Each birthday gets two pages of trivia such as who was born on this day, a personality evaluation, numbers & planets, tarot, health, advice, meditation, and more. Just imagine being born on 20 April. Adolf Hitler. The book is too old to remember the Columbine shootings.
There are a few other sections in the book that cover periods in the zodiac cycle.
Nice superficial book that may give you some conversation for a day or two. This also makes a good coffee-table book. Soon though even your visitors will get bored with the book.
If you like this book you will love “You Were Born on a Rotten Day” by Jim Critchfield.

ESPecially for people who want to know themselves and others 10 mai 2004
Par Dean Anderson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I really have no idea who Gary Goldschneider and Joost Elffers are, but somehow, they've managed to find out every little thng about every person I know and placed that information on the pages of this book.

Whenever people come over and want to get a quick thumbnail sketch about someone, they just find that person's birthday and turn to the corresponding page. There, in a concise but surprisingly in-depth essay, is a bit about the standards and practices of whatever birthdate you're looking at! Included are celebrities who were also born on that day throughout history and a few other interesting tid bits.

It makes for a fascinating party game, to find out just how "true" you think these comments are for you. So far, everyone I know has said they've been nailed to a tee by this book. I ask you... can everyone be wrong?

Highly recommended (for entertainment purposes only).

"Scary" seems to be a good term... 1 septembre 2004
Par D. J Nelson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'm not big on horoscopes, and hold a long-held belief that horoscopes are self-fulfilling once you read them. If you are looking for a "major romantic disaster" you will find one...whether or not you would normally classify it as major... but I'm digressing a tad.

I glanced through this book, looking up my birthday. AHH! Howly cow (and stronger, sensored words)! It pegged me perfectly. Even down to my chosen profession as an applied pedgagogical specialist dealing with underdeveloped, high-spirited, curious young people (I'm a teacher). Seesh.

This book, while it hasn't convinced me that astology and birthday personalities exists per se...has thoroughly convinced me that I'm being followed and closely watched by someone. Or that there is some truth in this "horoscopic" idea that has lasted for thousands of year.

READ THIS BOOK! Even us skeptics need to get something tossed into our faces once and awhile.

Too Much Fun ... Even For a Skeptic 19 juillet 2006
Par Regina McMenamin - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I am too much of a skeptic to believe in astrology, but despite that I found THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF BIRTHDAYS to be a fun read that provides literally years worth of entertainment.

What intrigued me most about this dictionary-sized book is that instead of dividing mankind into 12 groups based upon astrological signs, THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF BIRTHDAYS devotes a two page spread to those born on each of the 365 days of the year and February 29th, too.

To some this may not seem interesting, but having grown up in a large family of six kids -- five of whom are Aquariuses -- I could never relate to astrology because none of my brothers and sisters has anything in common, yet we are all left to read the same paragraph in the newspaper horoscope.

There are three reasons you may want to check out the SECRET LANGUAGE OF BIRTHDYAS either for yourself or as a gift for a friend:

1. In many cases, if you look up your birthday, you will be shocked to find how accurately a complete stranger describes you. In my case, and in the case of many people I know, this book described us to a tee, including the good, the bad and the ugly;

2. When having friends over, this book can be enormously entertaining. Old, young, fat, thin, black, white, Puerto Rican, everyone loves to read about him or herself. Hearing these birthday-related personality profiles has provided hours of conversation as my friends and I debate whether we are accurately described in this book. Most people agree they are. Even funnier is looking up the birthdays of famous people. It is truly shocking what you will find here. Reading about Bill Clinton's and Monica Lewinsky's birthdays will amaze you because in both cases the profiles were written before the scandal; and finally

3. When giving a birthday present to someone, I like to Xerox his or her two page spread and make it into a card. I have found that often they like it more than the gift itself.

This book is so accurate it is spooky. 14 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
My boyfriend and I gave this book to everyone we know at Christmas. At a recent family gathering we read the profiles of each family member without mentioning the date and each person was guessed right away just by the characteristics in the profile. Another example, my neighbor came over to read his profile and it was him exactly. Then he gave me his wife's birthdate and it was nothing at all like her. After he went home, he calls me up with her correct birthday (ouch!) and the description was uncanny. The first line indicated that she "bridges the gap between troubled families" - this woman is a social worker. Hope you enjoy this book as much as I have. Bring it to your next party.

Skeptical? You won't be for long! Astonishing! 29 septembre 2003
Par unicornelia - Publié sur

Read this book; it's astounding! Each day literally describes the qualities of the person born on it, famous or not. It's amazing how every time I reference this book to read up on a friend, family member, or acquaintance when I discover their birthdate, I find that their description REALLY SEEMS like it was written ABOUT THEM! It never fails. Did the authors KNOW my friends?! "Personology" is yet another system I use for determining traits and other aspects of people. This book is yet another reason I'm an astrologer.
Take my one friend, a September 26 person. I read her description and lo and behold, it was like a biography of her! This is no coincidence! She's a coffee-a-holic, right? So the books says: "September 26 people are particularly prone to overindulging in caffiene." The girl is caffeine-obsessed. It's unreal. She's asked to pick words to describe herself, and one of them is "persistent." Guess which word the book uses to describe September 26 people?! And not just that. It goes on and on about their work habits, their senses of humor, their other characteristics. I'm sitting there laughing in disbelief and saying "Oh my god!" because I can't believe how dead-on accurate the book is! Then there's my September 29 teacher, right? You WOULDN'T believe what I read about HIM! Only the EXACT same thing I said when I was sitting there analyzing his personality for no reason at all, just because I'm an analytic person. It's completely insane. Read this book, it's fun, it's helpful, it's extraordinary! (And a bit scary, especially if you don't believe.) ^_~
