Recommends it for: astrologers interested in classical astrology
Holden does a marvelous job of translating Rhetorius for contemporary astrologers. This is one of the most comprehensive ancient astrology books available. Rhetorius was a tremendous astrologer, and includes a huge variety of information about ancient methods. It's truly a compendium because of the wide variety of information and techniques included.

All in all, one of the most fascinating ancient astrology books available. Highly recommended.
