This is a book review of Fifty Years of Quasars: From Early Observations and Ideas to Future Research, edited by M. D'Onofrio, P. Marziani and J. W. Sulentic. It consists mainly of questions posed by the editors to 53 researchers (including the editors). As such, there is little overlap of material (except where different opinions are desired) and the book is well structured, but at the same time it reflects the thinking of many people. I'm not sure who the intended audience is, but it should prove useful to readers who want a good introduction to specific areas of quasar research. Although probably for most readers more a book for dipping into than reading cover to cover, almost everyone interested in astronomy would probably enjoy reading chapters 1, 2, 8 and 9 for a good overview of the past and future of quasar research in less than 150 pages.
