[In The Moon: Earth's Natural Satellite] Franklyn Branley, authority in the field, sorts out the various conventions and theories regarding the moon, separating fact from fancy, and, by his enthusiastic style, manages to render the factual study of the moon as exciting as any less rigorous analysis. In an atmosphere geared to the launching of man-made satellites, this account of earth's dazzling natural satellite is both revealing and profitable.
