Drawing upon the latest results from the second golden age of Solar System exploration, author Peter Bond provides an authoritative and up–to–date account of the planets, satellites and smaller debris that orbit the Sun.

Written in an informal style, with minimal use of mathematics, this book is the ideal introductory text for non–science students and other readers with little or no science background. With the aid of numerous illustrations, many in full colour, this exciting book brings to life the weird and wonderful worlds that populate our corner of the Universe.
