I've never found a more comprehensive book on anything ever, until I found this gem. From the fiery depths of the earth to the swirling lights of the universe, this book is awe inspiring from beginning to end. No detail is overlooked, no stone is unturned and the rich depth of the text envelopes you with the vast unknown. Great quality images make me yearn for a life with such beauty. The night sky maps are beautiful and accurate.
