From the reviews:

“A well balanced, expert and practical book with which to arm oneself before setting about the Caldwell Objects, which will appeal to amateur astronomers at all levels of experience. In his usual style the author introduces some humour into the text … . I recommend you buy The Caldwell Objects and how to observe them.” (Gordon Rogers, Journal of the British Astronomical Association, Vol. 120 (1), 2010)

“If you’re tired of the same old Messier objects and want to see something that doesn’t have an ‘M’ number, The Caldwell Objects And How To Observe them is definitely for you. Its detailed information tells you how best to observe the 109 deep-sky objects … . Mobberley’s book … has all the depth and usefulness you need. Overall … this is a very practical and highly recommended book.” (Paul Money, Sky at Night Magazine, March, 2010)

“Book, as expected, is primarily concerned with the description and details of the Caldwell objects and these are covered to the depth suitable for an amateur astronomer. … It sets out to be a reference book … . author’s personality and humour does come through in his writing, making the book an easv and enjoyable read … . charts do provide the reader with the general location in the sky and for this they are useful. … I would happily add it to my collection.” (Simon Dawes, The Observatory, Vol. 130, August, 2010)
