KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is a concise and clear setting forth of stellar astronomy for the non-scientific layman. The author presents the stars--""suns in their own right""--their history, the means by which facts about them are gathered, systems of measurements, configurations, luminosity, and a host of other relevant detail. Indexed, appendixed, illustrated, this text with its bibliography provides a basis for further and deeper study in an absorbing area of scientific exploration.
