Hi im Ash, im 40 from north wales. I'm disabled and use a wheelchair. I like astronomy and i have a book called Teach yourself Astronomy, it's by Patrick moore. I like learning things, but i feel im not learning anything from the book as there is too much information. I feel very frustrated. The book doesn't give straightforward facts. What can i do to feel good, like i know stuff?

Some years ago, as an adult, I tried to master the identification of wild flowers. The standard identification guides contained so much information that I was getting nowwhere so I bought a children's book on the subject and that cracked it! No doubt that would work for any subject. Alternatively one could master just a small part of the subject, say the solar system or constellations. There are also a number of bite-size books, one on astronomy, and other small books with one item per page. As you do use the computer, check out the various possibilities there. Of course what one considers to be "the basic facts" is difficult to decide. Regards maf.
