From the reviews: "This book give a chronology of cosmic discoveries, starting with Stonehenge ... and ending up with very recent results which have been achieved using spacecrafts. ... Many tables like the list of the brightest galaxies and list of the nearest stars, supernovae etc., make this a very useful source for astrophysical facts. This book is aimed to be useful both for amateur astronomers and professional astrophysicists." (Hans-Jurgen Schmidt, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1140, 2008)
