Are there any books that would be good for someone who is looking to learn about space rocks?  These rocks are incredibly interesting to me, but I know almost nothing about them. Maybe something that discusses the major impacts and subsequent meteorites recovered from them?  I certainly appreciate any help or recommendations.

Great summary, lots of info, essential:

https://www.amazon.c...y/dp/1848001568

 

This is also amazing and will greatly increase your appreciation of the hobby.  And it's just a very, very well-written book.  The price here is obviously out of control but it is available in other ways. Worth finding.

An old but nice little review of it.

This is another classic, by the author of the first book above.
