Science books can have a bad habit of being stuffy and boring, even books aimed at the layman. This is an excellent example of a well written mini encyclopaedia of space; cram-packed on every page with photographs, illustrations, maps and star charts.
Highly recommended for adults and mature children alike. ( )
