Everyone who's read Born on a Rotten Day says the same thing. "It's brilliant, except for the part about my sign."
True, this is a scarily right-on book. More than that, it's some of the best writing I've read in a long, long time.
If you want to laugh, to learn what the stars say about you or your significant, or if you'd just like to admire the craft of a talented, over-the-top writer, you can't do better than Hazel Dixon-Cooper.
Laugh your way through this, her first book, and you'll understand why Dixon-Cooper was selected as Cosmo's new Bedside Astrologer--and why her many fans are waiting for the next Rotten Day book -- and the next.
I'm recommending Born On A Rotten Day to all of my friends -- whatever their signs -- and to every writer who wants to learn more about the craft and skill of crafting humorous nonfiction.

I have been reading astrology books for many years now and, while many of them touch upon the darker sides of each sign, none do it with quite the same humor as this book. This book was a Cosmo recommendation, and I found that the book doesn't mince words and really "tells it like it is." Some people might not agree with how their sign is represented, but then again, aren't they just expressing typical traits of their sign? Anyhow.. I read through all of the signs and their "darker " traits and found that the information was the same as you would find in many other astrology books, but with descriptions that are more forceful and lengthy. The book really does focus on the darker traits and says very few positive things about each sign. The writing is focused on unearthing the 'red flags' associated with each sign, and I honestly agreed with some of the negative traits of my own sign. It's not an academic book or even close.. it's a fun read and makes a great gift.
