I can see why some people who are extremely interested in ancient astrology would find this book wonderful. However, I only wanted a brief run down and I thought (based on the title of this book) that a brief history would be a brief history. Unfortunately I found myself getting bogged down in astrological mumbo jumbo.I gave up around a third of the way through. While the topic sounds interesting to me, this book was not what I was after.
