The History of Astronomy: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
The History of Astronomy: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Price: 6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars good comprehensive book, 21 Aug 2013
I bought this book to give me a grounding in the subject in preparation for my UCAS application and it provides a brilliant detailed introduction (so not so short) in the subject and covering the evolution of our understanding of the solar system and the universe. In particular I found it interesting how much more work Kepler did towards this than the more famous Galileo. It's only shortcoming for me is that it stops when astrophysics emerges in the 19 century (I believe) and I would have like to have seen it go up to the present day.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect all rounded picture, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paints a perfect all round picture of the 80's and Thatcher. I am studying A level history and doing my coursework on Maggie so this has been brilliant at enriching my knowledge for themes learnt in class and expanding my knowledge just generally.
