A very enjoyable read of a fascinating world., 27 Sep 1999
Patrick Moore takes you through the fascinating history of the discovery of Mars, leaving you wondering what secrets the planet has yet to reveal? The book does not dwell on the Astronomer but more on the discoveries made and the impact it had on our understanding of the Red Planet at the time. Patrick shows a world that is diverse as it is mysterious. This book reads more like an after dinner chat with Patrick than a scientific text book with lists of numbers and statistics.
