Solar System for iPad has been downloaded almost 100,000 times in 10 months. "An out-of-this-world digital book that is as informative as it is beautiful," said USA Today. It won The Bookseller 2011 Digital Innovation of the Year as well as Best App of 2011. But, if you were not lucky enough to have an iPad, you were stuck.

Not any more.

Now, at last, comes the book of the App. Written by former CalTech astronomer, Marcus Chown, and with the very best of the 800 images of the interactive book, Solar System is an awe-inspiring introduction to our cosmic backyard. Perfect for Christmas!

Did you know that...?
