1.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS USELESS, BORING, AND INACCURATE!, 10 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Touring the Universe Through Binoculars: Complete Astronomer's Guidebook (Wiley Science Editions) (Paperback)
The main problem with this book is that it doesn't provide much more information that a 50 cent star map would. The illustrations are hard to read and the text is inaccurate. It is almost impossible to use the information to find objects of interest in the sky. I counted fourteen instances where the text says an object is in one constellation, but the map shows it in another! The writing is so dry and monotinous it will put you to sleep. It is obvious very little attention or interest went into compiling this trash.
