Quote:My copy arrived today and what a gorgeous book it is!!! This genuine first edition came through Amazon and in perfect condition -- I'm glad it wasn't one of their POD books! I see it was published at $40 originally and the quality is great.The photos are superb -- large and detailed. Titan's photos are just what I've been looking for! Spectacular closeups. I have the "Titan Unveiled" book, but although it's very informative it greatly lacks in good photos with only a few color plates in the center of the book. This Saturn book makes up for what the other lacks. The other moons and Saturn's rings are portrayed in crisp views too. Now I have another wonderful book to read on these seemingly never-ending rainy evenings. Many thanks for mentioning this book and reviewing it Jim! ---Maya

Quote:Quote:Is the "Titan Unveiled" book a good read?Yes, Rob, in my estimation, it is well worth getting. It covers the mission very thoroughly, and is presented not in a "dry" or overly technical manner but as an insider's account by Lorenz, covering the challenges and discoveries of this amazing moon. I enjoyed it!---Maya
