The New Astronomy Book By Danny R. Faulkner
This astronomy book provides a well rounded background for the science student or hobbyist; technical enough to capture the interest of an astronomy enthusiast, yet simple and broad to serve as an introduction to the study of astronomy. Presenting science in such an appealing format makes learning more obtainable for students and the public in general. Once again, Master Books has published a text that meets the high standards of scholarship. Exploring the World of Astronomy: From the Center of the Sun to the Edge of the Universe by John Hudson Tiner is also published by Master books, yet the limitations of the black and white printing make Tiner's volume appear "dated". I feel this new volume on Astronomy has integrated the best of astronomy research while implementing advanced astronomical photography. I could spend quite a bit of time, studying and meditating on the beautiful celestial photos. The sharp high quality photos are the best feature- as well as the wealth of information. There is even a pull out poster in full color as well. As a blogger for Moms of Master books, I received this book, published by Master Books, an imprint of New Leaf Publishers, for the purpose of writing this review.
