By Frank A. Whorton on March 22, 2005
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In A to Z encyclopedia format, has a great cross-reference system which highlights a word or term if it is described elsewhere in the book. Most definitions are a little too brief for me, but what I love most about this book is its listing of the brightest stars in a constellation along with their distances which is wonderful for me since my kids are always asking how far away certain stars are and it's good to have one place to go to answer quickly. Has a very small center section with color photos -- somewhat unnecessary and probably raises the price of the book too. A great source for an amateur astronomer like me, but if you are looking for a good "first" astronomy book -- go with Dickenson's "NIGHTWATCH" and buy this one a bit later.
