Format: Hardcover
This is a fun picture book for all ages. It would be well placed in a science teacher's classroom collection, or even in a science-buff's collection of coffee table books. While the text is filled with wonderful descriptions of Martian geology, of particular interest are the spectacular stereoscopic images of the Martian surface. This book takes the scientists view of space exploration, not that of an engineer, and devotes the bulk of it's attention to the planet. It does not spend a great deal of space describing the various engineering and robotics technologies that go into Mars exploration. Nor does it focus on the various challenges facing the team of scientists and engineers who command these enormously successful scientific adventures.

I pick up this book whenever I'm home alone and want to explore while feeling hopelessly earthbound and find myself endlessly revisiting it.

Format: Hardcover
The pictures in this book are outstanding. This book takes you on a fantastic tour of Mars. I especially enjoyed the discussions on the search for water on Mars and also the Viking mission as it searched for life. The 3D images of Mars was an unexpected surprise! I would highly recommend this book for everyone, especially teachers. This would be a great resource for the classroom.

Format: Hardcover
On the cover of the book it states that 3D glasses come with the book. You don't get the 3D glasses thus making the book useless since there is a whole section of 3D images. Stay away from it and get your images from NASA free! Amazon didn't send the glasses.

I ordered two books about Mars, and felt that this one was barely worth the price. There are few 3-D pictures, and you can get much better pics on the NASA web site. It was a disappointment.
