Editorial Reviews


An up-to-date, A-Z reference guide with over 1,000 concise entries... user-friendly and affordable... a useful tool for both introductory and advanced astronomy. (Caroline Gilson American Reference Books Annual, Volume 35 2004-01-00)

Attractively produced, it offers numerous small but sharp and attractive illustrations... Recommended. General readers; undergraduates. (B.E. Fleury Choice 2004-02-00)

Illustrations are copious, colorful... planets are handily tabulated, as are the distances, spectral types, and apparent magnitudes of the nearest and brightest stars. (Joshua Roth Sky and Telescope 2006-02-00)
