'For those who want to learn about the constellations and bright stars, this book is all that they'll need.' Astronomy Now
'... charts big and detailed enough to be used easily ...' Sky Publishing Corporation
'What adds greatly to the value of the Guide is the obvious enthusiasm of the authors and their ability to convey it.' Journal of the British Astronomical Association
'I have not seen a better first guide to amateur astronomy.' Malcolm Gough, The Observatory
'... an ideal gift for the potential astronomer ...' Chris Clayton, The Observatory
'... two consummate professionals in the field have teamed up to produce an exemplary text with first rate illustrations to inspire the beginning sky gazer ... it is vitally important that the facts presented are accurate and clearly rendered. That is exactly what you get with this little gem of a book. In just 72 pages, the authors have compressed an enormous volume of astronomical knowledge and experience in the field ... As you'd expect, the book provides ephemera of the planets and solar eclipses until the end of 2014 and new sections devoted to how best observe them. The Moon maps are especially pretty too. With its modest price tag, I heartily recommend this text to just about anyone and it will take its place in my library alongside the seven other earlier editions going all the way back to the year I left school.' Neil English, Astronomy Now
'... delightful ... ideal for beginners and certain to inspire more advanced observers.' skyatnightmagazine.com
