9780748407484: Astronomy Through the Ages: The Story Of The Human Attempt To Understand The Universe

From an historical perspective, this text presents an entirely non- mathematical introduction to astronomy from the first endeavours of the ancients to the current developments in research enabled by cutting edge technological advances. Free of mathematics and complex graphs, the book nevertheless explains deep concepts of space and time, of relativity and quantum mechanics, and of origin and nature of the universe. It conveys not only the intrinsic fascination of the subject, but also the human side and the scientific method as practised by Kepler, defined and elucidated by Galileo, and then demonstrated by Newton.

Review:

"Any reasonably intelligent non-astronomer will find in this book a great deal to interest him, and if he has imagination he will be enthralled by it. . . . It is written with an enthusiastic dignity and it well reflects the excitement and the majesty of its subject."--Observatory
