I've had a long standing, amateur, interest in astronomy ever since school. I watch science documentaries on the BBC (still the best) and while I don't read text books (I'm not that masochistic!) I do read popular physics books, I even read A Brief History of Time.

However, I've found that many of them go over the same ground as all the others and don't tell me anything new. That's one reason I'm here.
