"This new book is delightful and I learned a few new facts by reading it...The work is well researched, thought out, and executed...For those of you who have not yet been introduced to variable stars, enjoy this introduction. For those already acquainted with 'variables,' give yourself a few cloudy nights with this delightful book!" The Strolling Astronomer
