This is a very insightful textbook, extremely scientifically backed up . Fold out map of the history, structure, and development of the Milky Way Galaxy. I am a student at college and I found it helped me a lot. This is one textbook I don't want to sell back as it is so interesting!

This is a fantastic book. I took Astronomy in college and we used this book. I sold the book back to the bookstore at the end of the semester. However, I missed my book and ended up picking up a used copy to refresh my memory.

In todays world publishers and Universities push to sell more and more books. What generally happens is that instead of getting better, most books get progressively worse. This is because the publisher moves the order of the topics in order to force peopel to purchase the latest version. This book is an exception and flows wonderfully. Great read for anyone wanting to learn more about Astronomy.

The Cosmic Perspective is an engaging, interesting, and very visual textbook. It explains astronomical concepts very clearly and I have enjoyed reading it for my class. Altogether, I would recommend it for study as well as for the intrepid amateur astronomer that's interested in learning how the universe works. Have you ever looked up at the moon and the stars and wondered why the moon looks a certain way or how far away that bright star is? If you have, you should buy this book!

I really like this book because it has a lot of pictures that help me understand the chapter. The concepts and information is up to date. I'd rather buy this book than the more recent edition.
