4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By H. A. Weedon TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a succinct, well written and very readable work with the illustrations tied in with the text in a rewardingly eminent fashion. Waffle is mercifully absent as the authors stick to the point line after line, presenting their case in factual fashion devoid of fanciful speculations. This book is a masterpiece in how to present science and technology in accessible form for the general reader.

Whilst the reader may not become as convinced as the authors of the existence of extraterrestrial life in our solar system, the authors certainly do succeed in showing that such life may very well exist on the balance of probabilities. The reader is taken carefully step by step through the established facts in such an adept fashion that it actually seems sometimes that one is there on the planet or moon looking round at what is being described. Except, that is, on Venus, a victim of extreme global warming, which may, nevertheless, harbour microscopic organisms in a layer of its dense atmosphere.

The work is produced using a sensible size print larger than the tiny print used in so many books these days, something that epitomises everything else that's so good about this erudite, but nevertheless entertaining, masterpiece of well presented facts concisely presented without any irritating digressions. The writing style fixes facts in the mind facilitating rapid recall when needed. Well done!

There was a time when it was thought that life, in the Solar system, was limited to our Earth. Now human-lauched probes have kindled new hopes to find at least microbial life on Mars and maybe more than microbial life on Titan, and maybe some of the gas giant's moons (such as Europa, Enceladus, Triton) have an underground ocean that supports life. Those new findings are examined and evaluated along with their implications for life existing beyond the solar system. A fascinating, learned book!

What if we have already found extraterrestrial life? 17 Mar. 2010
By Ventura Angelo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This wonderful book gives you the state of the art in the search of extraterrestrial life in our solar system. From the controversial findings in martian meteorites, to the promising environment of Saturn's moon Titan, we learn that extraterrestrial life is possible on a variety of abodes. we have only to go and try to find them. And what this entails about the possibilities of life outside the Solar System? in the final chapters the Authors give some interesting speculations on this topic.
A book to read, highly recommended!

A groundbreaking gem 17 Mar. 2010
By Alberto G. Fairen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is written incredibly well. I'm amazed at how Dirk can speak to a specialist and to the general public. The book is very cleverly written with just the right mix of hard science and fascinating and delightfully enjoyable reading. Dirk offers a plethora of information about the current state of the astrobiological quest, coming through with the scientific details but making them accessible to non-specialists. And this is so because Dirk is a top planetary scientist who also happens to be a gifted writer and communicator. Also, this is the very first book dealing with the issue of life in the Universe that seriously considers the possibility that we have already found life in other planets, and this awesome conclusion is based on a solid revisit of the scientific evidence gathered during the last decades of spatial exploration. I highly recommend this book to any person that is interested in the planetary exploration and the search for life elsewhere. This is an excellent book in every way imaginable.

Interesting Book 30 Oct. 2010
By Roger H. Kreil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are interested in the possibility of life beyond Earth, I recommend that you read this book. I am only half way through it. But it is exciting to know that there is strong evidence out there that suggests that there is life on other planets.

Ok but? 30 May 2010
By David Bingham-trustee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is OK but not in the same class as Paul Davies' new book "The Erie Silence".
