Excellent book , with much going for it! Many pieces about the late sir Patrick included, I found them moving and got a lttle more insight into the man behind the stars!......Keep on stocking this book AMAZON, hre's one Amateur astronomer in your debt!..........................T.
If you have any interest in astronomy and loved watching Patrick on television, then this is a must have to buy. I hope the Yearbooks will continue (and "The Sky at Night") in the future but unfortunately they will never be quite the same without dear old Patrick.
This book is a fitting monument to a monumental man. So much bigger than life. We have all been privileged to enjoy his writings and other publications spanning two centuries. As he once commented, he had met one of the first men to fly, and most of the astronauts. I have been entranced by Patrick for most of my life and mourn his passing. The format of this book is appropropriate to its purpose. The contributors have something to say about the man, and then about astronomy. It moved me deeply. Patrick is not the only person to encourage my interest in astronomy, but he was certainly more constant as an influence than any other. For that I can only thank him, and thank the contributors to this fine publication. Graham Davies
The usual indispensable guide for the amateur astronomer for the coming year. this year the contributors have also put in there personal reminiscences of Patrick Moore who died at the end of 2012. In the last 50 years virtually every astronomer , amateur and professional alike , can say that they were inspired to take up astronomy by Sir patrick - i am no exception to this. A fitting tribute to a great man by his fellow astronomers.
If there is one astronomy book you buy in a year this should be it - every year. Still in one respect a shock that Patrick is not here to continue his involvement, but the new team have done a great job, and the tributes a very welcome addition this year. We must not forget.....
Wonderful book for anyone interested in astromony. Suitalbe for experienced and inexperienced alike. Loads of info. You cannot go wrong with dear Patrick, very sadly missed. Very prompt delivery. Highly reommended.
