    1. Up-to-date, brief yet thorough, well-written, beautifully illustrated excellent introduction for the meteorite enthusiast or would-be hunter. A book that fosters interest and inspires wonder, yet doesn't neglect the practical necessities or the potentially hazardous conditions that may await the do-it-yourself-er.

    2. It has everything you need to know about hunting and collecting meteorites, but were afraid to ask! From the beginner to the experienced, a great book!!!!
