    Good

    A pretty good book concidering the other books in the Don't Know Much About series. This book captures the basic consept of astronomy. The most notiable down side is that this book is about fifteen years out of date. Most people wouldn't notice this, so it is okay. I do recommend this book for people who want to learn more about astronomy and the universe we live in. Overall, it was a great experience reading such a good book. It teaches you all you need to know about astronomy and how our beautiful universe works. Again, I would really recommend this breathtaking book and al of the others im the Don't Know Much About series. I am looking foreward to more.

    Good read for the layperson

    As with the other entries in the Don't Know Much About series, DKMA the Universe is a fun overview of the history and basic concepts in astronomy. The book is divided into five major sections covering a main concept ( the history of astronomy, for example) and further broken down into a dozen or so bite sized 'questions' in each section dealing with specific aspects of the overarching theme. The only negative is that much of the information, especially in regards to cosmology, is nearly 15 years out of date.

    Everthing they taught you in school and more

    Kenneth C. Davis gives you a better and more researched understanding of the earth and everything around it. He encourages your mind to think.
