For one-semester Introduction to Astronomy courses.

With Astronomy: A Beginner’s Guide, Seventh Edition, the briefer version of their two seminal textbooks, trusted authors Eric Chaisson and Steve McMillan continue to emphasize three major themes: the process of science, the size and scale of the universe, and the evolution of the universe. The Seventh Edition introduces three additional core features: learning outcomes, collaborative and individual activities, and scientific history and culture. Known for its stunning art program, A Beginner’s Guide now also provides revised visual analogies that help students connect cosmic concepts to their daily lives.
