    Secrets of the Purple Star Astrology
    by Eugene Lee

    First 40% of the book is devoted to very basic fundamentals of elements, energy phases, directions and nice-to-know scientific algebra formulas of fengshui. Makes me feel that I’m reading a science and maths textbook! The author even adds a disclaimer that this chapter can be skipped as it is optional and totally unrelated to Purple Star Astrology ZWDS. And I also think these are not vital to Purple Star Astrology reading.

    Then we have the basic and brief information on the 14 major stars and minor stars. At least he bothered to even include minor stars, though the descriptions are very brief to the point of just being key words and associations! At least he bothered… He also included some other minor stars are not common and in-use in only certain sects of ZWDS which is nice but very brief nevertheless. For plotting of those minor stars, due to his command of English, it is difficult to understand how to plot. The least he could do is to introduce plotting of stars via table-format which is clear-cut and easy to understand.

    Later part of the book, we have the usual chart analysis and chart categories/formations. Due to his weird choice of English translation of ZWDS stars’ names, it is difficult to follow what he was teaching. The least he could do is to include the HanYuPingYin HYPY (pronunciation of the Chinese names) or actual Chinese names of the stars whenever he states an English-translated name. I know he did include Chinese names accompanying their English-translated names but that was only the beginning part of the book. My suggestion to include actual Chinese name or HYPY pronunciation in bracket after WHENEVER he states an English-translated name.

    Though this is a basic ZWDS English book, the author’s English in the book is uneditted and raw (and together with the weird English-translated names of stars) which makes it difficult to follow even for someone already having knowledge of Purple Star Astrology. I see alot of the topics covered in this book is already covered (and with more details) in Empyrean Matrix book, for example, “Corpse buried at the roadside”, that I would recommend beginners to read Empyrean Matrix book instead of this confusing book. Price wise, this book is 2 times more expensive than Empyrean Matrix. Size wise, this book is also much smaller in page dimensions, fewer words count due to large font size and fewer pages than Empyrean Matrix.

    Like what the author had recommended readers to skip the beginning chapter, I recommend everyone to skip the whole book altogether.
    By people sharing knowledge/info publicly, the info itself does not devalue to become "common internet data which lacks credibility and needs verifying". If everyone thinks in this way, nobody would want to share anymore in order to protect the value and integrity of their knowledge.
