'The style of the book is detailed yet fluid. Figures and graphics are aptly chosen, especially the colour plates. Some new sketches by the author illustrate well our collective vision of Io's surface and subsurface on a broad scale. This book would make for a nice companion to any upper-level volcanology or remote-sensing course text.' Jani Radebaugh, Department of Geological Sciences, Brigham Young University, Utah
'... the first book to focus primarily on the observations and interpretations of Ionian volcanic activity and compare these processes to those seen on Earth. ... I believe it to be more suitable for teaching advanced level undergraduate courses and I would particularly recommend it for use by graduate level students and researchers in planetary science. It is especially suitable for terrestrial volcanologists wishing to better understand volcanic processes on other planets...' Earth, Moon and Planets
'...a great contribution to the field of volcanic remote sensing and to Io science.' Physics Today
'...an excellent text for both undergraduates and those involved in volcanic-planetary research.' Journal of Geological Magazine
"...useful and informative...Davies' writing style is clear and concise...a great contribution to the field of volcanic remote sensing and to Io science. I will use the text as a reference in my planetary volcanology lectures.... - David Williams, Physics Today
"[The author] is ideally placed to write such an in-depth review of comparative volcanology through his involvement with both terrestrial volcano monitoring programs (i.e., ASTER), and his involvement with the Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) instrument on the Galileo mission. His enthusiasm for understanding how volcanoes work is clearly illustrated through the level of detail involved in describing the methodology of both observational spectroscopy and theoretical modelling of magmatic systems." - K.H. Joy, Earth Moon Planet

"The style of the book is detailed yet fluid...this book would make for a nice companion to any upper-level volcanology or remote-sensing course text." --The Meteoritical Society
