THE PLANETS:PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE ARCHIVES OF NASA BY NIRMALA NATARAJ is what I would label a coffee table book. With the exception of an intro from Bill Nye the book ,one stunning photo after another of our universe, with small paragraphical descriptions and credits included. But mostly you see our universe in very professional photos. Of course, my favorite is Mars as I have been fascinated by the images that the two rovers have sent us. It's not very easy to "review " a book that is nothing but photos and my main statement would be You have to see this book to really enjoy the universe in all its splendor! I received this book free from goodreads in exchange for an honest review.
