Useful starter for the beginner...,
This review is from: The Monthly Sky Guide (Paperback)
This is a great introduction to the world of astronomy for those using binoculars or small telescopes. It's very concise and easy to follow (using the star charts from the Dutch map-master legend Wil Tirion) detailing the monthly highlights of the night sky.
However it does lack in quantity of information and is a bit lightweight. I'd personally recommend the (very highly regarded) 'Turn Left At Orion' and/or the excellent Phillips guides to the night sky.
With a larger number of targets and a bit more substance, this would be an excellent book for the novice astronomer.
