This review is from: A Traveller's Guide to Mars: The Mysterious Landscapes of the Red Planet (Paperback)
This might be the best book about Mars at present. Hartmann tells us all that was known before the Spirit and Opportunity rovers landed on the planet. And he tells us how we know this, by refering to a lot of observations and detailed pictures, explaining how they support some theories and reject others. By describing different parts of the planet, beautifully illustrated by highly interesting pictures, he shows how they tell tales of different eras and events in the planets changing history. We have to wait until the journey of the two rovers has come to and end, and the results of their missions have been thoroughly investigated, before we might have a book that can match this one. In the meantime this is the book that makes it a lot more fun to follow the discoveries of the rovers, and to understand their significance.
