Review

'Meteorites and Their Parent Planets provides an engrossing overview of a highly interdisciplinary field - the study of extraterrestrial materials. The second edition of this successful book has been thoroughly revised, and describes the nature of meteorites, where they come from, and how they get to Earth … Harry McSween's writing is accessible to scientists and non-scientists alike … This book gives the reader a clear understanding of the fundamentals of a complex subject. The softback is good value and the book should be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the origin and evolution of the Solar System.' R. L. S. Taylor, Spaceflight

'Harry McSween's writing is accessible to scientists and non-scientists alike … the book should be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the origin and evolution of the Solar System.' R. L. S. Taylor, Spaceflight

' … an excellent intorduction to meteoritics for those Earth Scientists who have an interest in but not a specialist knowledge of the subject.' Allan Pring, Geological Magazine

' … a very interesting read and is a welcome addition to my bookshelf … generally the text is explanatory and written so that someone with a general interest can follow it quite easily. On the other hand, there seems to be sufficient technical backup to make the book a useful reference tool for those a little more experienced in the subject … All in all a very good interesting book, particularly for pure geologists. It would, I think be of general interest to all Geoscientists.' Geoscientist

'The first edition provided one of the initial sparks to my interest in meteorites, and this new book is no less inspiring. This book is up to date, broad in focus, and confidently written by an author with a deep understanding of his subject. It is a must for the bookshelf of every planetary scientist, as well as being of interest to students and scientists from other disciplines. The easy writing style would also make it an enjoyable read for an interested amateur or bright teenager.' Sara Russell, The Observatory
