Reviews - What do our customers think?
Doorway to a fascination with science  Nov 7, 2007
My 8 year old son spends hours and hours and hours and hours...did I say hours and hours? ...looking at this book. He scrutinizes every photo and every word on every page, and there's always something new to find. If you ask him what his favorite planet or moon is, he'll give you a different answer every day. This is an extraordinary book for budding young minds, no child can resist it.
Simply Beautiful  Oct 5, 2007
I looked through this while waiting for an appoinment. I am so glad that they kept me waiting so that I could finish this book. The images of the planets of our solar system in this book are among the most stunning I have ever seen. Each image is accompanied by a brief description on the bottom that does not intrude into the photography. Satisfies both of my interests of astronomy and photography. Now I am waiting for my own copy!
Great for Education  May 14, 2007
I used this book to supplement the textbook when teaching an 8th grade unit on astronomy. I thought the kids would think looking at a picture book was totally lame, but they loved it. The pictures in this book are so detailed and incredibly large (which makes it great for the classroom). There are even pictures that show the surface of Venus through its thick atmosphere, close ups of Jupiter's roiling storms and a head-on shot of Saturn's rings that show you how thin they are. Coverage of the most striking moons is also given. The information is brief, but satisfying and readable for all levels.
Simply stunning  Apr 10, 2007
This book contains some of the most stunning images of the sun and the planets in our solar system. The quality of the paper and printing is excellent. Each of the planets is covered with a brief but informative page of current information (late 2006) accompanied by very high resolution images from the latest probes and satellites. If you have any interest in astronomy or science in general, this book will not disappoint. I picked it up at a local store on clearance for ten bucks and was amazed at the beauty of the book as I went through it. I'm planning on picking up one or two more copies to give as gifts. Being a long-time photographer and amatuer astronomer, I'm not easily impressed with most books of this type, but Sparrow did a great job assembling this information and these images.
