“If you’re interested in learning about meteorites, it makes sense to go to the master — a seasoned field geologist, television personality, and a guy who has built a small empire finding and marketing not just meteorites, but the adventure of finding them. Geoffrey Notkin, who, besides his other tireless endeavors, finds time to serve on the Board of Governors of the National Space Society, writes this handbook to that adventure in a witty and engaging style, sharing the excitement and passions that he experiences in his trade. The best part? You can do it too, and this book will tell you how, and more importantly, why you’d want to. And while you may strike it rich, that’s not really the point … it’s about living a passionate life, as Notkin has; an experience he relays in an engaging and approachable fashion.”Rod PyleNoted author of 15 books on space and scienceEditor in Chief of “Ad Astra” magazine for the National Space Society“Packed with anecdotes and indispensable tips, the author’s passion for meteorites will surely have you mounting a meteorite hunting expedition into your own back yard … or the ends of the Earth”Amy Shira Teitel, author of “Breaking the Chains of Gravity” and host of “Vintage Space”
