The Planets by Dava Sobel

In The Planets, Dava Sobel helps us explore the nine planets of the solar system as well as the sun and the moon without leaving our favorite reading chair. Not only does she provide arcane information and the history of discovery for all these celestial bodies, but she approaches each one with a different theme and perspective. It's a mixture of the scientific and romantic facets of our solar system. The Planets has received mixed reviews with the San Diego Union Tribune saying "Sobel's gift, which is so evident and admirable in this book, is her ability to infuse dry, even mundane, science with poetry and romance, all of it easily and happily absorbed."
