5/5 Stars The Fate of Stars! Reviewed by: Erica on 11/6/14

I bought this book a few years ago for Dr. Wheeler's class, but it has become one of my favorite books on astronomy. "Cosmic Catastrophes" has clear explanations of astronomical topics for people who have an interest in astronomy, but do not have a mathematical background. This book also includes many illustrations for concepts that are difficult to explain in prose. Overall, this is an excellent book for astronomy enthusiasts.
