Editorial Reviews

Review


"Although this book complements Norriss S. Hetherington's Planetary Motions: A Historical Perspective, it is unique in its eclectic mix of detailed mathematical proofs, numerous figures, and solved problems...An essential book for any planetary astronomy collection." -- Library Journal


"Benson is an astute writer who conveys these mathematical concepts with a great deal of skill." -- Alastair Gunn, Sky at Night Magazine Book of the Month


"This iteration between theory and observation lies at the heart of the scientific method as practiced to this day. The result of this tutorial is a narrative that is both lucid and comprehensive but well suited to the layperson." --CHOICE
