Astronomy in Depth fills the need for a textbook that covers pre-university level Astronomy courses (in the UK, the GCSE syllabuses) and provides numerical examples to help students. It is also written as a serious foundation in Astronomy for amateurs who want to take a more detailed approach than can be found in the bulk of introductory astronomy books. Almost every aspect of astronomy is considered, from Earth and its place in the solar system, through instrumentation, the planets, stars, and galaxies, to black holes and the beginnings of cosmology. This book is perfect for anyone who wants to get to know astronomy in detail, as quickly as possible.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The numerical work is really quite simple and basic, and should frighten nobody who has a genuine wish to learn a little more than might be gleaned from one of the many coffee-table books covering similar ground...This is a useful book for students, and would also suit the teacher who may touch on astronomical topics during a science course. The style and content will allow the text to be revised in years to come as new discoveries and theories prove to make this necessary, and at a cost that is very appropriate for the target market.
