Although Astronomy has been around for more than 5,500 years, astronomers say that we've learned more than 90% of what we know about the universe in just the last 50-and much of that in the last decade!

It is in lamen's terms, so it was very easy to comprehend. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to pursue astronomy, or even anyone who just wants to learn a bit more about our universe.

Series: The Complete Idiot's Guide. This was a great reference book for me, as I've been teaching astronomy to elementary homeschool students, but never actually taken a course in astronomy. I had the library book, but needed my own copy that I can underline. I didn't like some snide references to "those who believe in creationism" (not an exact quote), but the information was clearly presented in a way I could understand, so I can overlook such jibes.

And my office mate as a graduate student in Socorro was my friend and colleague Kevin Marvel, now with the American Astronomical Society. His humor, enthusiasm, friendship, and intelligence have been an inspiration. I also would like to acknowledge the employees of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.

I seem to always find the Complete Idiots Guides to be better written, easier to understand, and a better resource that the Dummies books. At a lower price too. These are great reference books and you don't have to read the whole book to find any information you are looking for. It's not a book on how to use a telescope, nor is it an advanced physics book on astronomy, but it will help you understand astronomy in all of it's facets. Every ameture astronomer should have this book. It is much more fun observing the stars when you have an idea about what you are looking at. This book should also help tie togeather various aspects of astronomy for any taking an astronomy course. Well written, easy to understand, with loads of information in an easy to access form.

Reading this book helped me decide on what telescope to buy, where to find the most popular stellular sights, and how to be a smart and patient astonomer. It is in lamen's terms, so it was very easy to comprehend. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to pursue astronomy, or even anyone who just wants to learn a bit more about our universe.

Very good for beginners.

There is truly a great wealth of information in this book, ranging from a "history" of astronomy profiling the great astronomers of the past and their accomplishments, to what kinds of things (stars, planets, etc) you should search for in the sky, the kind of telescope you should buy (if you are so inclined), along with information about our moon, our solar system and beyond. Also included is information about the different kinds of stars out there (everything from "white dwarves" to "red giants"), how the universe was created and how many other potential universe there are "out there." Particularly interesting to me were the descriptions of the various planets and also how "black holes" get formed.
The book's appendices also contain a wealth of information, a list of upcoming solar and lunar eclipses, a list of constellations, and other sources of information. Anyone with an interest in astronomy, be it an "amateur astronomer" setting up his telescope to search the skies or a lay person like me who wonders what other worlds are like will enjoy this book.

I own dozens of amateur astronomy books. Almost all of them are "hard." Why are they so difficult? They are difficult to the beginning amateur because most writers of these books are professional astronomers or physicists: pros who seem to get carried away with irrelevant points during the writing of these guides. I could see this every time I looked in many of the books: too much talk about the celestial sphere, page after page of mythology, endless telescope diagrams, famous science battles, mind-numbing physics, & so on. The meat of the matter was lost.
Not so with this book. De Pree & Axelrod - two pros - finally got it right. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Astronomy is different from all the rest. Snappily-written, fun, & easy to understand, this guide sticks to all the important points of amateur astronomy. This book really respects the amateur astronomer. It has been in my library for about 5 years, & I return to it frequently.
Buy this book if you want to painlessly learn amateur astronomy. You won't be disappointed.
I am a 13-year-old who has been interested in the astronomical sciences for many years. I've read many books on astronomy and cosmology, but the Complete Idiot's Guide to Astronomy is the best I've read for quick facts, and not just a bunch of words jumbled up that makes absolutely no sense at all. This book discusses many great things. Such as:
~discussions elaborating on important events, projects, isasues, or people in astronomy
~definitions of key terms used in astronomy
~startling astronomical facts and amazing trivia
~highlights important statistics, scientific laws and principles, measurements, and mathmatical formulas.
And all of that information just comes out of small boxes on the sides of the pages!!! So you can just imagine how much other information comes out of the actual text of the book!!!
Great read for anyone iterested in astronomy or interested in becoming part of this amazing and ancient form of science as a profession..like me!!!
