This is an excellent, concise review of basic astronomy. Short chapters include problems (with solutions) at the end, and brief questions throughout. This is not an in depth review of astronomy, but just a brief overview of the basics. One of the strengths of this book is the inclusion of a lot of web sites and references for further investigation.

I read "The Star Wars Question and Answer Book About Space" 40 years ago now (deep sigh as I wonder where that time went) back when there seemed to be a lot more optimism about space travel. The book includes artist impressions about giant space stations that could house 100s of people and would be ready by that magical year of 2000. Shame the millennium bug stopped that from becoming a reality.

Overall, some good (if dated) introductory facts on space, and of course some drawings of C3PO and R2D2, picked presumably because they were the highest profile heroes that they wouldn't have had to pay royalties to.… (més)
