This is a really well put together guide to help you become more familiar with the night sky. Engagingly written and easy to carry and use, it provides a monthly description of interesting objects you should be able to find in the night sky. Each month particular objects are chosen for a detailed look as well as a general overview of the current sky. Planet positions for each month are clearly shown for a range of years as well as annual ephemera such as meteor showers.

This is about the fourth or fifth edition of this Guide that I've purchased. It is ideal for finding out the positions of the planets and the dates of meteor showers. If like me you are very much an amateur astronomer with just a pair of binoculars observing from your back garden, then this is a brilliant introduction to astronomy and then useful thereafter in the ways I've said. This edition didn't disappoint.

I chose this rating because for it's size it is fairly comprehensible and easy to understand. In fact this is the third edition that I have bought since I was introduced to it.

I would recommend this book to anyone to make up a part of their astronomical library.
