By using a ''stars-first'' order, Seeds enables the student to understand how a small set of natural processes are responsible for a wide variety of phenomena and a diverse assortment of objects and gain perspective on our planet in relation to the rest of the universe. Breaking from the tradition of structuring a book according to the history of astronomical discoveries, Seeds' organization allows student to understand concepts and processes rather than memorize facts. Seeds' use of figures bolsters this understanding..
