From the reviews:
"A collection of articles about life, habitability and astrobiology, that should find a place on everyone's reading-list who's interested in the possibility of extraterrestrial life and the quickly evolving field of astrobiology and search for exoplanets and naturally also SETI. ... it's definitely a fascinating book. The best part about the book might be that you get to know some of the objects of the Solar system a lot more from the habitability aspect." (Kadri Tinn, AstroMadness.com, March, 2014)
"Rich in subject matter, this book is exceptionally broad in its coverage of the evolutionary boundary between inorganic and organic matter. ... Figures, diagrams, and color photos are well chosen. ... Extensive references follow each chapter. This book will appeal to astronomers, chemists, and biologists as well as practicing astrobiologists who wish to explore the current extent of research and thinking in this new field. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (W. E. Howard III, Choice, Vol. 50 (9), May, 2013)
