Astronomy Now an excellent introduction to Moons in a genuinely pocket-sized book that won't break the bank.

Lewis Dartnell, BBC Sky at Night delightful

Network Reviews A highly readable and informative book.

Geoscientist This small, densely packed paperback is a fantastic starting point for those interested in learning more about the 190 or so moons found within our solar system. Not merely a book of tables and facts about these celestial bodies, Moons covers the rich history of exploration and discovery along with the ideas that were shaped and moulded by astronomers across the ages.
