KIRKUS REVIEW

This is an explanation and description of solar phenomena written for the layman with an unusual clarity of style reminiscent of Asimov or Ley. The main facts known to date about the sun are introduced in 10 skillfully organized chapters that follow each other in tight logical progression. These are: The Light of Life, The Birth of the Sun; The Solar Furnace; Storms of Fire; The Solar Atmosphere; Our Wandering Sun; The Main Sequence; Strange Suns; The Death of the Sun; and The Origin of the Universe. This is a book that anyone can learn from and shows the judgment of a fine teacher at work in the presentation.
