It's been a long coming, but it's finally here! Astronomy instructors and authors have produced a wonderfully readable and thoroughly comprehensible introduction to the science of astronomy. Each topic in this book really is a mini-tutorial as proclaimed by the cover title. The book format is actually written in a laboratory worksheet fashion (the sheets can be detached from the book along their perforated edges) with each worksheet dedicated to a specific astronomy concept (e.g., position, motion, Keplar's Third Law, etc.). One pass through this ingeniously designed "book of tutorials" and the beginner to the wonderful world of the cosmo is truly ready to move on to more advanced astronomy books and/or astronomy courses. My congratulations (and gratitude) to the Pearson Addison-Wesley Publishing Company for making the concept of learning enjoyable once again.

If you are at all interested in astronomy, but recoiled away from the subject after opening a typical "introductory" college textbook, then you would do yourself a tremendous favor by purchasing this book. You won't be disappointed!

This book seems to be full of good questions. I'm sure it would be interesting if it was accompanied by the lectures it was written for. Going through this book I wondered if there was a companion book. I couldn't find one.

We used this book in 2 different astronomy classes at my school and I absolute loved it, twice. It has great scenarios and questions that really lets you grasp the subject. I love astronomy and this book definitely helped me. Great even if it isn't required!

To complete this workbook, a person really only needs to have some basic Algebra skills. It does delve into some more complicated astronomy topics, but whenever it does, it explains how to use that information to solve the problems given.

It's a very simple book, but personally I found it very fun to work on. Buy it!

The book was exactly what my daughter needed for class. Although, the first chapter answers were filled in, the teacher ended up passing out a worksheet for that section.

Living in Hawaii usually means having to wait considerably but thanks for shipping this book as quickly as possible!
