Useful for those fairly new to Astonomy/Astrophysics,
This review is from: Universe (Paperback)
This was very useful in my first year of University, but hasn't been very useful beyond that. I wouldn't recommend buying it to a University (Physics/Astrophysics) student, there are far more useful books you can spend your student loan on (have a look at 'An Introduction to Modern Astrophysics').
For non-students, this is a fairly basic qualitative text with not much mathematics, so it's accessible and is fairly comprehensive. it covers a wide range of topics, but not in much depth.
