There are two types of Pisces those who go against the tide and those who go where it takes them. The former types remain on the lookout for the right opportunity, struggle against the world to utilize its full potential and triumph over life. The latter types remain tangled in their dreams, may not notice even when the opportunity knocks at the door and may miss the bright sunlight of success. A Pisces man needs to develop the personality traits of resolute judgment and unwavering actions to realize his ambitions and be a winner.

Remember that a Pisces man is very fond of his dreams. Never ever step on them or laugh at them he will be hurt. In fact, believe in them and one day, you may be walking on the red carpet besides him. Trust him, give him love and keep him emotionally nourished. In return, he will shower you with lots of love and affection and provide you with a happy and rich home. Do not nag or criticize him and always support him in realizing his hopes. Nurture his imagination and one day, you will find yourself blessed with some incredibly good luck.

Simply browse this book to learn in respect of the matters of heart, career and finances, business issues, office problems, family tensions, love and relationships, or whatever topic you may have in your mind for each of the zodiac signs

They may as well have named this Pisces: Love Compatibility.

Besides some history and information of the four branches of astrology, all the details about the Pisces evolves around romantic compatibility. While useful to know, if you are wanting to find a book that more in depth about an actual Pisces, this isn't it. Unfortunately the author over-focuses on the Pisces being too sensitive, dreamy and fragile, so that's the main thing focused on with each zodiac pairing. Their most common traits are lined up and judged based on if they are supportive enough for this "fragile sign", attentive enough for this needy sign, or not too harsh with this "vulnerable" sign.

While I consider myself sensitive, compassionate AND big on daydreaming (I'm a double Pisces!), I resent the over-sensitivity these books and articles seem to paint the sign with. If anything, I was always the one who had to support the man emotionally and sometimes financially through most of my relationships. I was the one who had to encourage logic, goal setting, financial management, and finding the good side to lift themselves up out of their problems. It would be nice if this could be focused on as well - the loyalty and supportive side. Frankly the only reason I choose to still stay single is because I've found so many relationships exhausting, one-sided, and draining because I have to end up being the backbone with very little in return.

The book is written well enough, but overly simple for my needs. I'm looking for a more in-depth book than just how we are useful or not useful for romantic relationships. If that is the information you're looking for, this a good one to grab. Don't get me wrong, some of that is useful too, but I'm looking more for self-examination and growth rather than if I'm a suited fit for romance right now.

This is also stated at least twice, but not really covered or explained:

"There are two types of Pisces those who go against the tide and those who go where it takes them. The former types remain on the lookout for the right opportunity, struggle against the world to utilize its full potential and triumph over life." From what I understand of the text, it seems to encourage going against the Pisces instinct to be their chillax self in order to get anywhere or accomplish much.
