Cosmic Clouds 3-D will take you on a mesmerising journey to a place that no other books have ventured. Astronomy writer David Eicher skilfully narrates the story of the birth, death and recycling of stars in nebulae and the formation of the elements that made everything we know.

Eicher’s text is supported by Finnish artist and astronomer J-P Metsävainio’s explosive visuals of these clouds of dust and gas spanning unimaginable distances, brought to life in cutting edge 3-D for the first time in the history of astronomy.

Excellent introduction to the universe

Note that I have only had time to read the beginning; the timeframe for reviewing seems to be limited and doesn't take into account the time required for delivery (in my case, over two weeks).

The non-3-D images are fantastic and the 3-D images absolutely astonishing. I found it very easy to get the 3-D effect with the OWL, even with glasses on (the trick is holding both the OWL and the book close enough). What, for me, lets the book down a bit is the text. I find it slightly boring since there isn't really anything new. I would've liked to see (no pun intended) more 3-D images included; I realise each must take an age to process, but they are what this book is about, aren't they? The text and non-3-D images may appear a bit like fillers to take up space (another unintended pun, sorry!). On the other hand, the book is clearly meant as an entry-level introduction to the universe for someone who isn't familiar with the topic yet, and as such I'm sure it'll work very well. The non-3-D images also have their place, since the 3-D images have their technical limitations and can't be huge. A book like this certainly needs big, full-page images. This is a completely new concept for me and I'm definitely happy that I got this book.
