From the original publication:
The Saturn system is the most complex in the solar system, and this book is to summarize it all: the planet, rings, satellites, the magnetospheres, and the interaction with the interplanetary medium. The effective date of the material is approximately November 1983.

"Saturn the planet, its atmosphere and magnetosphere, rings, and satellites are all here, discussed and analyzed in detail by experts. . . . The timeliness of this book is not likely to be quickly compromised, and it is likely to stand for some time as the authoritative work on the most remote of the planets known to antiquity."—Choice

"An excellent book. . . . Nowhere else in the literature is there as comprehensive, up-to-date, and accurate a summary of Saturn science. This book is an essential acquisition for libraries."—Science
