[...] with the incorporation of scientists' voices, it was more like storytelling than what I am used to from other books. That kept it interesting. Hearing from scientists directly also humanizes the science, which I think is a good thing.--Julia Kregenow, Pennsylvania State University
I enjoyed the writing style of basing it around interviews with current astronomers. It reads like an article of a pop-sci magazine, but much more in-depth.--Andrew Fittingoff, Peralta Community College
The writing style is one of the best I have read. I have done review of physics, astronomy, and earth sciences books, and by far this author has been one of the most pleasant I have encountered.--Celso Batalha, Evergreen Valley College
I like how he brings into the mix real people in Astronomy and how they work and think...I think that might help keep students reading the material.--Michael Frey, Cypress College
