see myself asking people when their birthdays are and flipping through this book to describe their "crappy sun sign". There is nothing vague about these descriptions, which explains some of th

If you are looking for the typical astrology book, this is not for you. Although fairly accurate, it is written with a lot humor and snark. It is great for a good laugh. Your are told what is wrong with you based on your birthday. Not all roses and sunshine here. For example, my daughter found out she was born on the same day as Ted Bundy. No other astrology book will tell you info like that. I did win this book through goodreads.

cheesy, but in a cute way. i like astrology and all, but i ESPECIALLY like bashing every single sign. which this book does. it was cool. and there is so much information and i felt like on some things i was freakishly on the same page as the author. like through capricorn singers, virgo talk show hosts, and gemini murders (???) but yeah yeah it was cool.

This was a fun read. Kind of in your face to see your drawbacks, but for the purpose in seeing the potentials if you are aware of them and do something about them. Very eye opening....and kind of funny.

Revealing the truth (whether you like it or not) about your star sign.
This was super funny!! Pessimistic horoscopes. I especially liked the job section - Absolute Worst Jobs For and Jobs That Might Not Screw Up.

Just for fun....and very funny! This book sets out in a very enjoyable way the 'flip side' of your astrology sun sign and what it's like to relate to someone born under each sign. (my significant other says it's accurate though......hmmmm!!)
