From the reviews:

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2013

“Ulivi and Harland remedy this by providing rich, detailed overviews of Cassini, the Spirit and Opportunity rovers, and a number of less-well-known missions, such as Stardust. … The book features many illustrations, including images from the missions themselves, diagrams of the trajectories followed, and schematics of the spacecraft. … The book is well-researched and documented and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the exploration of Earth’s solar system. … Summing Up: Essential. All space history collections.” (C. Palma, Choice, Vol. 50 (7), March, 2013)
