Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed reading this book, and it's shedding light on the meteorites I've bought (and the ones I now plan to buy), and there are lots of pictures to illustrate the points made, which is necessary. I've given it three stars because the text could a little clearer in places, and because there is the odd statement which seems to contradict what I read elsewhere, such as the age of parts of some chondrites being between 5 and 6 Bn years. I can't find anything elsewhere which quotes figures above 4.6Bn, so have to feel that the book's figures are unsubstantiated. It also shows one meteorite three times using the same picture, but assigns it a slightly different classification each time. That doesn't inspire confidence.

Whilst I do feel better informed overall about the types and origins of meteorites, which is what I wanted primarily, the book under the auspices of the Natural History Museum (which is also available from Amazon) is a much better book.

Some useful information, but a lot of completely irrelevant and confusing content. The book is incoherent in presentation and style. There are numerous photographs of meteorites, but many are very poor, often with repetitive views of the same specimen.
