From the reviews:

"Covering the physical characteristics of Mercury and Venus and then outlining the instruments and techniques employed to observe them in a single book was always going to be ambitious. … Peter Grego has had a good stab at it and the resulting text contains hardly any filler in its 262 pages. … it’s an approachable read that you will return to again and again. Hopefully, it will inspire more astronomers to observe and record the inner planets." (Grant Privett, BBC Sky at Night, June, 2008)

"A new guide to the two inferior planets of the solar system. … Grego provides instruction in how to observe these bodies, and describes their origins, ‘geography,’ and qualities unique to each planet. The work is useful to the beginner and experienced alike in the use of optics, recording methods, and specifics for each planet. A short Internet resource guide, black-and-white and color photos, a subject index, and planet-specific feature indexes enhance the book. … Summing Up: Recommended. All readers/libraries." (M. V. Golden, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), August, 2008)
