While encyclopedic in its coverage, the organization is rather unconventional (more like a textbook than an encyclopedia). Articles are arranged in sections rather than alphabetically, with a 16-page table of contents providing overviews of each section and page numbers for chapters and biographies. Cram-packed with images, charts, and color-coded textboxes (with more images screened behind), sections cover the history of astronomy, the laws of physics, quantum reality, cosmology, astrophysics, the solar system, professional and amateur astronomy, and space exploration. Oversize: 10.25x11.25. Ridpath is editor of the world-famous Norton's Star Atlas . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
