Andrew May got his first degree in Natural Sciences at Cambridge University (1979), then went on to gain a Ph.D. in astrophysics from Manchester University. He did 4 years postdoctoral research at the universities of Groningen (NL) and Oxford. After a few years working for various software companies, he joined the Civil Service in 1991, and spent the next 20 years doing defense-related scientific research. Since 2011, Andrew has done some part-time consultancy in the same field, as well as freelance writing. His books published to date include Bloody British History: Somerset (History Press, 2012), Conspiracy History (Bretwalda Books, 2014), Pocket Giants: Isaac Newton (History Press, 2015), Pocket Giants: Albert Einstein (History Press, 2016) and Pseudoscience and Science Fiction (Springer, 2016).

"In the 1960s, Apollo astronauts were able to visit the Moon in
person. Now readers can do the next best thing with this well
illustrated and highly readable book about our nearest neighbor.
... The work should also find a home in the private library of any
individual curious to learn more about the Moon. Summing Up: Highly
recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and general readers."
(C. G. Wood, Choice, Vol. 55 (8), April, 2018)
"For those who are telescopically inclined, May takes us through choosing a telescope, photographic options ... and a various tours of aspects of the Moon's surface, from the great craters to sites of Apollo landings. ... for anyone beginning to explore the Moon with anything from binoculars to a heavy duty garden telescope, this is a brilliant introduction and guide."
