Review

From the reviews:

"Mike Inglis is a guide well known from numerous amateur astronomers. With his two-book set on the Milky Way, he invites us to a walk along our Galaxy. … these are truly universal books that can be used by any astronomer anywhere in the World. The text is very pleasant and illustrated both by useful charts and a lot of photographs taken from various sources. These two volumes constitute, for sure, good fellows for any amateur astronomer." (Philippe Spindel, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)

"Inglis has taken on a big task. He rightly states that you could spend an entire career observing the Milky Way. These books could only have been successfully written by someone who is familiar with the subject. Inglis succeeds very well. … This is a super duo of books - a well written observational reference work, recommended for all observers.” (Peter Grego, Popular Astronomy, January-March, 2005)
