Review: The Universe: From Flat Earth to Quasar

User Review  - Tom Lowe - Goodreads

I read this book at the age of 13 after seeing the Perseid meteor showers that August. I understood Asimov's explanation of the universe so well because of the straightforward way he explained it. One of the most influential books I ever read. I enjoyed every word, and I didn't want it to end. Read full review

User Review  - Eduardo - Goodreads

Great reference for a starter on this topic, better to update yourself with more reading from later discoveries and what is missing from the date published (a lot!) to date. Read full review
