'The book coveys the excitement and enthusiasm of the young authors for their work in Astronomy and Earth Science.' Europe & Astronomy '... you can't deny the excitement the writers felt for what they are doing; and in these secular times such excitement must serve to replace the fear of the Lord as the beginning of wisdom.'
