I really enjoy this book. I've learned a lot from it, and it's taught me a lot I didn't already know. I'm a beginner and I found this information to be very useful.

This book is an introduction to astronomy at about the junior high level. If that's what you're looking for, then it will work fine, but if you want something more advanced and substantial you should look elsewhere. B&N requires a star rating, so I gave it 4. It's not a bad book for what it does, but it doesn't teach what I was hoping it would.
