Unprecedented Critical Acclaim for The Astrology of Death
In a large review in the main Newsletter of the world famous Johns Hopkins University & Medical Center, Sergio de Del Castillo characterized this book as: "very precise and scientific ... strong evidence for the strange connection between nature and the timing of events ... a powerful reference tool that marshals copious evidence to reveal the correlations between astrology and occurrences of death."
Dr. Margaret Millard (MD), reviewing in Considerations magazine, calls it: "a wonderful book ... fascinating ... clear ... unique ... a classic text that will not be equaled." In a letter to the author, she added: "I wish I were capable of writing such a masterpiece."
Lois Rodden, prolific author and editor of the highly-regarded Data News, writes: "crisp wit, humor and common sense ... probably the most stimulating astrology book I have read in a decade ... exciting. We will do well to use his methods."
Chris Lorenz, reviewing in Dell Horoscope, calls it: "an eye-opener ... (that) will yield a profound respect for astrology's true capacity, and for Mr. Houck."
Joseph Polansky, publisher of Diamond Fire magazine, writes: "wonderful, groundbreaking and seminal ... the author will both thrill and enrage you ... awesome ... one of our first-rate astrological minds."
Edith Hathaway, reviewing for The Mountain Astrologer magazine, says: Houck writes with considerable verve, wit, passion, humor and dead seriousness, if you can imagine all these rolled into one .... concise and assiduous."
Mark Lerner, publisher of Welcome to Planet Earth magazine, calls it a: "comprehensive, fascinating, extraordinary masterwork ... a brilliant text and reference work ... a gold mine that will attract a lot of attention."
Michael O'Reilly, writing in American Astrology magazine, says: "Houck's book should be considered a landmark in what must inevitably become a standard diagnostic system ... brash and to the point."
