This is an all-around great book for anyone, even those who just want to learn more about our intriguing solar system, galaxy, and universe! I bought this book with the original intention of just using it for a class and getting rid of it but it is so interesting with very relevant, well organized information in an easy to read format. I have a learning disability and the explanations in this book simplify everything to make it so easy to understand and remember! I rely solely on this book as my means of learning in the class (online based class) and I am getting an A in the class! Best of all, it includes two CD's full of information and study guides to ready you for tests and exams.
The way the chapters and subjects are organized, it teaches you topic by topic what you need to know to understand how the universe works as we know it and is very honest when it comes to things that have not been discovered or things that may not be totally accurate because of insufficient evidence. They also talk about current theories that are being tested and hypotheses that are being tested. If you want to get into astronomy or just want to learn more, this book is definitely for you!
