Glorious Images 29 May 2007
By A. W. Johnston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Astronomy: 365 is a wonderfully simple concept: one picture for each of the 365 nights of the year. This allows for a great variety of images, taken by all sorts of instruments from ordinary cameras to the Hubble Space Telescope, spanning broad panoramas of the night or evening sky to extreme close-ups of the Moon, galaxies and other heavenly bodies. Each image comes with a page of explanation of what can be seen and how the image was obtained.

A fascinating collection: the only criticism possible being that the book is rather small in both senses: it leaves you hungry for more pictures, which could be done more justice on larger format pages...

Stunning 10 Sep 2007
By Joseph M. D'aprile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book lives up to the others that preceed it. The collection of photographs are powerful, and there are 365 days of these images along with desciptions. The book is informative as well as stunning to look at. This is one for the coffee table and not the shelf.

Great collection of astonomical pictures 5 May 2008
By David Gil Navalon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A heavy and thick book with a great compendium of pictures shown on the Astronomical Picture of the Day website. It's a very good selection, and the captions - however brief - are interesting enough. To be read and enjoyed little by little, a few pages each day.
