Any Recommendations for Books About the Solar System?
« on: September 18, 2016, 03:17:26 PM »
I'm interested in getting a book (or books) about the solar system that is intended for adults. It seems like all of the books that are general overviews of the solar system that I see are intended for children/teens. The pictures and diagrams are often nice in the children's books, but I'd like more detailed/technical written content. Any suggestions?

After much more searching, it looks like my best options are (expensive) astronomy textbooks. I'm not purchasing yet, but I'm leaning towards this one, since it's pretty comprehensive and copyright 2016: https://www.amazon.com/21st-Century-Astronomy-Fifth-Laura-ebook/dp/B01GIB0O0U/ref=sr_1_5?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1474768754&sr=1-5
