"...The book is well organized and conveniently divided into four sections. ... A feature of the text which I found particularly appealing was the almost conversational style in which it is written, ... making it riveting reading. Another aspect which was striking was the manner in which the authors very successfully integrated historical and factual information. ... the book provides first-year students with a solid basis on which to continue studies in astronomy or physics."
-Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, Vol. 7, Issue 1, June 2006

"... the strengths of the old version have been retained ... and the book has been brought up to date with, for example, the sections on CCDs and modern telescopes."
- Vik Dhillon, Sheffield University, UK

"Members will find themselves returning to it again and again for help with those really searching questions. A book worth considering."
- Jeffrey Barham, Popular Astronomy
