From the reviews:

“Cosmic Biology discusses the feasibility of life in the scorching cloud decks of Venus or within the volcanic violence of lo. … This neat trick holds up a mirror to our own efforts at characterising the extrasolar planets we’re now discovering. … long data tables, information dense diagrams and sections that sometimes read like expanded bullet point lists gives the volume the feel of a textbook. … a great book to push your horizons if you’re already familiar with the themes of astrobiology … .” (Lewis Dartnell, Sky at Night Magazine, August, 2011)

“The text, which is intended for nonscientists, are novel and distinctly important scientifically. … The core of the book covers case history examinations of possible biological planets, moons, and exoplanets. For those who teach about the possibility of life on other planets, this book provides an excellent introduction to these alternative worlds and, in doing so, accomplishes more than the authors’ modest claims in the preface. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries.” (P. K. Strother, Choice, Vol. 48 (11), July, 2011)
