Cons:

Some aspects of the book are considered as “back dated”. Some major changes have taken place in recent times, like Pluto is no more considered as a planet of solar system. The book is very narrative regarding viewable astronomical bodies and systems in northern hemisphere. There are some prominent stars and systems in southern hemisphere, which should have been added in the book. The author has also introduced the concept of extraterrestrial lives in a portion of the book, which is found to be irrelevant in the deviation from the main purpose of the book. Interpretation of big bang theory is also needless as far as astronomical guidance is considered.
