If you're passionate about astronomy and things scientific this is obviously a book not to miss; however, even if you're not particularly interested in science you'll likely enjoy browsing this expansive excerpt which will take you on a whistle-stop tour of modern astronomers and their very big toys, including VLTs (very large telescopes), ELTs (extra-large telescopes with aperture of about 8 meters in diameter) and OWLs (overwhelmingly large telescopes) which could potentially have apertures of 130 meters in diameter!
