A delightful insight on Kepler's laws of planetary orbits!

I found this text one Saturday afternoon while shopping at a university bookstore in Denver. I am a candidate for the M.S. degree in astronomyand physics and doing my thesis on Johannes Kepler and his three laws of planetary motion. While browsing through the physics section, I saw this text right in front of me. I spent the next half-hour thumbing through the pages. I purchased it, and I'm using it for part of my thesis. I also am part-time faculty at a unversity in the Denver area. I have shared this wonderful text with students and other faculty members. There are full explanations of orbits, detailed drawings, equations, and sample problems. Orbits include those of planets, moons, man-made satellites, asteroids and comets. I find it an enjoyable book for all that are interested in astronmony from the junior high student through a professional in the field.
