This is an interesting book, without question. I've been aware of Hartmann for several decades, at least. He is not only a planetary geologist, but an accomplished artist and has turned out some superb illustrations of space-related things. I've used them in classes and in giving public talks. His book is a massive compendium of information and, as such, is one of the most useful planetary reference books that I have. However, I found that the structure and organization of the book is such that I would be totally unable to use it as a text book in the way that I teach and, I suspect, that most other professors would have the same difficulties. Also, as a book, I find it both interesting and informative, but I could never sit down and read it cover to cover. The organization just won't allow it. I use it as a reference. If I'm interested it Titan (a large satellite of Saturn), for example, I go to his index, look up Titan and see what categories of information he might have and go the the referred spots for information. In this way, it's a very interesting and useful book and I recommend it, if that fits your needs.
Note that my comments apply to the fourth edition and this is a sales page for the fifth edition.Read more ›
