The New Astronomy Book By Danny R. Faulkner

The New Astronomy Book By Danny R. Faulkner , is a unique astronomy textbook for students and astronomy enthusiasts alike in a "multi-age format".  This guidebook is well adapted as an astronomy review  text for younger elementary aged readers as well as  middle and high school aged students.  The quality presentation of this book rivals that of many popular science themed books for children and adults.  From the cover to the full color photos, graphics, professional astronomy photos and professional scholarship- this book is sure to capture the attention of any  reader interested in astronomy and science. The information represents the latest scientific research.  Even social and historical background information is covered for a well rounded experience, integrating concepts from additional academic disciplines. The photos and illustrations in of themselves are thorough and represent the latest of scientific discovery.   It is a hybrid of a manual, technical guide and an educational text.  It is useful for learning as well as expanding on one's hobby of astronomy and stargazing.  This is a multi-function - multi purpose thorough book. This book isn't only educational for kids, but adult readers- parents, educators and enthusiasts will also enjoy this book.  And, most of all, the author ties this information with a biblical based view of creation.

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.
