(Let us hope Moore had a good agent.) Eschewing the token passages on astrology, myths and legends that mar the more try-hard guides, Moore still somehow brings a real sense of occasion and wonder to his strictly scientific account of eclipses and related phenomena.

Its a sleight-of-hand readers of his excellent recent Patrick Moore on Mars will be familiar with. The black-and-white photographic plates are handsome, the maps--reduced to near illegibility--are not. Every guide warns of the risks of eye damage associated with observing the sun, but Moores advice is more cogent and constructive than most. --Simon Ings
