Book Description:

A decade of stunning discoveries has rewritten the road map of our solar system. Bright comets blazed in the sky while Galileo beamed back astonishing images from Jupiter and Mars Pathfinder sped to the surface of Mars. A comet hit Jupiter, as telescopes discovered swarms of minor planets at the icy limit of the solar system, and new planets beyond orbiting nearby stars. These discoveries have required a completely new edition of The New Solar System, compiled by researchers who participated in many of the recent planetary missions.

About the Author:

A publishing veteran with 25 years of consulting, management and operational experience, Brian O'Leary is founder and principal of Magellan Consulting Partners, whose clients include major media firms as well as smaller and not-for-profit entities with significant publishing and media commitments. The firm's practice areas include operational improvement, revenue development, market analysis and business planning. Work done by the firm most often results in both immediate and mid-term changes in processes, structures and in some cases technologies used to produce client content. For Magellan clients, Mr. O'Leary has also written several business plans to guide start-up and growth opportunities. Prior to starting Magellan Media, Mr. O'Leary served as senior VP and associate publisher with Hammond Inc., an internationally recognized geographic reference publisher. Responsible for editorial content, database development, production and operations, Mr. O'Leary restructured editorial operations to benefit from the firm's prior technology investments. He also substantially increased the pace of the company's new-product development efforts. Before Hammond, Mr. O'Leary directed operations at several of Time Inc.'s weekly magazines and was part of the team that launched Entertainment Weekly. He joined the firm in 1983, after earning an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. Mr. O'Leary also holds an A.B. in chemistry from Harvard College.

Laura Beatty worked in the art world in London and New York. This is her first book.
