Universe / Edition 5

Suitable for both one- and two-term courses in introductory astronomy, Universe is acclaimed for its spectacular images and engaging writing. No other text so clearly communicates the thrill of discovery in astronomy to all students, regardless of their scientific background.


  • Exciting, authoritative, and fully up-to-date, the lucid writing and lavish full-color artwork share with students the scientific way of knowing.
  • A flexible part structure and highlighted cross-references let instructors choose what they wish to cover—and when they wish to cover it.
  • For greater flexibility and student suppport, difficult math and physics are set off in optional boxes—now called Tools of the Astronomers' Trade and Looking Deeper into Astronomy—with extensive worked examples.
  • Problem-Solving Tips and Tools give students an extra edge in solving the unusual variety of chapter questions.
