This brief paperback text incorporates the hallmarks of the Chaisson/McMillan texts: an exceptional writing style, an emphasis on critical thinking and visualization, and a leading-edge technology program. Designed for students with little or no scientific background, Astronomy, 2/e has been streamlined throughout with a more open, student-friendly design. In addition, a free electronic multimedia version of the text is included with each copy. The CD contains approximately 35 updates on events and discoveries that have occurred since the print based book was published.

From the Publisher:

Like its best-selling predecessor, Astronomy Today (1993), this text presents scientific literacy in the context of astronomy, teaching students to think critically and analytically about the physical world and the development of science. The text requires a minimum level of simple algebra and trigonometry (less than Astronomy Today) and maintains the parent text's visual emphasis through an illustrative program sure to become the market standard.

From the Back Cover:

This book incorporates an exceptional writing style, an emphasis on critical thinking and visualization, and a leading-edge technology program. Focus streamlined more directly on core topics, including a briefer introduction that combines the first two chapters from the previous edition, interplanetary debris and the solar system now covered together and stellar explosions are now covered with stellar evolution. For anyone interested in Astronomy.
