Format: Paperback
I am not knocking this book's factual contents, the charts seem nice and clear and there is interesting info on the mythology and science of the constellations.
But, the book is aimed at those living at 40 degrees north (for Americans, primarily) so isn't really right for the UK. Also the guides to the positions of the planets are out of date, so that important section is no use at all.

...I've probably bought at least a dozen copies over the years, for myself, for friends. It's the only star map book I've ever seen in which the maps actually look like the night sky. Very easy to use. Very well written. Has a wonderful selection of star myths and also clear, elementary explanations of the science. Highly recommended.

I bought this as a present for my younger brother. I checked it through before giving it to him, and decided it was just what he was after. Having got a telescope for his birthday, he wanted to know where the constellations/planets etc were and this book was perfect for him. It can be a bit technical, but not overwhelmingly so. It comes with a brief explanation of the constellations, their origins and things like that, so it's both informative as well as being a good guide for him. Would recommend to anyone taking their first steps into stargazing
