Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'... a fascinating cornucopia of constellation facts and figures ...' Adrian Ashford, New Scientist

' ... one of the best ... a lot of goodies for every amateur astronomer, both for the observing one and for the armchair astronomer ... All of us have something to learn from this excellent book.' Jan Sandstrom, Astronomi und Raumfahrt

'If you want to have a reference book about constellations, then you want to have this book on your shelves.' Pam Spence, Astronomy Now

'The book has some novel ideas for the presentation of a wealth of unusual material and I found no mistakes. It is not a bedside book for browsing. It is a work to reside on a shelf for reference, mostly for amateur astronomers' use, but also for anyone with an interest in the stars.' Paul Murdin, imes Higher Education Supplement
