Review:

In this comprehensive and colorfully illustrated "identity kit," readers examine themselves through 101 lenses, including the sun signs, the "Sevenfold Faces of Siang Mien" (a test that examines facial shapes), the models of Chinese medicine (are you a nurturer, explorer, magicia, or alchemist?), and even which sections of your brain are the most dominant. Numerous ancient and modern traditions and sciences are used to uncover how we think, feel, relate to the divine, and physically embody this lifetime.

Of course, the information will seem contradictory at times. For example, if your body type is endomorph you probably have a sluggish, go-with-the-flow personality. Yet, if you were also born in 1963 you are ruled by the tiger, indicating you are rash, impulsive, and quick-tempered. But never mind all that. This is meant to be a tool for self-exploration, not a tidy, compact formula. The quality stock paper, lovely illustrations and photographs, and stellar research make this a fascinating household staple--guaranteed to capture everyone's curiosity. A perfect party book. Gail Hudson
