From the reviews: "This very readable work, part of the `SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences' series, traces the history of geologic understanding of the moon, with a particular focus on magnetism. ... The book has merit in documenting and summarizing this history, and might serve as a reading assignment for an upper-level seminar. Figure quality is functional. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (I. D. Sasowsky, Choice, Vol. 51 (10), June, 2014)
