Format: Paperback
The book is a useful collection of paper (some long, some short) on the definition and physics behind the "habitable zones" around stars. While perhaps not technical enough for all applications, it's nice to finally see many of these issues discussed in one volume, instead of spread throughout many different journals and texts. The climate of such planets is covered of course, but the addition of topics such as how stellar evolution influences the habitable zone (how long is the habitable zone habitable, for instance), the implications of high planetary obliquity, and atmospheric collapse of tidally locked planets round out the presentation. While somewhat lacking in math for such a text, perhaps the biggest negative I can see is that some of the material is not as up-to-date as I would like, but in a field like this that would be hard to do even if it was annually updated.
