The Cosmic Perspective is an engaging, interesting, and very visual textbook. It explains astronomical concepts very clearly and I have enjoyed reading it for my class. The Cosmic Perspective, Sixth Edition provides the most engaging and up-to-date introduction to astronomy for non-science majors. Have you ever looked up at the moon and the stars and wondered why the moon looks a certain way or how far away that bright star is? If you have, you should buy this textbook! Recommended.






The Cosmic Perspective: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
