Ahh, one of the first SF novels I've ever read in my younger years, when -and maybe symbolically- my own childhood was coming at an end...Exact same cover too, but in Greek of course (``To Tehlohs Tees Ehohneeohteetahs``)... (comment by paxi)
The astronomer who inadvertently triggered the "demotion" of Pluto in his effort to officially recognize the solar system's tenth planet describes the ensuing debates and public outcry while revealing the behind-the-scenes story of his discovery.
Issac Asimove "Nine Tomorrows" Excellent science fiction book made of nine short stories. You will read great stories whose ideas have been borrowed for science fiction movies in one form or another. My favorite of the series are The Ugly Little Boy and Profession. Seek out this book and enjoy.
