Mitton, Simon; Davies, Paul (foreword).
ABC Books Sydney 2005
Paperback thick octavo, very good condition, black & white photos, small crease top edge front cover, minor edgewear. 369 pp. This biography is about Sir Fred Hoyle who was the first English astronomer to publicise his subject through the media of radio and television, which in the 1950s made him a major public figure.

The author has written a major scientific biography of one of the greatest, and best-known, scientists of the 20th century, which will appeal to all readers.
