"Delivering compact but broad summations about the origin of the universe, solar system, and life on Earth (and elsewhere, at least in theory), these surveys are well suited for review or reinforcement reading. Life on Earth covers our planet's placement in the solar system's "Goldilocks" zone and offers an overview about the search for exoplanets. Other volumes make similarly close examinations of the history and techniques of astronomy and space exploration, as well as current knowledge. Each title is illustrated with plenty of well-chosen, often-dramatic captioned space photos and images to go with the main narratives and many sidebars. Of the lot, Space Exploration is the least satisfying as it gives satellite technology and consumer and medical products hardly a glance before going on to less tangible attractions. However, this title, along with Solar System, finishes off with a page of intriguing "Topics to investigate."
