From the Publisher"The historical material in Chapters 4 and 5 is very sensitively presented, nuanced, and really quite up-to-date with respect to contemporary historical researches. It is a distinct cut above most of the texts I have been asked to review."
"I was impressed with the clarity of the illustrative color figures and the effective use of very recent science results (e.g. images from Chandra). I will certainly recommend the book for concept-based courses in astronomy."
"FOUNDATIONS is a remarkably well written book on introductory astronomy. The figures and diagrams are clear, instructive, visually aesthetic and of exceptionally high quality. I commend the author for this book which includes the latest discoveries in the various fields of astronomy."
