The sun is one topic we can't ignore. Not only does this blinding bright star provide the heat that sustains us; it is so huge that it accounts for nearly 99.9% of our solar system's mass. Richard Cohen's Chasing the Sun doesn't just stun us with "wow" scientific details; it draws on seven years of research in eighteen countries to explain what we are still learning about this brightest object in the sky. Just as significantly, Cohen demonstrates the sun is virtually omnipresent in the world's mythologies, religions, literature, and art. Highly readable and lavishly illustrated, this book lifts the shadows on an unavoidable subject.
