    This has made me a very very very happy cosmology fanatic What an excellent book

    Some nice, and for the most part reasonably accurate factoids, but ultimately let down by poor simplistic science, contrived and pretensious mathematics and some well masked circular reasoning.On the plus side, few actual conclusions are drawn rather the oh so important implications and suggestions are left to speak for themselves Something they utterly fail to do of course, unless you ve already bought into the nonsense and have suspended critical faculties Reference to mystical ratios etc Some nice, and for the most part reasonably accurate factoids, but ultimately let down by poor simplistic science, contrived and pretensious mathematics and some well masked circular reasoning.On the plus side, few actual conclusions are drawn rather the oh so important implications and suggestions are left to speak for themselves Something they utterly fail to do of course, unless you ve already bought into the nonsense and have suspended critical faculties Reference to mystical ratios etc are amusing or amusingly na ve Nothingthan numerical coincidences and contrivances, and as any half competent amateur astronomer knows, what may beor less true at this point in history wasn t earlier, and won t be again in few centuries or millenia So there is no awe inspiring existential significance whatsoever Nothing especially special about the geometry.That said, there s not a great deal which is actively or spectacularly wrong in this book, but there s even less which is valuable, insightful and right A good book to read if you want to do the debunking sums yourself, but in the end about as intellectually satisfying as finishing a half completed medium sudoku.Were it not for the studious hat tipping to various fascinating ancient calendars, I d definitely say don t waste your time As it is, I d say that these are the most interesting parts by far, and can pique your interest, but equally there are far better treatments elsewhere, and which forego all the twee piffle

    This book is an excellent introduction to why eclipses occur and how various cultures, including today s, have reacted to them It is written for a wide audience, including those that no nothing much about astronomy, and could be understood by middle school level on up It has some fascinating anecdotes how eclipses changed the course of history I highly recommend it in preparation for the coming eclipse.

    Imagine you mistakenly teleported from another dimension and became trapped in some vast earthly wilderness You might keep a notebook about your observations, trying to understand this new world As a found object the notebook would be quite pretty, but if you showed it to a native earthling they might say, Yep, that s just what the spheres do They have cycles What s your point here, stranger And you might reply, But isn t the symmetry of all this magnificent It s so idyllic Well, gee w Imagine you mistakenly teleported from another dimension and became trapped in some vast earthly wilderness You might keep a notebook about your observations, trying to understand this new world As a found object the notebook would be quite pretty, but if you showed it to a native earthling they might say, Yep, that s just what the spheres do They have cycles What s your point here, stranger And you might reply, But isn t the symmetry of all this magnificent It s so idyllic Well, gee whiz, if it wasn t ideal, there probably wouldn t be humans here Gee whiz That s all you have to say about this heavenly glory I ve captured in my notes Yep The format is awkward when trying to shelve with other books It reinforced my belief that we d be better off with a lunar calendar I hope that was the author s drift, but I doubt it

    What an amazing way to see an such beautiful dance in the sky of our Moon.I ve learn a lot on the repeating process of the alignment between Earth, Moon and Sun, from something logical like predicting the rise of the Moon according to its current phase, to the understanding of very old, yet so precise, Moon eclipses calendar and 18 years repeat cycles, or the 13 months based anti clockwise calendar you can do on your own, representing the Moon and Sun alignment.As Robin Heath says, you ll nev What an amazing way to see an such beautiful dance in the sky of our Moon.I ve learn a lot on the repeating process of the alignment between Earth, Moon and Sun, from something logical like predicting the rise of the Moon according to its current phase, to the understanding of very old, yet so precise, Moon eclipses calendar and 18 years repeat cycles, or the 13 months based anti clockwise calendar you can do on your own, representing the Moon and Sun alignment.As Robin Heath says, you ll never see our Moon the same way

    A load of new age crap enveloped in nice design.According to author, science today has lost the knowledge of the ancients, yet we somehow fling satellites around every planet, add leap seconds according to atomic clocks, and have precision of femtoseconds 10 15 in researchGenerally a waste of time unless you re new ager or conspiracy theorist.

  10. Jason Jason says:

    Honestly, this book should be required reading in schools It gives a very concise overview of a hugely important topic that is almost completely absent from the education system and it can be read in 30 minutes Essential We all know what time it is, but we have forgotten why it is what time it is.
