TYB Books -- Astronomy Books Page 2 (A-M)

TYB Books -- Main Page

Page 1 of my general astronomy books, contains only the University of Arizona Space Science Series.  They cover most of the astronomical world in great detail, and it is my desire to eventually have them all. But they do not yet cover everything.  My next two pages of astronomy books will cover books outside that series and will cover all aspects astronomical study: Cosmological, Planetary, Galactic, Stellar, Amateur and More.  Because of the great number of books, I have divided my list into two pages.  Page 2 will be books arranged alphabetically by title from A to M, and Page 3, will be from N-Z.  As I have mentioned elsewhere, some of these books can be extremely expensive and extremely technical, though surely not all.  The titles will generally give away what is what.  Don't understand the title?  You probably won't understand the book.  If the book is more than $100.00, that's another good clue.  Good books for beginners might be the general astronomy textbooks, and like most textbooks, they aren't cheap, but they can be decent references.  As time goes on, I will probably try to rearrange these titles by subject, but in the meantime, there is no real organization.  If you find too many of these books out of your price range, please check out my Affordable Astronomy page for books all under $30.00 and many much less, or if you are more into the History of Astronomy, I have a page for that, too.  As always, if there is something you'd like to see here that isn't here yet, please let me know, so I can add it.  Also, please check out my Software page for some books on using your computer to do astronomy, and other astronomy software. Enjoy!
