I've read Arroyo's "Chart Interpretation Handbook", so I picked this one up while looking for information on the elements. Unfortunately, I didn't get much from this book. I was very disappointed to find the charts and the house explanations almost reprinted word-for-word from "Chart Interpretation." While I appreciate the information on the elements, I didn't really learn anything. I was also disappointed that the subject of archetypes was not clearly tied to the planets, signs and houses. The author does bring a lot together in this book, but it is very general, more of a grouping of what's been stated by others, than an actual point of reference. Perhaps as my astrological studies continue this book will become more meaningful to me. I've since found much more relevant information on the four elements elsewhere.
