Here is an affordable book containing answers to many questions concerning astronomy. This will become your most earmarked book.
A review of "Back to the Astronomy Cafe"
Pretty much near the Genesis of the modern Internet, Sten Odenwald has set out to help folks with questions about Astronomy by actually answering them. This book is the next in a series of common questions he has taken the time to answer in years past.
The book is divided in sections including "The Sun - our Day Star," "The Universe - All that was, is or will be," "The Earth and Moon - Our Cosmic Home" and my favorite "The Unthinkable - Questions no one ever thought to Ask."
Also included is a nice glossary of astronomy terms. However, my favorite section is the Tables, with "The Cosmic Time line" my most earmarked section. It takes you from just after the Big Bang to 10 to the 10 to the 26 years in the future spanning 12 pages.
If you are looking for a unique thing to give your astronomer friend, this may prove to be a sitting room classic.
For about $16, this paperback book will be the most twisted looking thing you have because you will have a hard time putting it down.
Get yourself a copy and give one to your astronomy friend.
