David Todd's book, Astronomy: The Science of the Heavenly Bodies, is a comprehensive and informative guide to the world of astronomy. This book covers everything from the history of astronomy to modern advancements in the field.

One of the highlights of this book is Todd's enthusiasm for the subject matter, which shines through in his writing. His passion for astronomy is contagious, and readers will find themselves just as excited to learn about the stars and planets as he is.

Book Description:
The progress of astronomy from age to age has been far from uniform—rather by leaps and bounds: from the earliest epoch when man's planet earth was the center about which the stupendous cosmos wheeled, for whom it was created, and for whose edification it was maintained—down to the modern age whose discoveries have ascertained that even our stellar universe, the vast region of the solar domain, is but one of the thousands of island universes that tenant the inconceivable immensities of space. So rapid, indeed, has been the progress of astronomy in very recent years that the present is especially favorable for setting forth its salient features; and this book is an attempt to present the wide range of astronomy in readable fashion, as if a story with a definite plot, from its origin with the shepherds of ancient Chaldea down to present-day ascertainment of the actual scale of the universe, and definite measures of the huge volume of supersolar giants among the stars. - Summary by David Todd
