Review of the hardback: 'This text is an interesting addition to any library, and is suitable for students.' The Observatory Review of the hardback: 'The book is very well illustrated with clear diagrams and illustrations that serve to enhance the text. The historical perspective and the comprehensive reference list are invaluable to researchers, as is in the index. While many professionals in the field might not agree with the author's conclusions (so what's new in chondrite research?), this book is an extremely useful addition to any library.'
