    1 thought on “Universe”

    1. I wanted to firm up my knowledge of general astronomy, so I googled to find textbooks used in universities, picked this one, and read it front to back, doing the problems at the end of each chapter. It's extremely clear and logical in organization, comprehensive in scope, and easy to read. It is meant for college freshmen, physics-based, with free use of algebra, but no calculus. It does not presuppose any background in science beyond high school, and gives frequent tips, cautions, and reminders [...]

    2. I learned a lot about current scientific thought on the universe and our solar system, its formation, nature, and laws of operation. There is a lot of satisfaction in learning about this. My knowledge about astonomy has grown. However, I feel we must balance our scientific thought with religious belief. Knowledge doesn't just come from what meets the eye; faith bears sway as well.

    3. This was my textbook for a year-long introductory astronomy course. It seems satisfactory as a non-formal survey textbook and includes all topics, from the solar system to galaxies to cosmology. I didn't use the online extras except to read some additional articles during the first semester of my astro studies, didn't bother this past semester. My main complaint would be the ample size and weight of the text versus its flimsy binding. Stupid publishers.

    4. I enjoyed this text which accompanied my introductory level astronomy course. The book covers topics ranging from observational astronomy to characteristics of planets in our solar system to quasars and pulsars. Visually, the book is extremely attractive and the accompanying text is thorough, yet accessible.
