    One thought on “National Geographic Picture Atlas of Our Universe”

    1. If the amount of time spent reading and rereading a book counted toward "greatest book of all-time", then "Our Universe" would be THE GREATEST BOOK OF ALL-TIME!!!!!!!!!!! I spent untold hours as a child growing up poring over this book. My old copy has disappeared into the unknown, and I really need to get myself another copy. I miss it.

    2. This is the best coffee table book ever made. I really don't care if it's way out of day now. The pictures are awesome, and the information is fascinating (though very out of date). I used to borrow this book every week from the public library when I was younger. Then, someone in my family was wonderful enough to find it for me many years later. Love this book!

    3. Oooh, I loved this book. It was a childhood Christmas present. At that time, the content was above me, but I loved the illustrations. I have to thank Christopher Long, whoever he is, for reminding me of Our Universe. See dvdtown/reviews/univer.

    4. I repeatedly checked this book out in elementary school and read it cover to cover every time. I enjoyed the connections between mythology and celestial objects as well as the gorgeous pictures (hypothetical aliens, anyone?). The information is outdated, but I recently purchased a copy because it is a large part of what got me into science, astronomy specifically.Love it to death.

    5. "Lavishly illustrated" doesn't even cover it. This book is a masterpiece and will encourage anyone of the wonders of space. Truly phenomenal.

    6. I discovered this book in a dilapidated library in Montgomery, AL working on a report or a science project in the third grade. I don't think it had much to do with what I was working on, but it became my favorite book in the library until I found the Magic School Bus books. This book has a ton of cool pictures of the planets, and for whatever reason, I was drawn to the section at the beginning of the planet bios that included information about the gods they were named after. I had a strange fasc [...]

    7. I read this from cover to cover after I received this as a Christmas present from my parents back in 1981.It was one of the only things I asked for that year. I was very much into space and the planets even at a fairly young age.I own a first edition copyright 1980 hardcover copy of this book.I was able to fish it out of a box at my parents' place back a few years ago. I still leaf through it now and then.

    8. This book makes me nostalgia so hard. I poured over these pages for hours on end in my grade school years. I'm finally picking up a cheap used copy so I can share it with my kids. I expect I'll clear up some out-of-date inaccuracies here and there, but the illustrations are so fantastic it'll be worth it.

    9. I've spoken with at least three of my friends about this book after I picked up a copy for my coffee table. They were captivated as children, just as I was. They remember ALL the wild alien artwork, the gods and goddesses, the vivid details. How many other kids were shaped by this book? Who else drew a massive sense of wonder from it?You?

    10. This was one of my formative childhood books, but sadly I must give it a fairly low rating now because science has passed it by - much has been discovered in the decades since it was first published. If you want to give a kid a book about space pick something more up to date.

    11. My first book of science that obviously turned me on to the subject. After preparing 10 years of science and technology courses, I find it to be a hallmark in creating the perfect visual to "explore" our undiscovered domain.

    12. This had to be my favorite book when I was a kid. I borrowed it from the library almost every week. Some of the science is a bit dated, but it fueled the flame of my passion for space and the universe.

    13. This book made me into the sci-fi fan I am today. Not Star Trek, not Star Wars, this book. It's nearly 40 years old but it hasn't been surpassed in terms of its brilliance. It combines real astronomy with the speculative in a way I've never seen before or since.

    14. Exquisite beautiful book. I would take trips to the library when I was a little bookreeper just to browse through this book for what seemed like hours.

    15. For its time this was an accurate atlas of known space, and its superb illustration makes it a great addition to any writer or artists library.

    16. I had this book when I was a kid. I loved this book. It was a constant book I'd turn to for several years of my childhood.

    17. I was in love with this book as a kid. I think I checked it out of the library every other week. One of my childhood favorites. Just an amazing book for kids.
