My advice is to let ashstakavarga go for the time being. It's one of the more esoteric techniques in India's astrology, and in my experience doesn't always check out the way it's supposed to. Also there is more than one way it can be calculated. To really understand this topic, books by different authors should be compared.

I haven't seen that particular book, but C.S. Patel is a respected author. Possibly the second author took some of Patel's work and built on it to make the book, but I don't know for sure.

Hi James: Second Therese's advice and opinion in ashtakavarga techniques. The theory of ashtakvarga has serious limitations. High ashtakavarga points doesn't lighten the vulnerability of weak and afflicted planets in the natal chart and consequently renders the usefulness of its fundamental concept a chimera.
Cheers.
