A terrific introduction to Astronomy,
By A Customer
This review is from: Astronomy: A Self-Teaching Guide, Fifth Edition (Paperback)
I have just completed an introductory course in Astronomy and I was surprised to find out how much is covered in Dinah Moche's book. She is able to cut through to the important ideas and topics without a lot of minute details. If you want to start learning about astronomy, get this book. It is as good an intro you will get, including college.
