Review by: James Jaques on July 22, 2012 :
Technically accurate and a good addition to knowledge of the recent transit. I did not find the document littered with typos but indeed in need of a proof read. tance, something is missing in this sentence: "Kepler was in Wurtemberg Germany in 1571 to an innkeeper’s daughter and a soldier of fortune he never knew."
(reviewed long after purchase)

Nice addition to the transit literature. Short, but an excellent read. My only complaint is that is should have been more carefully proofread - it is littered with typos.
