From the reviews:

“This guide is entirely devoted to deep sky observing with binoculars or a small telescope from the northern hemisphere. … As a former teacher, I am always interested to see how authors explain quite difficult concepts in a simple and concise way and this author has certainly passed my test. … I consider this book would be helpful to amateurs beginning their observational interest in the deep sky … .” (Geoffrey Johnstone, Journal of the British Astronomical Association, Vol. 122 (1), 2012)

“The purpose of the book is to introduce the beginner to objects in the Northern night sky by using binoculars and small telescopes up to 4-inches aperture. … The book ends with a good glossary, a complete index, and references to useful internet sites, together with a selection of books and software. This is a fine book which, if followed through the astronomical year, would well teach the budding astronomer the arts and crafts of proper observing and a secure knowledge of the night sky.” (Richard H. Chambers, The Observatory, Vol. 132 (1228), June, 2012)
