This is one son's survival of a harrowing childhood in which his mother, unhindered by any intervention, besieged her oldest child with imprisonment, starvation & torture. This is the third in David J. Pelzer's memoirs yet is complete unto itself.

Skywatching (Nature Company Guides) von David H. Levy
I'm glad to see so many recommendations - astronomy is alive & well, in part because of David H. Levy. When I can see the night sky, I drag out my copy of David H.

Skywatching is more than that though, it is a lavish reference source & a companion guide for embarking upon that grand discovery of the roof to our world.
