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.
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
