"Manga Guide to the Universe is extremely easy to read, even if you’re not a science or space guru, and is recommended reading for anyone looking to learn. I think it's best suited for an adult to try and teach a child about space, because the manga and diagrams help spell things out even better."
--Michael Hatamoto, AlamedaTech
