I loved the British version of Nield's book "Incoming! Or, Why We Should Stop Worrying And Learn To Love The Meteorite" It made me add a sample of Barwell to my wishlist.
Dr. Grady's book sounds as if every meteorite collector will want to have it inthier library. A photo guide to meteorite classifications!

Thanks,

Peter

I have to say that I enjoy meteorite books nearly as much as the meteorites themselves! My newest additions include Space Nomads by Lincoln and Jean LaPaz, Meteorites Messengers from Space and Meteorites of Alberta. Didn't see these listed in the sticky so I thought I would mention them.

I see in the current "Astronomy" magazine (June 2012 page 67) they're saying that next month's issue will have a story titled "How to Collect Rocks from Space"

Just wanted to share a new meteorite book title with the group, it's called Meteorites Witnesses of the Origin of the Solar System by Franz Brandstatter, Ludovic Ferriere and Christian Koberl. My copy arrived this week and it is full of stunning photographs and excellent content too. The main emphasis is on the Vienna collection as it was published to mark the reopening of the modernized meteorite hall in Vienna. I highly recommend this new release!
