However, since you say it's a good book, I'll definitely take a look at it.

Thanks for the recommendation!
I can well understand your point about Frawley's style, it does become a bit wearing. I like Lee Lehman's style and her book is very good, That being said I tend to consult Frawley first. Louis' was the first book on Horary that I read and still is a good intro. I have Barclay's book it did indeed reawaken the interest in the tradition but being a pioneering book,it gets somethings not quite right. It still has an important place though, without it the revival might never have happened. There's also a book by her protegée, Barbara Dunn, titled ,Horary Astrology Re-examined. I wouldn't recommend it though it's heavy going ( (and I mean heavy).
