A nice reference, well organized and thorough. This is interesting to browse and handy when some topic comes up - we were watching a Science Channel documentary that mentioned the Kuiper Belt, wanted to know more detail than the show provided, so out came this book and there it was. Plenty of good illustrations, a good index, and appendices listing further reading and useful Web sites. This will be helpful for explaining things to our grandkids when they get a couple of years older, too.
Great refernce for all the planets and other features of our solar system.Tonnes of inforamtion for anybody interested in the planets and our solar system. There is quite a lot of inforamtion but for those who are really interested and looking for an up to date book about the planets to satify their hunger for knowledge on the solar system then I reccomend this book for you.
