Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a Christmas present from my wife in 1982. I have read this book from cover to cover several times, and it gives the reader an astonishing amount of information about the universe. I have the 1977 edition, and the only regret I have is that Cambridge has not published an updated edition. With the changes that have taken place in astonomy, it still gives the reader an incredible background in cosmology. However, many parts of the book are rather technical. I think it is one of the best books about astonomy that I have ever read!

Had I rated this book during the first year I bought this book ,(early 1978), I would give it 5 stars. But now only 4. Much of the information in the book is okay and still used today. Common knowledge. But a few of the ideas and therories explaned are out of date. The whole book needs updating. With all we have learned about the known universe since 1980, the update would be thicker - but I am sure I would be interested in buying a copy.

Format: Hardcover
This massive book is written in a very dry and scientific way, with formulas and theoretical explanations. It's free from humour, and references to the Universe as being something utterly fantastic and marvellous are few. Some of the text doesn't have enough supporting illustrations, which makes it is very difficult (if not impossible!) to understand. This is the most laborious book I have ever attempted to read, it's like bicycling uphill while pulling the brakes. I am currently on page 369 and have another 110 to go and I intend to finish it even though my eyes hurt and my head keeps nodding as I doze off. Still, I will be happy when I am done, for the book does give me added knowledge of the Universe, increasing my sense of cosmic marvel.
