The Stars In Their Courses

By Isaac Asimov

Rating: 3 stars

This is one of Asimov’s many non-fiction popular science books, covering astronomy and physics in an amiable tone, yet still managing to derive Newton’s laws of motions from first principles and easy for a layman to understand. My astronomy isn’t particularly good so this helped cover some patches there, and getting a refresher course in Newtonian motion was nice as well.
