My Review

I am a sucker for any and all books that has to do with the Universe – even if I have no idea what is being said. I got all giddy when I saw this book being offered on NetGalley.com & got even more excited when I was able to read this & review it. I love to look at pictures of the universe & everything that goes along with that and this books did well on that aspect. This is a typical book that teaches subjects in an easy manner. I think I am a bit biased when it comes to anything with the universe. I think all books written about the universe would enthrall me for hours no matter what they where meant for.


I received this book from netgalley.com for a honest review.
