Book reference required

  1. Dec 12, 2006 #1

    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.

    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.
