"The book comprises seven, well-illustrated chapters: the first begin a good summary of pre-space-age knowledge of the planet. ... this is a good book and a pleasure to own. It will live where it can be found easily." (Jeremy Joseph, Geoscientist, Vol. 26, July, 2016) "Rothery has crafted an engaging and well-constructed book, which is copiously sprinkled with clear illustrations, most of which are in colour. It ought to enjoy a wide readership from the dedicated amateur to the professional specialist. ... Very few books devoted to the planet Mercury exist; this latest one is a must for astronomical libraries." (Richard McKim, The Observatory, Vol. 136 (1250), February, 2016)
