Yes, but is this a 'good' book? In this case Steve Gillion was obviously wanting an introductory style of book that gives a working understanding of Lunars. Is Chauvenet such a book? I would argue no. I don't think anyone could describe Chauvenet as 'introductory'.
I would have to agree with Frank here.
