Two New Book Reviews

Posted by Marc on December 29th, 2007

Cover of Tarnas's latest bookcover of Thompson's observing guide bookLydia has reviewed two new books for those who enjoy a night in with a good read when observing conditions aren’t so great outside. The two books are quite different. The first, Cosmos and Psyche by Richard Tarnas, tries to provide a rational basis for astrology. The second, Illustrated Guide to Astronomical Wonders by Robert and Barbara Thompson, is a more conventional astronomy book but – as Lydia found out – its quality sets it apart from other observing guides out there.

For more read the review of Cosmos and Psyche
and the review of Illustrated Guide to Astronomical Wonders.
