June 2006 book reviews
Discover this month's offerings of astronomy titles.
April 21, 2006
Dava Sobel, 288 pages; Viking Adult, 2005; hardcover, $24.95
I've tasted Moon dust like Dava Sobel's friend as told in this new book. I can't say it transformed me in any way, but the offer was too good to refuse. Like the temptation of Moon dust, Sobel's The Planets is just too good for anyone who loves the sky to pass on.
