This was my first Astronomy book. It covers almost everything a beginner should know. Though I was not a native English speaker, the language was so simple that I could understand everything the author wanted to convey. This book contains clear charts description of all major meteor shower as well. This book was so interesting that it inspired me to become an amateur astronomer later on. A must read for any kid/adult who wants to be fascinated by night sky.
