Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
A lavishly illustrated account in the tradition of Longitude and Galileo's Daughter explores the creation and evolution of the solar system's planets through a lens of popular culture, drawing on sources from astrology, science fiction, the fine arts, and other genres to chronicle planetary history in a relevant and accessible format for lay readers. (Science & Mathematics)

Review:
"Thoroughly readable: not a dry recitation of the facts--though the facts are there--but a lively exploration of the historical and cultural meaning of the planets"

Kirkus, 07/15/2005

Review:
"This resonant and eclectic collection--informative, entertaining and poetic--is a joy to read." (starred review)
