This is a fascinating book on a timely subject, but it is not an easy read, despite the fact that it is being marketed for kids as young as ten...The writing is first rate, the facts and anecdotes informative and entertaining.
The writing style is clear and engrossing, especially in the passages that deal with activities in which the scientists engaged. It is a recommended purchase for all libraries with strong young adult nonfiction collections.

This exciting book is certain to fascinate readers...A blend of colorful full-bleed photos with text overlaid and smaller, bordered images makes for a dynamic layout. The wonderfully written narrative will pull youngsters into the book and hold them there willingly until the last page.
