A textbook that is not written like a textbook.

Astronomy: At Play in the Cosmos brings popular science writing to a textbook. In every chapter, author Adam Frank―a co-writer of the NPR blog “13.7 Cosmos and Culture”―integrates two interviews with leading scientists, a fascinating second voice that drives the narrative while making astronomy feel immediate, relevant, and real for students, and still capturing science’s human nature.
