Bad Astronomy

By Philip Plait

By now a classic among astronomy books, Bad Astronomy clears up astronomical misconceptions and debunks myths with tongue firmly in cheek. From the Coriolis effect, and what it does (or doesn't do) to toilet water, to Earth's blue skies and seasons, to the Moon-landing hoax and UFOs, Philip Plait provides a humorous take on a wide variety of topics even as he approaches sensitive subjects with care. Plait's sassiness lends the chapters an entertaining quality, so you might not even realize that you're learning something regardless of how much or how little you may know about astronomy.
