Gribbin & Gribbin outline their goal right at the outset: to bring both the flavour of Feynman the magician, and the wizardry of Feynman the scientist, to a larger audience which might otherwise not be aware of his remarkable contributions to 20th-century physics

Gribbin & Gribbin outline their goal right at the outset: to bring both the flavour of Feynman the magician, and the wizardry of Feynman the scientist, to a larger audience which might otherwise not be aware of his remarkable contributions to 20th-century physics. In that goal they are successful, though the work's primary weakness is a palpable distinction between the enthusiasm with which its two elemental ingredents are communicated.

Renowned science writers John and Mary Gribbin team up with one of the most historic scientific sites in the world—the Royal Observatory, Greenwich—to take readers on a stunning visual tour of the universe. This riveting journey moves from our home planet outwards to the Moon, Sun, Inner and Outer Solar Systems, Milky Way, and other galaxies. Not only do the Gribbins discuss the always-intriguing topic of alien life, but they divulge little-known facts (Venus is the only planet in our solar system to rotate backwards), as well as all the basics beginning armchair astronomers need to know. Dramatic four-color photographs complement the informative text, giving readers a sense of what it might be like to be an astronaut…and go where no one has gone before.

If you have some interest in astronomy, and would like to learn more without enduring an overly technical manual, this might work for you. Dr Gribbin is a British astrophysicist (University of Cambridge) who communicates easily. The book can be opened to any page and enjoyed; the kiddos liked it so much, they've read it twice.

I bought this for my husband who is interested in astronomy and has a small telescope. He said that this book was just okay, nothing special. He commented that there were too many historical references. He was looking for a basic guide to stargazing.
