Abstract

There are several books about total solar eclipses, and most focus on the science and technical aspects of such events. Many comment briefly on the experience of totality, and even focus a chapter or two on this. Notable amongst books is Totality: Eclipses of the Sun by eclipse chasers Mark Littmann, Fred Espenak, and the late Ken Willcox. In this book, anecdotal accounts are used to highlight the wonder of the eclipse experience to good effect, helping to communicate just how majestic and awe-inspiring the total eclipse is.
