From the reviews: "I read astronomy books both for information and for entertainment. Rarely do I come across one that provides gobs of both. Kenneth Lang's Parting the Cosmic Veil easily makes that cut. It's also beautifully written ... . This book can be appreciated by the general reader, but its broad, imaginative scope is sure to benefit professionals too, especially those who teach. In short, this is a must read!" (Leif J. Robinson, Sky & Telescope, Vol. 113 (3), March, 2007)
