This review is from: Planets: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
I thought I knew a lot about the solar system and planets in general but it turns out I'd barely scratched the surface and I was hanging onto many scientific assumptions that have been debunked or revised in the past ten years. The chapter on Exoplanets and the debate about Pluto's status are particular highlights, did you know the largest planet astronomers have thus far discovered is ten times the size of Jupiter? Filled with amazing facts such as these.
