My daughter is just starting A Levels, with an expressed career interest in astrophysics. I thought this might be a great present. It probably still is, but I found many of the illustrations to be trite. And the typesetting of the (not extensive) mathematics in Einstein's paper is shockingly bad! With the advances in typesetting technology (TeX, etc), the publisher really should have done better.

There was a lot to learn about great astronomers, I recommend it to anyone who is interested in astronomy and how great astronomers managed to observe the universe through their simple telescopes.
