Discovering the Essential Universe 2ND Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on Discovering the Universe, this best-selling text is a shorter, less expensive option with a streamlined presentation of topics. While maintaining the themes and approach to astronomy found in the longer text, Discovering the Essential Universe presents only the essential information for students' reference, enrichment, and review with minimal pedagogy. With the same great graphics program and features, the new edition keeps students as up to date as possible by covering the new discoveries that scientists are making about the universe almost every day.

Book News Annotation:

Comins (U. of Maine) notes that his textbook is streamlined (e.g, lacks a CD-ROM) and is therefore less costly than standard astronomy texts. This update of the 2001 edition contains reorganized chapters on the standard topics and a new feature on "movie misconceptions" of the field. There is a companion Web site for instructors, Internet resources for students, color graphics, and technical and biographical appendices.
