He has compiled a lot of info from the secondary literature. He gives no references though. Impossible for the non-professional to check him.
Yes, a major problem with the book, and very frustrating for readers. I suppose he considered references too much trouble. One has only to read academic texts to see how time consuming references and footnotes can be.
However, we should talk concrete.
On page 61 Gavin says that 'the Bow star to kill and rob' is a line from the Creation Epic. But where?
There is one line, V 25, that talks about kill and rob, but there is no Bow star there.
Here Gavin must be wrong.
Then down in the page he quotes an omen about the Bow star in the halo of the Moon bringing rage and robberies.
This is taken from Hunger 'Astrological Reports...' 1992 and is correct.
So there is no way of non-professionals knowing what is correct and what is "maybe correct." This is sad because Gavin White obviously has great love and enthusiasm for his subject, and illustrated the book himself.
