5.0 out of 5 stars Universe: Stars and Galaxies 15 Jun 2012
By Gabriel G. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
This book goes well in depth into the topics that it covers. It you're buying this for a class, the answers to the questions at the end of every chapter are in the back. NOTE: The answers are NOT only odd. Overall, this book was very useful and mind blowing. But that's to be expected of Cosmology.

It's similar to Astronomy Today in content, but they do differ in how they explain concepts. It's interesting and easily understood by someone with a moderate background in astronomy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed in product condition. 24 Jan 2014
By Jordan Harrison - Published on
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
I purchased a used book in "good" condition and received a book in very poor condition. The cover was severely damaged along with more than half of the pages, like someone had left it sitting with all the weight on its bottom right corner.The book was filled excessive highlighting (more than 75% of the page). Overall very disappointed in product. Good thing is it seems to contain all the pages.
