This wonderful book gives you the state of the art in the search of extraterrestrial life in our solar system. From the controversial findings in martian meteorites, to the promising environment of Saturn's moon Titan, we learn that extraterrestrial life is possible on a variety of abodes. we have only to go and try to find them. And what this entails about the possibilities of life outside the Solar System? in the final chapters the Authors give some interesting speculations on this topic.
A book to read, highly recommended!

HASH(0x95ae7c24) out of 5 stars A groundbreaking gem March 16 2010
By Alberto G. Fairen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is written incredibly well. I'm amazed at how Dirk can speak to a specialist and to the general public. The book is very cleverly written with just the right mix of hard science and fascinating and delightfully enjoyable reading. Dirk offers a plethora of information about the current state of the astrobiological quest, coming through with the scientific details but making them accessible to non-specialists. And this is so because Dirk is a top planetary scientist who also happens to be a gifted writer and communicator. Also, this is the very first book dealing with the issue of life in the Universe that seriously considers the possibility that we have already found life in other planets, and this awesome conclusion is based on a solid revisit of the scientific evidence gathered during the last decades of spatial exploration. I highly recommend this book to any person that is interested in the planetary exploration and the search for life elsewhere. This is an excellent book in every way imaginable.

HASH(0x95ae9078) out of 5 stars Interesting Book Oct. 30 2010

If you are interested in the possibility of life beyond Earth, I recommend that you read this book. I am only half way through it. But it is exciting to know that there is strong evidence out there that suggests that there is life on other planets.

This book is OK but not in the same class as Paul Davies' new book "The Erie Silence".
