Book Summary

What do Princess Diana, Ronald Reagan, Sylvia Plath, Winston Churchill and leaders of the Third Reich have in common? They all consulted astrologers. This is an irreverent, intelligent defence of astrology, examining the extraordinary role it has played in the past and still plays today.

What do Princess Diana, Ronald Reagan, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, Winston Churchill, William Shakespeare and the leaders of the Third Reich have in common? They all consulted astrologers. "True as the Stars Above" is an irreverent, intelligent defence of astrology, and an examination of the extraordinary role it has played in the past and still plays today. Some of the revelations in the book include: Margaret Thatcher seeking astrological advice after the Brighton bomb; a significant number of the world's major financial institutions have an astrologer or two on their payroll; British intelligence employed an astrologer during World War II because they were convinced Hitler was doing the same; Ronald Reagan's Chief of Staff (to his fury) was forced to keep a colour coded calendar, with green for good days, red for bad days and yellow for "iffy" days, in line with the views of Nancy's astrologer. This is astrology demystified, whether it's the ongoing row over statistical evidence for astrology or why "Gone With The Wind"'s Scarlett O'Hara is definitely an Aries. short..
