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:

Designed for those with little or no scientific background, Astronomy 2/e has been streamlined throughout with a more open, user-friendly design. In addition, a free electronic multimedia version of the book is included with each copy. Updated throughout for the most current and authoritative content and art available. New coverage includes searching for planets outside our solar system; the possibility of life on Mars and Jupiter's moon Europa; Galileo's data on Ganymede and Europa; and the latest studies on the possibility that comets brought water and complex molecules to Earth. Includes a CD-ROM containing electronic html version of text with hyperlinks, exclusive animations, videos, an interactive study guide
