I subscribe to Bob Carroll's "Skeptic's Dictionary Newsletter" which today had its first issue.

In the "What We're Reading" section, it has a paragraph on the new Bad Astronomy book.



...the parts I am finding most interesting are the parts dealing with good astronomy: explanations of the tides, why moons face one way as they orbit their planets, and many other things we should have learned in school but probably didn't. The book is currently listing for under $12 at Amazon.com but would be a bargain at any price.


Just felt like sharing.

Ah, another satisfied customer. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Bob's book is another Wiley publication, so it's all in the family.

I found Bad Astronomy from a link on Bob's site. For my money, that you were linked on Skepdic.com was endorsement enough for me and I came over to see what you had to say. Been a happy poster ever since.
