From the reviews:

“An informative and easy to follow discussion about the life of stars sets the scene for the formation of star clusters themselves. This pocket guide then delivers a set of descriptions, images and charts for each of the 50 clusters covered. The charts are uncluttered and useful, and the descriptions interesting … . ideal for a beginner … .” (Steve Richards, Sky at Night Magazine, April, 2011)

“This book is an amateur’s guide to observing star clusters; it tells you where they are with a picture of the cluster and a finding chart and suggestions for what instrument to use. … It’s a nice little book that makes finding clusters easy and tells you about what you’re looking at, so it’s interesting for anybody with a telescope; and possibly very useful for teachers as it shows where to find clusters to illustrate various basic astronomy topics … .” (Simon Goodwin, The Observatory, Vol. 132 (1226), February, 2012)
