The Stars of Heaven by Clifford A. Pickover
Finished reading on March 23, 2013
The book, as the title might suggest, is about stars. It’s about their evolution, different types, thermonuclear reactions etc. But not just about that. There’s also some fiction in the book that makes it a little more fun (and somewhat childish as well).
It gives a good overview of the topic and even I found something I hadn’t known before, so in general it’s fine. It’s easy enough to be understandable to most people.
However the writing is not as interesting as with some other authors.
