“This book traces the development of astronomy as a scientific discipline through profiles of Ptolemy, Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, and Herschel. After an introduction on the beginnings of the science, each successive chapter is devoted to the work of one man. . . . The easy-to-read, interesting text occupies about two-thirds of the page. The wide margins include additional biographical or astronomical information and definitions of relevant terms. Plentiful black-and-white photographs.”
