This has been on the shelf for years now. My wife has read this and others by Dava Sobel as she skillfully and enjoyably weave the story of the universe and some of its marvelous wonders in a way that is both educational and whimsical. I’ve just started the first two chapters but I’m already hooked by the story of our solar system and it’s Family of Planets circling and embracing our Stellar “mother”.
I’ll let you know how this turns out. -mike
