The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Sun based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I've read dozens of popular books about the Sun over the years, and THIS ONE REALLY STANDS OUT. Jay does a wonderful job of presenting the incredible variety of exciting, new knowledge about our nearest star and the source of our lives and environment in a delightfully accessible style. The book is very thorough and accurate, but above all a pleasure to read. The author's style - honed from a lifetime of textbook authorship - combined with his very profound understanding of the subject - as a leading solar researcher - is put to good use in the book's artful mixture of traditional expository material combined with many, many small sidebars chock full with very interesting anecdotes and factoids. I wish that I had written this book; I'm delighted that Jay did!
