To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have no idea about the zodiac constellations in the sky close to home let alone the galaxies beyond. So now I am retired thought I'd take the plunge and find out with this little book. Used to watch Patrick Moore's TV programmes but was distracted by his expressive eyebrows so never absorbed the info given. He has an easy way of expressing himself so hopefully this will be the case with his book which arrived today. He already has plenty f user friendly reviews which is another reason for this purchase.
I enjoyed reading this book and wish I had read it earlier in life. I have always been a fan of Sir Patrick's and while reading this I got a real sense of his quick talking and encyclopedic knowledge of the night sky. Some later ideas and concepts could be a little tough for some non scientists, however, if you're a young astronomer or scientist and are unsure as to what you wish to study beyond school, this book will help you make an educated decision.
