Better books make better astrologers - Treat Yourself!

Updated July 16, 2014

Daves Best
of the Best list of Astrology Books
(Not our complete catalogue, just the best parts of it.)
I've often been asked for a list of my favorite astrology books, the ones I thought best. For years I resisted as I did not want to slight all the other
authors of all the other books. Also, I didn't think my personal biases should get any more attention than they already do. But we live in a world
that is graded (good - better - best) & those who make the rankings take it upon themselves, for better or worse. All of these books are in print and
in stock. Be forewarned: These are demanding books.
You will find a version of this flyer at http://www.AstroAmerica.com/TopTen.html . There, each of these titles are linked to informative
blurbs, price & other purchase information. Here are the best of the best:

Postscript: A great work is the result of great


talent, combined with an element of luck. Gurdjieff said talent was like salt. It must be handled
skillfully. Scattered or misapplied & it is lost or the
effect ruined. Few authors have the talent for a
great book. Few ever will.
That said, there are many other good books.
The books listed here are mere springboards.
What do you want to study, where do you
want to go? The possibilities are endless.
This list will be updated from time to time.
