Yep, it's a textbook. A science textbook to be exact.
One I read from cover to cover.
McMillian's attempt at lightheartedness whilst discussing such a confusing and nearly unfathomable subject helped make this textbook easier to read. I won't lie, I still don't understand half of what I read, but I did become enthralled with our solar system, I could tell you all sorts of interesting fun facts about it, and I'm soooo buying a telescope now. =)
The end.
