With this revised edition of THE SOLAR SYSTEM, author Mike Seeds' goal is to help you use astronomy to understand science -- and use science to understand what we are. Fascinating and engaging, this text will help you answer two fundamental questions: What are we? How do we know? Crafting a story about astronomy, Seeds shows you how to ask questions to gradually puzzle out the beautiful secrets of the physical world and our place in it. This edition addresses the newest developments and latest discoveries in the exciting study of astronomy, including new data on Jupiter's ring system; new observations of the shapes of stars; new evidence of dark energy, quasars, and galaxy collisions; and a look inside supernova explosions.

I bought this used, so I had to anticipate some rips and tears. Nothing major. No missing pages and no damage that prevented me from reading it. I'll probably put it up for sale here again now that my semester is over.
I bought this book for my Astronomy class and then found out I wouldn't need the book this semester. Even though I returned it, I looked through it and found it very interesting. It is very up-to-date with all the newest info on the subject.
