“Heat: Adventures in the World’s Fiery Places” by Bill Streever is a wide-ranging exploration of heat and its effects on a broad span of human and natural phenomena. It follows his national bestseller “Cold,” which covered the opposite end of the thermal spectrum. I have not read “Cold,” but by all accounts both books follow a similar trajectory.

I have read the book, “Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of Vegetation,” with great pleasure. It provides a comprehensive overview with plenty of useful references to the literature. On one hand, there is an extensive overview of existing techniques and state-ofthe-art methods. In a single reference, the reader is offered an overview of hyperspectral vegetation indices (HVI) in clear tables, without the need to search and browse through a large number of papers to find the appropriate index for his or her particular problem.
