'This really is a magnificent book, a joy to simply thumb through and a pleasure to read. The more than 200 full color photographs in this large format volume (36 x 25 cm), taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and some of the world's largest terrestrial telescopes, are guaranteed to fill any reader with awe and wonder.' Science Books and Films 'Undoubtedly, this book of celestial imagery is one of the best ever produced if you wish to show your dinner guests what astronomers are getting so excited about ... The author's text is concise, very informative, simple and fascinating. This is a book of pictures, probably drawn from all the best produced by the major observatories as well as the Hubble Space Telescope. If one has seen some of them before, this new excitingly large format will bring back those first impressions. Majestic Universe is ridiculously cheap, and it should be on everyone's library shelf.' A. D. Andrews, Irish Astronomical Journal ' ... while Brunier is a masterful writer, 'Majestic Universe' is first and foremost a book of stunningly beautiful astronomical photographs ... Brunier leads the reader through the vast universe of stars, galaxies, black holes and the enigmas that puzzle today's cosmologists. The photographs, in full color, are magnificent - and take us out to the edges of the known universe, across billions of years of time and billions of lightyears of distance. More than a coffee table book, 'Majestic Universe' is the perfect holiday gift.' Naples News 'The Helix nebula in the constellation of Aquarius is, at 450 light-years away, the closest planetary nebula to Earth. Shown above is its central star, a very hot white dwarf. Pictures of this and many other images obtained using the world's largest telescopes, including the Hubble Space Telescope, are to be found in Majestic Universe. The book charts the latest advances in cosmology, and the way in which the spatial and temporal limits of the cosmos have, in the past decade, been pushed back virtually as far as the Big Bang.' Nature '... the quantity, size and quality of the illustrations, not to mention their topicality, are just stunning. This is a valuable addition to any library.' Richard Knox, GNOMON
