I could wax lyrical about this excellent study of the Solar System - alas - this is a beautifully written book and should be of interest to the expert and amateur astronomer alike, and also to the layman.
Dava Sobel is clearly an expert in her field with a life-lomg passion for her subject and an inate ability to express complicated scientific ideas, thoughts and concepts related to astronomy, cosmology and in this, to our Solar System.
This work of art is particularly useful for those needing to rekindle their own former passion in the subject.
