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..

Michael A. Seeds has been Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Franklin and Marshall (F&M) College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, since 1970.

Seeds' love for the history of astronomy led him to create upper-level courses on Archaeoastronomy and Changing Concepts of the Universe. His research interests focus on variable stars and the automation of astronomical telescopes. Mike is coauthor with Dana Backman and Michele Montgomery of HORIZONS HYBRID: EXPLORING THE UNIVERSE, Thirteenth Edition, and UNIVERSE HYBRID: SOLAR SYSTEM, STARS AND GALAXIES, Eighth Edition, both published by Cengage Learning.
