"The author writes in a scholarly and easily to access style. The text is clear, and concisely maps out the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities for investors (big and small, experienced professional and beginners) in global markets over the next 20 odd years. It is hard to believe that there is such a book. The information the book provides is useful and masterfully presented. The book deals specifically with using planetary bodies to predict cycles in the marketplace, both positive and negative. Offering suggestions and warnings that potentially reverberate up through the year 2020, The Financial Universe even contemplates the astrological sign of America as a nation, and considers the implications of this birth sign on the future of American finances as a whole as surely as what this means for one's private investments." -- The Midwest Book Review "The prophecies made by Christeen Skinner are weirdly accurate. In 2004 she told the Sunday Express that between 2005 and 2011 there will be an aspect between Saturn and Uranus not seen since the Great Depression of 1930-1931. More specifically, she predicted that 'the change in the cycle of Pluto in 2008 will bring about a collapse in the property market'." -- From MoneyWeek, 28 November 2008
