This book mentions Sir Patrick Moore in its Acknowledgement section and its Foreword. But I found a book by Sir Patrick Moore which focuses on the moon and is a bit more to my tase, and I intend to proceed w/ that instead.

I thought this was a very good book on the solar system. It is written for the general public in a very readable way. Each planet is looked at, not in detail, but in ways that explain the planet's meaning to us, and what is known about it. Highly recommended for public and school libraries, and for amateur astronomers who want a good book on their hobby for their spouses and friends to read. ( )
