Wonderful book, which is literally full of wonders..., 10 Nov. 2012
You'll want a copy of this too. You will! The guys invite you on their spaceship called Ptolemy. We travel at the speed of thought, as they say, and we'll start close to home, eventually visiting the end of the observable universe. In between you'll meet "the 100 most awe-inspiring destinations". And probably the best thing is, it truly is an astronomy book for everybody. You can treat it as a pretty picture book, but there's much more to it than that, as our tour guides explain these sights in understandable terms.
I genuinly can't think of anything for improvement; I love the format, where you'll eventually end up millions of light-years away, and it reminded me of just how big our neighbourhood is. And reading about all the beautiful sights you'll encounter before reaching that distance at the end of the book, made me feel quite humble too. Thanks Brian, Patrick and Chris, for this treasure!
