Reviews

"Playful . . . lyrical . . . a guided tour so imaginative that we forget we're being educated as we're being entertained." --Newsweek"[Sobel] has outdone her extraordinary talent for keeping readers enthralled. . . . Longitude and Galileo's Daughter were exciting enough, but The Planets has a charm of its own . . . . A splendid and enticing book." --San Francisco Chronicle "A sublime journey. [Sobel's] writing . . . is as bright as the sun and its thinking as star-studded as the cosmos." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "An incantatory serenade to the Solar System. Grade A-" --Entertainment Weekly "Like Sobel's [Longitude and Galileo's Daughter] . . . [The Planets] combines masterful storytelling with clear, engaging explanations of the essential scientific facts." --Physics World
