Read Kindle ♊ Asimov on Astronomy ☫ Gamegeek-denter.de

A interesting collection of essays, although they lack an overarching theme beyond simply astronomy and I imagine a lot of the information is now outdated, whether subtly or majorly. As with the other "Asimov on..." books, this is a collection off essays on astronomical topics drawn form his first 5 collections of essays.

(Mine is paperback) He takes the reader on a scientific voyage of the stars exploring all the possibilities of the universe which he mixes with some humor. Great read, thoroughly entertaining and scientifically educational but no van allen radiation belt. Asimov is really good at taking a very hard topic and making it accessible to John Everyman. I learned a whole lot about astronomy. But I was able to apply it immediately. I have a friend who is an astrophysicist. I read his CV and some of his research, and I actually understood what was there. This was an interesting view on astronomy because the article in the book were from the early 60's with some footnote updates from the mid to late70's. I was impressed with how some of his theories have held up. It was also entertaining because he refrained from referring to the new planet Pluto as a planet which kept those articles quite accurate today. How convenient. An excellent (if, alas, dated) collection of essays on astronomy. Highly recommended! I tried to read thisonly because I'm wanting to read through all the books we actually have in our library.

It was soooo boring to me. Maybe if I had read it 15 years ago, I'd care and get it, but now, it's just monotonous and excruciatingly painful.

I read the chapter on the moon, asteroids, and a couple others, but just really couldn't get into it at all. It's quite technical, scientific, and mathematical. I was hoping it would make astronomy a bit easier to understand, but it didn't.

There's also a very good likelihood that a large portion of what's in it is completely out of date. I rated this two stars not because it lacked fascinating bits, but because some of the chapters left me wanting to kill Asimov. He would pose a question in the opening paragraph, for example, "Why don't the stars light up the sky at night?" and then spend the next 15 pages waltzing around the question, but NEVER answering it. I had to google a few of the questions he posed just to satisfy my curiosity. I'm not disputing that he is a prolific, brilliant author, with an otherwordly work ethic, but some of his books are just so disjointed and streamofconscious that it's a wonder they were even published. Cut this book down to 40 pages, loose the fluff, and I'd probably rate it 4 stars. Nice essays. Especially mooning around, where he gives convincing reasons that the moon is not a moon at all, but half of a double planet. I read this because I was curious to see how in the 1960s, Asimov would predict the future of space exploration. The book is long outdated and isn't practical to read today. There are far more current books of this type. Nevertheless, it's a good book to read to appreciate his genius and get inspired.
