  • Thrilling ... Lucie Green's huge enthusiasm for the Sun is apparent throughout

    Pippa Goldschmidt, Spectator
  • Green, a solar physicist at University College London, is an engaging and careful companion. She is clearly enamoured of her subject and keen to acknowledge those who have gone before her ... Reading this book confirms what I felt as a student: that truly understanding the Sun is as much about philosophy as it is about physics

    Anjana Ahuja, Financial Times
