Can the Stars determine our future? Millions of people believe so. And as a matter of scientific fact, it is more reasonable to assume astral influences on the human body than to believe that the human mind can control the activity of a single finger! Even people who pride themselves on their rationality will take an occasional look at their horoscope in the newspaper. But both doubters and believers will be startled by this book about man and the heavens.
