This book does a fantastic job of introducing concepts in geology, biology, chemistry, physics, and of course astronomy, and ties them all together with the search for extraterrestrial life. The book was both entertaining and informative, and was truly a pleasure to read.

If this book were cheaper I would recommend it for laymen to read if the search for ET is an affinity or interest. The book is relatively thin, and like most text books I can't figure out why they are so expensive when I can buy books of the same or bigger sizes new for $20. It is also a paperback, which I don't like very much as I prefer hardcovers for books that I will keep and reference later. Still, for use in a class it is actually a great book. 4.5/5 stars.

This book is almost identical to the next edition! Buy this edition instead of the new version it will save Students money. Some questions at the ends of the chapters are different but there isn't mush different! Hope this helps students!

This was an absolutely fascinating book. It really discusses the details of possible life in our universe and takes and in depth look at what possibilities of life are out there just waiting to be found on our planet, in our solar system, and beyond.

Just what I needed for my college class.

I ordered this book for a family member and she is very appreciative of the gift. She wants to read more of Jeffrey Bennett's books, and I will order them for her whenever she requests.

Life Beyond the Universe is a good text for teaching the concept of life beyond Earth. It integrates the primary sciences of Astronomy, Geology, and Biology. I like the way it is set up in general as it incorporates many of the concepts of learning.

While it was created for a college course, I have used it for teaching Juniors and Seniors in High school. The first edition is too outdated. And the 3rd edition was beyond my budget. The second edition has changes from the first that I prefered. Over all, it is a good first text for astrobiology.
Great textbook, used for class.
