Being published by National Geographic you expect quality and this book is quality. The pictures take your breath away. The narrative is excellent and easy to understand. I rate this book as one of my best books on astronomy (I have a few). Buy this book and you won't regret it.

19 of 19 people found the following review helpful By alextorres on 26 July 2010
Format: Hardcover
This coffee-table book, which contains some sumptuous images of the universe taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, is surely going to delight anyone who holds a sense of wonder about our universe and an interest in astronomy.

The glorious photographs are the main appeal of the book - they are certainly the main reason I bought it - but the text is also interested. Written for the layman, it describes the background to the telescope's construction and its operation, as well as some of the scientific implications of its observations.

The balance of photographs to text is about right: the book is not too wordy leaving these awe-inspiring (and very humbling) photographs as the main feature of what is an excellent book.

This book is fairly large and well made. Beautiful glossy photos of the universe and some nice not too long notes on each section.

A perfect coffee table book for interesting browsing. Recommend this to anyone who has a slight interest in astronomy.

This was a gift for my husband. I chose it because it had a good review and being a National Geographic book I thought it would be good quality. It is full of great Hubble photos without too much text - just enough to give you information as to what you are looking at.

Initially I bought the book because I was interested in the photography, which is mind blowing, I then found the text absorbing, I think this book will appeal not only to the absolute beginner and the more proficient astronomer but also someone who is attracted to the photo's you can learn a very great deal. A very good book indeed.
