Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very detailed, but... This is a great book for the in-depth home astronomer. Plenty of information about the planets, moons and other objects in outer space, however I find it very wordy and it takes a while to read. Maybe less detailed info and more straight to the point facts will appeal to most readers, at least to me anyway. The poster that comes with this book is not that great either. Doesn't make me want to pick it up and read, seems more like a burden. Sorry, wish I could write a better review.
