This book is a fast and fun; a real page turner it’s straight forward and logical. It leans towards the Beginning; Basic to Intermediate Astronomer it’s an excellent primer. Most of the information presented is not new if you know where to look, but it is in one place. It’s up to date and current (2014) on our solar system and the missions currently underway. It has new information the general reader would find fascinating. The Authors kept the math and chemistry to a minimum, so you can learn something new about the solar system without a bunch jargon.
