Patrick Moore's Yearbook of Astronomy 2012,
This review is from: Patrick Moore's Yearbook of Astronomy 2012: 50th Anniversary Edition (Hardcover)
I always look forward to receiving the latest yearbook of Astronomy but the latest edition is even better. The 2012 book is a hardback edition to celebrate the series 50th anniversary. Appart from the usual monthly sky charts and sky notes there is an excellent selection of articles covering the last 50 years in astronomy. The articles are written by some very well known people in the world of astronomy and space travel e.g. David Harland, Ian Nicholson, Allan Chapman and many others. There are several colour photographs covering the last 50 years including the ever popular one taken from Appolo 8 looking back at the earth as it orbited the moon, the first spacecraft with humans on board to do so.
All in all, I would have no hesitation in recommending this book.

I usually wait for the paperback edition, but judging by the price here, and that the cover shown is not the same as the wrapper on the hardback edition I have seen in the shops, is this not happening this year?
