it was amazing

This is an extremely readable basic primer on astronomy. It doesn't overwhelm, but it's sufficiently detailed to leave you feeling that you've acquired a wealth of fascinating scientific knowledge.

The big plus is the writing style. Patrick Moore's familiar voice and wry wit shine through, enhancing the experience and making you feel as if you're with him, inside an extended edition of The Sky at Night!
