This was my first audiobook choice, and I really enjoyed it. It proved to be a catalyst for my own forays into stargazing, and that alone makes it a very good choice.
The book ranges from interesting biographies, to history of discoveries, to a general primer on observational astronomy. The narration might have been better done by a professional, rather than by Ferris himself. But the fact that he is an astronomer gives his story telling a certain intimacy that someone reading a script might not have.
I will definitely be listening to this one again.
