Book reference required

  1. Dec 12, 2006 #1
    Hi,

    Is there any book that can be read as an alternative to the 'Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Sun'? I have not been able to buy the above but wanted to know if there are any other books that might have the same information.

    Thanks

    Nitya

    Well, try reading "Nearest Star: The Surprising Science of Our Sun." It's a very simple straight-forward book. It also has some history of the sun as well (ex: recent sunspots, records of solar flares, etc). If you wanna probe a little deeper, you could try "Journey from the Center of the Sun" that gives you a layer by layer description of what the sun is theoritically composed of.

    Hope they help... :)

    Thanks for replying. I brought the Cambridge book itself. Got it thru an online book store.
