I'm very very impressed. Some concepts are quite complex and he has explained with extraordinary ease. Immediately made me buy Part II.

Boy, did I learn a lot from this one! Professor Kaler tends to rush through some of the details from time to time but, overall, this was a primer on astronomy that will get me looking to the skies more frequently and with a lot more comprehension of what's up there. Excellent for wanna-be stargazers and parents of inquiring kids. Do you know why the moon comes up at different times of day? Why one side of the moon always faces us? Why Pluto is considered a planet by some and not others? You will know all these and much, much more after listening..

Professor Kaler is a great lecturer in the way he conveyes knowledge, simple, factual, and interesting, it keeps you eager to listen and research further into the diverse fields of knowledge he explains in his book. The supplementary reference manual is well made too.

very good series of lectures. I am studying a degree with the Open University. currently on my 2nd year, and while it was 'slightly ' over simplistic is some regards, it was still incredibly useful as a revision aid, as it allowed me to review and study while I was doing things that normally wouldn't allow me to study (driving, walking etc).
the lectures are clear, well presented and are set in a logical context...
