Reviews

"I've always wanted to read a first-class book about meteorites. Chris Cokinos has finally written that book. It's a shooting star, and I stayed up late reading it." -Richard Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Making of the Atomic Bomb" and "Dark Sun: The Making of the Hydrogen Bomb" "Christopher Cokinos goes from pole to pole in his search for the bits of cosmos that fall onto the Earth, and the remarkable people who collect and study them. He is a natural philosopher and gifted writer who sprinkles his own kind of stardust on every page. If you have ever wished upon a falling star, this is your chance to know just what is falling, where it comes from, what it tells us about our place in the universe-and what things in life are worth wishing for." -Chet Raymo, former "Boston Globe" science columnist and bestselling author of "The Dork of Cork" and "Walking Zero"
