5.0 out of 5 stars didactically brilliant, very accessible yet conveys a ton of information. 18 July 2014
By German Reader - Published on Amazon.com
This book is didactically brilliant. I love the numerous illustrations and how the structure of each chapter (overview, explanation of how knowledge is derived about this fact through reasoning, then a small challenge to expand on the reasoning) helps make sure I really understood the content. The specific facts covered are also great - for example, the part about the history of water on Mars was insightful, and I hadn't previously known about the conductive vs. radiative heat flows at different depths in the sun.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love Amazon Student. Doesn't get any easier. 13 Mar 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I rented this book used. And I have to say from my previous experience with Amazon Student, I'm a bit disappointed with the amount of highlighting and writing that's in the book. It's distracting. But the books in a good condition and it was delivered without any issue. I needed it ASAP so I am happy to have had it on time.
5.0 out of 5 stars great for class 3 Oct 2014

Well written book, great for class. Some text is hard to read because it's overlaid on colors that mask the text. Other than that, fairly good book.
