Top ten approachable astronomy books

Stuart Clark is the acclaimed author of The Sun Kings and one of the UK's most widely read astronomy journalists. His new book is The Big Questions: The Universe.

For the Guardian he named his top ten approachable astronomy books.

One title on the list:
The Edge of Physics by Anil Ananthaswamy

Part science, part travel book. Ananthaswamy searches for cosmological truth by visiting the often remote observatories and laboratories studying the universe. Ultimately, this story is an enchanting exploration of the author's quest to understand not just a little more about the universe, but a little more about his own place within it.
