What is unique about Richard Norton's book is that it is both a field guide to observing meteors, and also a field guide to locating, preparing and analysing meteorites. In addition to giving the reader information about observing techniques for meteors, this book also provides a fully detailed account of the types of meteorites, how and where to find them, how to prepare and analyse them. The book provides everything the amateur astronomer (or geologist!) needs to know about meteors and meteorites. It is thus the only complete book on the subject available at present.

the end is near Surviving the apocalypse is one thing. Enjoying life after most of civilization is wiped out -- that's entirely different. Maybe you can outrun an avalanche, or escape a burning building, but can you really cut it after the unthinkable happens? Can you, for example, deal with damn dirty apes, convert your car to run on bathtub gin, or synthesize a species-saving vaccine from your own mucus? No? Obviously, it's not going to be as easy as you thought to come out of Armageddon as the new ruling king of the world. Any chump off the street could be lucky enough to have the immunity to survive the all-of-humanity-killing disease, or be the one dude who happens to make it through a meteor strike. But not everyone will know what clothes to wear to intimidate, or what kind of vehicle you want to be driving in the postapocalyptic wasteland. Not everyone will have the sense to discern whether their food is, in fact, people. You can survive the apocalypse without this book. But the apocalypse isn't the problem: It's what happens afterward. You against the other people left in the world. You'd better be prepared.

Many field guides and popular books on amateur astronomy have been written, but few are devoted entirely to the rich skies of the southern hemisphere. This book draws on the knowledge of a galaxy of South African experts to offer stargazers some unique insights into the night skies in their half of the world. An introduction addresses the question: 'If I want to make a hobby of astronomy, how do I go about it?' A practical chapter is devoted to how to choose an instrument -- from binoculars to telescopes -- with which to view the moon, the planets and the stars. Comets, meteors (methods of observing and times) and meteorites are the subject of one chapter; the myths -- classical and ethnic -- relating to southern hemisphere stars and constellations are detailed in another. Color charts which will assist in the recognition of the constellations and their principal stars are extensively illustrated with superb graphics by Frank Flowers, a former lecturer at the Planetarium at the University of the Witwatersrand, making this book a must for all budding amateur astronomers and an interesting addition to the shelves of the experts.
