Before 1968, astrology as we know it had a very limited following in the United States and around the world. It was the 1968 publication of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs that changed that forever. Newspapers began running astrology columns, and Goodman herself contributed insert pieces to the larger mass circulation women’s magazines. An increasingly larger number of people knew their sign (as well as yours) and began to study astrological tendencies.

Since its publication, Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs quickly established itself as the worldwide introductory bible to astrology for beginner and expert alike. The book’s simple organizational technique made it easy for everyone to follow and understand, organized sign-by-sign, the Man, Woman, Child, Boss, and Employee.

This edition of Goodman’s groundbreaking work has been fully updated to make the references to people in it current, and her magical first-person prose has been preserved, keeping the book’s original punch.

This ebook edition of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs is the first time that this classic has been available in e-book format.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Linda Goodman is a native of West Virginia. She popularized astrology with the publication of her book Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs in 1968, which is the only astrology book to ever appear on The New York Times bestseller list. Since then, it has sold tens of millions of copies worldwide and is the single most widely read introduction to astrology available.

Ten years after the success of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs, Goodman published Linda Goodman’s Love Signs, which answered the question posed by almost every reader of astrology--how does my sign relate and interface with the twelve other signs of the zodiac? Linda Goodman’s Love Signs was as big an international success as was Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs.

Written with such warmth, humour and love that it doesn't matter if you believe in astrology or not, you'll still be charmed by the bits that sound just like you. The Alice in Wonderland quotes are inspired.read more

Whether legitimate or not, whether weird or not, this book has shaped so many of my opinions about myself and about other people. I don’t think astrology is necessarily the ruling force in the universe, but I think it has some kind of significance, and Linda Goodman is its original genius. In the book, each of the twelve sun signs is broken up into five sections: a main overview, the male, the female, the boss and the child. She describes each sign with anecdotes, quotes and stories that either have either have personal relevance for her or cultural relevance for the reader. Although written in the sixties, Goodman’s book is still appropriate in today’s world, and I’ve yet to find a better guide to the signs.read more

That is kind of a nostalgic tip of the hat four stars there, because I appreciate Linda's Aries nature and the way she threw open the doors for a generation of astrologers and people in search of a bit more insight than just that newspaper column promising a tall dark stranger on Tuesday. And the Alice in Wonderland framework of Sunsigns was cool, particularly to the children of the 60's, our long hair trailing, our embroidered gowns catching the light.

But this book was also the first one to make me realize that in all fairness (yes, I'm a Libra by sunsign) astrologers and writers on astrology should be required to give you their charts first. Or at least to admit to their biases. Aries Linda had trouble with the Libra people and didn't quite capture us in all our glory.

It's a fun read, though, and a nice introduction to the art. Just don't take it too seriously, okay?read more

Linda Goodman described me so exactly using just my sun sign (Aquarius) that it's shocking. No other astrologer has gotten it so on the head for me. If you like astrology, get this book.

I saved this book from our yard sale about 10 years ago (my mom wanted to sell it) and it's gotten so much use that the cover is about to fall off. I've had fun bringing it to school and reading out loud to my friends the descriptions of their signs. I've also enjoyed rediscovering it at various times and seeing what parts I feel are true to my personality as compared to a couple of years previously. I've found it to be quite accurate, as long as you're honest and can take the good with the bad.
