5.0 out of 5 stars This is not a childrens' book (only)., April 7, 2001
This review is from: The Stars: A New Way to See Them (Paperback)
This book cannot be recommended, enough. Being an amateur astonomer for 30 years and having studied many "backyard" astronomy books, it was a revelation to find this book. It changed my view of stars for ever! Other books struggled to make you recognize the constellations by trying to "fit" them in patterns that either did not match the names and sometimes were silly. Rey managed to show us that "Cetus" constellation looks like a cetus really, and the same go for the rest of them. As an experienced (?) amateur astronome I usually turn to this book to refresh my view of the stars. I take it with me to star parties and I should say that at least 7 out of 10 people who see it, buy it. There is always a place for this book beside my photographic atlases of the sky and my astronomomical computer software which show thousands of stars more, but lack the fascination to look at bears and whale in the sky...
