Astronomy A Self Teaching Guide

Tle has been making it easy for beginners to uickly grasp the basic concepts of astronomy for over 25 years Updated with the latest discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics this newest edition of Dinah Moche's classic guide now includes many Web site addresses for spectacular images and news And like all previous editions it is packed with va. This book takes a somewhat different approach from most of the other beginning astronomy books I ve read Author Dinah L Moche appears to be operating under the assumption that her book will be used as a supplement for some other course of study either as an aid in an astronomy class or at the very least a buttress for a pre existing general knowledge of the subject And as such it works uite well Moche does an outstanding job of providing clear easy to understand explanations and examples of many of the basic concepts of the science Of the 12 chapters I enjoyed and learned at least something from all but two the chapter on astrophysics was a little vague and jargon heavy and the chapter on extraterrestrial life covered topics outside my areas of interest I don t think I d start with this as my very first guide to the topic but those with a little astro knowledge under their belts or an exam to pass in the near future should find it a worthwhile read

    I bought it five years back when I was very new to astronomy and recall it being helpful It was a bit dry but it's really a text book not a book to set the spark of enthusiasm
