This is the eclipse book for someone who prefers detail and research to storytelling. Dvorak starts each chapter with a specific look into the eclipse, but is able to expand that one chapter to include history, folklore, and science. While looking up at the skies can seem like a very personal experience, Dvorak's writing tells us that people have always been looking at the skies. While our reasons may be different, we're all still looking up.
