Phil Plait has written some great books. His Bad Astronomy blog is always entertaining and educational and he is a prolific Tweeter. The academic levels vary from post to post, book to book and tweet to tweet, so one could be a little apprehensive about what level of astronomy understanding one would need to appreciate this book. This book is pitched at those who are not overly knowledgeable about astronomy related facts. Having said that, it still threw up facts I did not know. His writing style is very easy going and I would have loved to have listened to Phil narrate the book himself. Kevin does an OK job, but Phil's exuberance would have lifted it another notch. I still gave it 5 stars, as the content is excellent.
