Gravity from the Ground Up.

This book was supposed to delve into the “physical” aspect of astronomy, but it doesn’t even explain the concepts well. The text looks at the properties of stars, star formation and evolution; neutron stars and physicall holes; the nature of galaxies; and the structure of the universe.

This revised and updated comprehensive introduction to astronomical objects and phenomena applies basic physical principles to a variety of situations. This fully revised and updated text is a comprehensive introduction to astronomical objects and phenomena.
