NEW YORK TIMES science reporter Dava Sobel shares her lifelong fascination with the planets of our solar system in her latest book, detailing not just the scientific data about rings or atmosphere but the legends of Mercury racing across the sky and the histories of our knowledge of each planet as well. Listeners will hear Sobel's excitement in Lorna Raver's narration, which steers clear of dryness to bring alive the joy of learning. In Sobel's voice, she sounds like she's eagerly sharing a favorite pastime. Listeners might not take up planet watching, but they'll certainly pick up a few facts about the solar system we live in.
