I really like the way astronomy is presented in this book. Instead of talking about what is what in astronomy, Philip explains what is not real astronomy. In the conventional way, books start with the solar system, then galaxy and then like, which is awesome but dull. Philip does not do it this way. He starts with what we have already known about astronomy, from movies, stories or other sources, and he tries to tell us how some explanations are wrong. This is really the first book I've every read in astronomy and definitely it opens up my mind.
