    1. We see often enough T-shirts, posters or post cards of the Milky Way with the exclamatory dot, "You are here!", indicating the relative insignificance of humans in the cosmos. Our life, on Earth, in our solar system, exists within a vast sea of other solar systems. The Bennett text puts this picture, itself, in perspective. Our Milky Way galaxy is part of a local group of galaxies that, in turn, is part of a super cluster of galaxies, in a "known universe" among many, many such super clusters. F [...]


    2. Reader Interest before this course 0. After 8. This book was a pretty good textbook. Good pictures and help for the non science major studying Astronomy.


    3. The Essential Cosmic Perspective gives an excellent conceptual overview of astronomy at an introductory level. I'd recommend it for astronomy 101 or similar or for enthusiasts looking for a well written survey of modern astronomy. I use it for my classes.


    4. I used this textbook for my Astronomy class, I enjoyed the beautiful images and relatively easy to understand language. A great beginner's guide to the field of astronomy for someone who might be interested.


    5. Absolutely phenomenal book. Super interesting and is a textbook I would actually read in my own time, instead of only for class.



    6. Not bad for a textbook. I do not agree with many parts of the book but it was not as hard to read as many textbooks are. Very good pictures and illustrations throughout.
