It is widely recognized as a modern classic and Robert Hand, the world’s foremost Western astrologer, called it a masterpiece. James is known for his ability to explain complicated astrological and spiritual concepts in the simplest, most digestible manner.

He is the recipient of many awards, including the Jyotish Kovid and B.V. Raman Jyotisha Choodamani. James has done many podcast interviews and teaching sessions that can be seen on YouTube.
