The Broken Horoscope

Raad Chalabi, PhD


In his newest book, The Broken Horoscope, the author, through forty four stand-alone fictional dialogues, each highlighting at least one true character he had met, hopes to demonstrate the futility of ‘boxing’ the ever-changing human behaviour within the boundaries of twelve zodiac signs.

The theme behind The Broken Horoscope is simple. It basically states that the more we try to pack individuals in pre-defined character slots in order to predict their future behaviour the less likely are we to make any sense of what we subsequently observe their behaviour to be.

The book is intended to explore through imaginary dialogues the philosophical axiom that surprise is the essence of life and that human fickleness is its only anchor and ‘maybe’ is its only compass.
