(He is pictured here with the model Sun.) In addition to this astronomy textbook, he has written college-level textbooks in astrobiology, mathematics, and statistics- two books for the general public, On the Cosmic Horizon (Pearson Addison-Wesley, 2001) and Beyond UFOs (Princeton University Press, 2008)- and an award-winning series of children's books that includes Max Goes to the Moon, Max Goes toMars, Max Goes to Jupiter (coming soon), and Max's Ice Age Adventure.
