As i said it is a tree of knowledge and improved a lot of my skills of astronomy. The diagrams were very affective and improved by view about astronomy. previously, i thought astronomy was just sitting out there observing planets and stars but now its like a whole new world to me. I will also benefit the knowledge for my geography exam and unit tests. but i would like more information about the instruments used, like the telescope. i would like to know more about how they are operated and do they need special skills . this book was similar to my previous book. it has all the information but lacks the sub-points of the topic. I hope i find a better book which will steal my heart and get a five star rating from me. bye !!! thank you !!!
