KIRKUS REVIEW

Straight fact, without sugar coating, and a good introductory book on astronomy, for youngsters already interested in the subject and wanting a first book. The material is not handled in such a way as to stimulate interest in the novice, so much as the Bernhard book, previously reported, but virtually the same ground is covered, and the approach is from the general to the specific, instead of the reverse. The sense of distance is built -- the magnitude of the universe -- before the author gets down to concrete (can the word be used there?) instances.
