Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] rich resource for advanced amateurs, but novices will also like the star charts (both Northern and Southern hemispheres) and abundant explanatory text detailing each of the 88 constellations and the stars within them, as well as the sun, moon, planets, and Milky Way." ― Library Journal

"Praise for previous editions: "For those who gaze at the night sky, seeking the familiar patterns known to sailors and shepherds, this field guide will be an invaluable companion.""---Bruce E. Fleury, Science Books & Films

"Though I'm not in a position to assess the title's proclamation of being the most complete guide, I will say that it is the best one that I've read. With Ian Ridpath's text and Wil Tirion's illustrations, the Princeton Field Guides Stars & Planets is a wonderful guide to the stars, planets, galaxies, and our own solar system. It will help in getting that elusive target into the finder and onto the eagerly awaiting eye."---Mark Mortimer, Universe Today

"Praise for previous editions: "The handy size, copious illustrations, maps, and charts, as well as the latest in astrophotography throughout . . . practically beg[s] astronomers to take [Stars and Planets] along to star parties."" ― Astronomy

"Praise for previous editions: "Comprehensive yet compact…. this beautiful guide is suitable for amateurs and novices as well as stargazers more acquainted with navigating their night skies.""---Irene Wanner, Seattle Times

"Praise for previous editions: "[A] rich resource for advanced amateurs, but novices will also like the star charts (both Northern and Southern hemispheres) and abundant explanatory text detailing each of the 88 constellations and the stars within them, as well as the sun, moon, planets, and Milky Way."" ― Library Journal

"The handy size, copious illustrations, maps and charts, as well as the latest in astrophotography throughout . . . practically beg[s] astronomers to take [Stars and Planets] along to star parties." ― Astronomy

"This marvelously dense field guide tells you everything you need to know to find your way around the sky, whether you are an eager novice who is just looking around or a serious observer using binoculars or a telescope." ― Discover

"Praise for previous editions: "This marvelously dense field guide tells you everything you need to know to find your way around the sky, whether you are an eager novice who is just looking around or a serious observer using binoculars or a telescope."" ― Discover

"Praise for previous editions: "[A] first-class pocket field guide to the sky…. The charts, by Wil Tirion, are what we would expect of this master of celestial cartography; they are uncluttered, easy to read, and compress many (but not too many!) objects in a small space…. [A] very nicely produced book.""---John Mosley, Planetarian

Review

"Ridpath and Tirion are an unbeatable team. Ridpath writes concisely and movingly about the sky, and Tirion's charts are beautifully done and easy to follow. This is a superb guide to the night sky."―David H. Levy, author of Shoemaker by Levy (Princeton) and co-discoverer of the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9.
