"This is one of the few books I've ever reviewed that I couldn't put down. The book explores different careers in the Antarctic using examples of real scientists in the field . . . The reading flows so easily that younger students with an interest in science would enjoy the book as well. I highly recommend this book for students who want to explore scientific fields as well as increase their knowledge of extreme environments on Earth. It would also make a great read aloud for younger children to stimulate their interest in science.” — National Science Teachers Association Recommends Web site, posted March 19, 2009
