Do NOT order from -Daily Deals-.

They shipped me the incorrect text. I ordered "The Cosmic Perspective: Stars, Galaxies and Cosmology" (ISBN-13: 978-0321642707) but instead they incorrectly sent me "The Cosmic Perspective: The Solar System" ( ISBN-13: 978-0321642677 ). This has really inconvenienced me, as I need the text to study for my college Astronomy course, but now I have to order the correct book from a different seller, and I have to wait for it to arrive while I need to by studying for my course.

On the other hand, the book is good! Real life analogies and well-designed diagrams help you understand tricky abstract astronomy concepts. I recommend it for students (like myself) that have a general high-school science background, but are not science college majors.

****** NOTE: With the 6th edition there are 2 different books. One is "Stars, Galaxies and Cosmology" while the other is "The Solar System" -- and these books have different chapters and contents. Make sure you select the right one you need. *******
Good. I plan to keep for reference.
This was a book I needed for my astronomy class and ended up being one of the only books I used all semester. Great condition when I received it.
I think this product definitely lived up to and exceeded its expectations and was exactly what I was looking to buy!
I still cannot believe that I got this book for this cheap price!!! Book condition is awesome and clean, and I got it in a few days! I had to get it early as possible because I have to do my quiz by Tues, and I am glad that I got it on earlier than I expected!! Thanks for an awesome offer!
Horrible! I bought these book new instead of used because I needed it with an access code and it didn't come with the access code I needed. Nowhere in the description did it say that this access code was not provided.
I got this book about a month ago and I love it. Even though it was a used text book, it is in perfect conditions and the best part about this purchase was the price. I only paid $4.74 including shipping and tax!!!
Best Physics book I have ever read!
