crazy mashine
This book was a required book for class. I enjoyed the book it was a boring or dry read, it had quality photos. A good school book.

As stated in the title, bought this book for a college course and found it to be a good read and a pleasure to learn from. Lots of great color pictures other artwork.
i found this book to be very helpful for my intro to astronomy class..the pictures were very helpful
Another class book I needed. The book was pretty cool looking and in good condition but still it wasn't something I personally buy for myself, it just mostly help save me money.
