Aus den Rezensionen: "... Der hier vorliegende ... Band umfasst die Periode 2003 bis 2005. In ihm sind alle in dieser Periode neu mit Namen versehenen Kleinplaneten und deren Entdeckungsumstände registriert. Zusätzlich findet man ... auch Korrekturen und Ergänzungen zu den früheren Bänden ... Zwar bleibt die gewohnte Grundstruktur des Gesamtwerks erhalten, es kommen jedoch ein paar äußerst nützliche Neuerungen hinzu. Auf den gewohnt umfangreichen Anhang muss ... niemand verzichten. Die Tabellen werden ... aktualisiert ... Das neue Konzept des Schmadelschen 'Dictionary' erscheint dem Rezensenten stimmig. ..." (Gerhard Klare, in: Sterne und Weltraum, April 2007, S. 97 f.)
From the reviews of the sixth edition: "German astronomer and historian Schmadel (Heidelberg Univ.) has published a sixth edition ... of this annotated compilation of the named minor planets, with more than 7,000 entries added since the last edition. ... Following the planet's name is a short descriptive history of whom the planet was named for. ... Although this book is intended for special users, its organization and annotations can give budding scientists a glimpse into the history of astronomy. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals/practitioners." (R. J. Havlik, Choice, Vol. 50 (7), March, 2013)
