I loved this. John Scalzi is a great read for fun sci fi stories and having him give a basic, understandable explanation of the universe was fabulous. 3 1/2 stars for the book, with an extra half star because it was written by a fiction author.
This is outside my normal reading selections, but it was written by John Scalzi, so I gave it a try. I enjoyed it more than I normally would - it's basically a field guide to star-watching, which isn't that enjoyable to read in daylight on a bus. The first half of the book is very informative, though, and the second half would be useful if I were starwatching.

lupa nge-add, padahal sudah dipinjamkan ke dua orang, dan sudah balik kembali ckckck.
lumayan untuk tahu-tahu dikit tentang alam semesta dimana kita tinggal. :-)
A nice guide for every stargazer.
Nice explanation about our own star-system.
Star charts for every star constellation from A to Z.
lupa meng-add buku ini, meski dah berpindah tangan :D
Full of interesting facts for stargazers!
Very informative, good to brush up on the facts.

John Scalzi, having declared his absolute boredom with biographies, disappeared in a puff of glitter and lilac scent.
