This is a cool book. Spectacularly illustrated, it conveys some of astronomy's heaviest facts in a light and airy way. Readers should have fun reading it. -- Paul W. Hodge, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy, University of Washington

David Baker is the Chairman of the Physics Department at Austin College. Todd Ratcliff is a planetary geophysicist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.


Laid out in 50 brief but beautifully illustrated chapters, The 50 Most Extreme Places in Our Solar System is hugely enjoyable. -- Jim Wild Times Higher Education 20101104 Just from a casual look, I can tell that this is the sort of book I would have pored over for hours at a certain phase in my life; if you have a young or young-at-heart stargazer in your home, I would encourage you to check it out. -- Michael Merschel Dallas Morning News 20101028 As may be deduced from the title, this book would be of immediate interest to younger readers and their attention would easily be maintained by the tone and clarity of the writing. That said, more seasoned readers will also find it an enjoyable and fascinating look at the Solar System around us and will no doubt broaden their knowledge. I fully recommend this book to anyone of any age with an interest in the Solar System and how much of a hostile, humbling and amazing place it is to exist. -- David Powell Astronomy Now 20110101
