Compiled by a team of experts, this textbook has been designed for introductory university courses in planetary science. It starts with a tour of the Solar System and an overview of its formation. The composition, internal structure, surface morphology and atmospheres of the terrestrial planets are then described. This leads naturally to a discussion of the giant planets and why they are compositionally different. Minor bodies are reviewed and the book concludes with a discussion of the origin of the Solar System and the evidence from meteorites. Written in an accessible style that avoids complex mathematics, and illustrated in colour throughout, this book is suitable for self-study and will appeal to amateur enthusiasts as well as undergraduate students. It contains numerous helpful learning features such as boxed summaries, student exercises with full solutions, and a glossary of terms. The book is also supported by a website hosting further teaching materials.

A breathtaking look at the most beautiful of all the planets with its magnificent rings and moons. From School Library Journal: "An introduction to the planet and its major satellites. Despite the strength of the text, it is the color photos that steal the show, highlighting [the] planet’s exotic beauty in much the same way that black-and-white photography accented the moon's starkness. In all, a delightful coupling of sound exposition with dazzling illustrations.” Newly Updated 2012.
