Media reviews

More than twenty years ago, Tony McDonnel reviewed the subject of cosmic dust very comprehensively. After that beautiful work, no good review book on dusts has been published. Not until the recently published book Interplanetary Dust came out. This volume [...] is entirely devoted to discuss this topic and does so very comprehensively. The editors [...] made a tremendous effort to cover every aspect of the interplanetary dusts [...] What is positive about this book is that even a beginner can enjoy reading and can learn a great deal from it. [...] This is clearly 'a must have' book for all the astronomy libraries. (Indian Journal of Physics, 77B/5, 2003) "Interplanetary Dust is an extremely useful addition to the research library bookshelf. It is well referenced, narrowly focussed, and earnestly written." (The Observatory, 2002)
