Secrets of the Moon is an enthusiastic science book that is filled with interesting information about the moon and how it impacts life on Earth. ... Secrets of the Moon boasts a wealth of knowledge about Earth’s heavenly neighbor and human efforts to understand it. ... Osiow is an effective evangelist for the Moon, positioning it as no mere minor planetary body, but a place that is special and that should be treasured more than it already is.
I found The Secrets of the Moon to be a fascinating book filled with the many attributes of the moon. I enjoyed how Andrew Osiow integrated so much information about the moon into related categories by separating the book into four parts representing the seasons. I enjoyed reading familiar facts about the moon, while also learning new facts like the origin of the phrase blue moon, and how a solar eclipse effected the outcome of a war not once but twice! There was so many interesting facts about the moon, I found myself completely engrossed in the book and couldn’t put it down!
...This will appeal to those intrigued by the legends, superstitions, and effects linked to the moon as Andrew Osiow explores two major narratives - looking at the moon in terms of our survival and viewing it as a multifaceted cornerstone. The contents are organized by month with each section exploring various themes and incorporating legends. Woven throughout are facts about the moon such as that it wobbles, that Russia beat the U.S. to it, that a harvest moon can last for days, and that there are seas on the moon.I personally never knew much about the truth behind the moon and how it influences our daily lives. Osiow perfectly integrates interesting and multifaceted facts with the truth behind the moon and additional astrology/astronomy books. Highly recommend this read for individuals interested in our moon and its history/nature. ...
