In love with an obtuse Taurus, drunk Pisces or hot-headed Aries? Fed up with whining relatives, and backstabbing co-workers? Discover how to use your own inner brat to outwit bullies, out manoeuvre manipulators and win those endless games that lovers play. It's time to forget traditional astrology books and visit the maladjusted side of the universe. BORN ON A ROTTEN DAY debunks the myth, reveals the flaws and examines the dubious virtues of each sign. Learn who's the compulsive cheater, the hypochondriac, the emotional blackmailer. It assumes everyone is a crank, crackpot, or emotional vampire, and instructs the reader in the fine art of handling these obnoxious characters. Anecdotes and quotes involving famous characters from both fiction and life illustrate various churlish, and predictable, behaviours. Readers will easily recognize their own irascible traits as well as those of family, friends and co-workers.
