".... it should prove to be a very useful guide and ready-reckoner to harried parents, groping in the dark in search of competent astrologers to scrutinise the charts of their wards readying to enter wedlock." - Hindu
"When marriages are arranged between families (eg, by the parents), when the bride & groom involved trust daddy's judgment more than their own feelings, when divorce can degenerate into multi-family warfare, the matching of wedding horoscopes by a competent astrologer assumes paramount importance. The Hindu system of arranged marriages is fabulous when it works, an unimaginable disaster when it doesn't. This is an excellent book, with all the many details needed to make sound judgment, including chapters on avoiding the dowry trap (not unknown with western marriages, just with a different name) and premature widowhood. The most fascinating to me is how one chart can be used to "correct" or balance unfavorable factors in the other, thus resulting in better marital relationships."
