THE SUPERNOVA STORY (1994)
Published by the Princeton Science Library, Princeton University
Press, 41 William Street, Princeton, NJ 08540A good read, a good reference,
and a good book for introductory astronomy classes.
From the reviews:
- "Marschall's supernova book is a superb piece of writing; it reads
almost as easily as a good novel"--Nature
- "This is a wonderful book about science, about astronomy, and of
course, about supernovae"-- American Journal of Physics
- "the book provides much more than the story of a single supernova,
adding an overview of the history of astronomy and good insights into how
astronomers work today. Solid, authoritative stuff, comfortably intelligible
to the interested but uninitiated reader...An excellent book from an
enthusiast who knows his subject and conveys his enthusiasm engagingly."--
