Series: SAUNDERS GOLDEN SUNBURST SERIES. Pasachoff deals with stellar nuclear fusion and stellar evolution with unparalled clarity. He has an "illuminating" chapter on black holes

Series: SAUNDERS GOLDEN SUNBURST SERIES. He has an "illuminating" chapter on black holes. The text is somewhat lacking on cosmology, but, perhaps, that is best because of the many recent advances in that area. The last half of the book treats the solar system very adequately. The book is complemented with many helpful tables and figures.

I study this course during college time as a part of elective course. It is part of physics department. It is interesting book for those who are willing to learn about Astronomy and explore their knowledge in the the field of Astronomy.

This book is very useful and clear. If does cover a large area of astronomy and it is definitely a good reference book. I recommend it. It is a bit costly if I did not make a deal over the net.So, shop around. I got it for $50!

I first heard of Professor Jay M. Pasachoff when I decided a few years ago to write a book, then develop it into an original fictional film project about the 27th Century. My first stop in my endeavor was to go to NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center to find out what unlimited funds and seven hundred years could buy me in ship design. Then, I wanted to know what I would find once I got there so that I could write a great story that would be considered contemporary fiction in the 27th Century. I searched all of the space and science magazines. Nothing. Then I went to the library. Very little. Then, I went to the Internet. A little more. Then I went to the bookstore. Then I opened a book edited by Professor Pasachoff, called "Stars And Planets." There is absolutely no better roadmap to the stars in the known Universe - and I have looked everywhere for the best.
Then, only recently, I became aware that Professor Pasachoff actually has a "textbook" out called "Astronomy: From The Earth To The Universe."
I became intrigued and based on a very good recommendation, I decided to buy it...
Two days after I opened this hidden treasure for the first time, I am finally able to put it down long enough to tell everyone about it.
There are now two books that I totally recommend to everyone who is interested in seeing reality through the eyes of God as best as humans can perceive that reality. One is the Bible, and the other is this very book by Professor Pasachoff. I have learned more about the Universe from this book than I have through three decades of "Star Trek." No collection of books or videos can match this organized presentation, a single-source "greatest hits" assembly of the thoughts of our best scientists and pictures from our best instruments (including many from the Hubble Space Telescope).
This is a well-illustrated, brilliantly presented book that has almost a thousand pages, all friendly to the novice amateur astronomer (or movie producer).
The only pitfall is that it removes the need to build advanced, expensive spaceships to actually explore the wonders of the Milky Way Galaxy. Why bother, when all humanity really needs to do is read this book?

I used this textbook for school. Super expensive, but cheaper than the bookstore. It gets the job done for the class. I wish I could make something back on it beside less than half.
I got this book back in 1982 ... I enjoyed the ideas and thoughts brought up on astronomy. Now, much of the information is out of date. I see there is a newer version and I look forward to seeing what is in the 1999 version.
