'Almost every aspect of astronomy is contained within this publication ... No matter what field of astronomy one works in there will almost certainly be a paper contained in this book which will have some relevance to you. It is inspirational in that it shows what we, as a species, can achieve when we are allowed to, so even if you have no intention of every becoming a 'Pole-Cap' observer there will probably be something in here to stimulate you.'
