Specialty Press is known for high quality books and this one certainly follows in that mold. The attention to detail and quality research along with the typical superlative images makes for a book that I can quite easily recommend to you. Highly recommended. - --Modeling Madness, reviewed by Scott Van Aken, October 2009<br /><br />As with every other Specialty Press title I've read, this book is a treasure trove of information. If you have any interest at all in the subject matter it is well worth picking up. Highly recommended. ---Starship Modeler, reviewed by John Lester, October 2009<br /><br />It is a great reference source for not only the final servicing mission, but for the whole Hubble program up to this point and I can highly recommend this book to anyone interested in space subjects. - --IPMS, reviewed by Ben Guenther, December 2009

The photographs are very nicely reproduced with sharp colors, fine details, and rich blacks. Considering that there are over 300 of them, the current going price for this book is pretty reasonable. Although it doesn't provide an intimidate depiction of a single Space Shuttle mission like Jenkins' and Frank's STS-114 scrapbook did (Atlantis doesn't even get off the launch pad until page 86!), it's still a cool book for space buffs.
