Features and Reviews
This should be on all school's book lists. This is the second book that my children have read from this series and has proved invaluable for their school projects. Even their teacher wants a copy! Informative, easy to read without being childish - fantastic! - H.S. MarkhamThe most fascinating thing about this book and, indeed, this series of books from Apogee, is there access to NASA's records. Deep space is an endlessly interesting subject; and this particular book is quite well done. Whitfield knew what to put in and what to leave out in order to maintain the flow. - F. Sandercombe
