Comment on Astronomy Within Reach

Bill Mciver

Your book is a treasure trove of information with a perfect blend of science, maths and up to date astronomy for the average person as well as the expert. I also love the apt quotations commencing the chapters. Its most valuable attributes, however are the unique Southern Hemisphere perspective and its "partnerships" with the cd, the Solar Model and references to websites. Its a complete package! I also like the easy reading style of the book, which would appeal to anyone.

I have yet to assemble the Solar Model but I am sure it will also be of great help and interest to our family in understanding the skies above (and below!!).

I would like to order another copy of your book for my grand-daughter who is 12 and very interested in science and astronomy.
