I thought this was a wonderful book. It has a lot of wonderful pictures and excelent diagrams. This book goes into many different areas of astronomy giving the reader a well rounded bounty of knowledge about our Universe. It is also rather easy to understant. You don't need to be an astro-physicist to understant this book, but after reading it you might want to become one!

Astronomy made easy!
3 January 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This was a required book for an Astronomy course I took in college - I can't say enough good things about it. The large, colorful pictures along with the easy to read text made this subject one of my favorites so far in college. Astronomy can be difficult at times but this book made the various topics extremely easy to understand. I liked this book so much that I decided to keep it as part of my personal library and reference book - I've used it numerous times already when hearing about different topics in Astronomy. One of the best school textbooks out there - absolutely recommended!
Great book but it could be boring if you are ...

Very interesting book. Bought it during my college course but kept the book to further my understanding of the space and beyond. Especially with new studies and discoveries by NASA, I had to look up and re read my notes. Great book but it could be boring if you are not into space, or curious about what is beyond us

This is a great book to introduce anyone to astronomy, and it has lots of clear pictures to illustrate key concepts and good thought provoking questions at the end to help review for what you learned during the chapter, and connects it to logical reasoning.

It was for school so boring and very unhelpful. Altough we were made to get it, we never learned any helpful information.
