'This book is eminently suitable for the young, first-time observer ! the spiral binding and very heavy high-quality paper do allow the pages to be doubled backwards for ease of use outdoors, without destroying the book!' Gnomon '! should encourage new observers to go outside and start finding their way around the sky.' Contemporary Physics 'Exploring the Starry Sky will guide you effortlessly through 700 or 800 of these stars !
