Astronomers are nocturnal and tend to ignore our nearest star - the sun. Chris Kitchin has written an excellent and comprehensive introduction to observing the sun. He makes it interesting and also attractive, in that it can be done in daylight!
Solar observing is the dangerous side of astronomy. The sun can blind an unwary observer. This book strikes a fine balance between warning you of the hazards but managing not to scare you off.
Highly recommended.

If it were described and titled as "Beginners Solar Observing Techniques" then it might be a good buy. However it lacks any depth and readers would soon wish for much more information (and will need to invest money!) if they want to know more than the basics
