Series: Facts on File. If you love line drawings, you will love this book. The sketches are neat and detailed. The book is very well organized, starting with Astronomy and ending with Symbols. The feel of the book is that of a classic work. In some sections (such as household items, clothing) it is way superior to other works sch as DK's "Ultimate Visual Dictionary". Within each category (or subcategory) you can find a line drawing of what you need to know about, then look at the labels and understand the parts. One of the things I find truly amazing about this book is that it illustrates how precise a vocabulary each "thing" has.

I bought a bunch of astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology dictionaries. This has become the first one I go to because it seemed to be the one I was always ending my searches with (the others didn't have the term I was looking up). It doesn't always have the term I want, but more often than any other dictionary.

I can't praise this publication highly enough. For anyone who is interested in astronomy, it's a must. Not just a world class reference work, but one to be read for pleasure. You may well find yourself opening it at random and learning -- and enjoying.

What's more, the production values are first rate. Although the format is soft cover, the paper and the printing are of as high a quality as you'll find anywhere.

I can't imagine being without this book; I only wish I could give it more than five stars.
