Astronomy, the evolving universe – Michael Zeilik – Google Books
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Aug 23, Noelle rated it it was ok. This book probably rates higher astrinomy a two but not quite a three. The concepts were easy to understand, even for a novice, and I do believe that I grasped some new basic astronomy knowlege from reading it.
However, this is definitely not something to read in your free time just to satisfy a curiousity. It is pretty intense stuff. In my opinion, it would rate higher if it were divided into two separate books instead of one huge book. It would be far easier to work with that way.
