5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 8 Dec 2008
By 
This review is from: Astronomy: A Physical Perspective (Paperback)
It is the most complete book that I know in general astronomy. The book includes the most relevant topics of modern astronomy and it approaches the concepts with interesting problems with solutions. An excellent book for astronomy students. The book have supplemental tests with questions and problems, but you need a solution book in that part.

5.0 out of 5 stars competition, 19 July 2010
By

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Astronomy: A Physical Perspective (Paperback)
The book is less thorough than its competitor "Introductory Astronomy & Astrophysics" by Zeilik & Gregory.
With thicker paper it is more volumeness and has about 100 pages less than its competition. Both look at astronomy from a physical perspective and therefore are not simple popular reading but do pose the physical questions and equations.
The order of topics in both cases is starting from the solar system and ending at the rim of the known universe.
The book, with its colour illustrations, is more recent (2003) than the competiton that is a little dated with its 4th edition of 1998 and is completely in b/w.
Both are great books to dive a little deeper into astronomy. The competitive "introductory astronomy & astrophysics" is a slightly heavier read.
