Fascinating information! It introduces the reader in simple terms and through pictures and diagrams all things about space. Such as: the different types of stars, black holes, origin of the universe, how distance is measured across space, how space objects are viewed, maps of space, constellations, etc, etc. After reading this book, when I come across a space news story or a space program on TV, I found myself much more informed as to what they are talking about. This book actually increased my interest in space. This book, or one similar to it, should be a required reading for high school students. Heads up though, the book was updated in 2009 and given how space discoveries are occurring quickly these days, it will need to be updated at some point again.
