At first glance this book appears to be of the coffee-table genre because of its size, format, layout and huge and stunning pictures, some spanning the full two pages of a spread. But when you start reading it you soon realise that its comprehensive content presents a full window on the Universe, uncovered layer by layer. It is well illustrated with very complete picture captions, packed with supplementary information presented in text boxes and it includes a glossary of certain terms, marked in bold when they occur for the first time in the text.
