I just ordered one from amazon.co.uk together with Titan Unveiled. The physical edition in both cases. I probably wouldn't consider buying an ebook unless it was a thriller or stuff like that - I want physical copies of books that have nice illustrations/photos.

The "backlog" of books I really want is now slightly shorter with "only" about 5-10 planetary/space science books left that I really want.

I find it a bit weird that Atlas of the Galilean Satellites available in the UK but not in the US. No problem for me though smile.gif.

I finally got the Atlas. It was worth to wait (I ordered it on 20th December 2009). Indeed the most complete maps of the Galilean Satellites yet, with no single Galileo picture missing, all in regional context. And many of them are unobtainable elsewhere.
Just perfect. Fantastic job, as usual, Paul !

Just as well. My "Buy a new book" money this month went to getting a new universal remote...

Hopefully it will be available here in the US next month.

Mine arrived on Friday! Haven't had chance to thoroughly peruse it yet, but the pages I have sampled so far are excellent.

It must be rewarding to see your 'baby' finally out and about in the public domain, Paul -- very well done!

I went to amazon uk and had a "look inside". I was impressed with how much of the book can be browsed for free. I think about 50 pages are on offer:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Atlas-Galilean-Sat...amp;sr=8-1#noop

The pages that I have seen for free are very impressive and I will be greatly tempted to buy myself the book for Christmas.
