We present the most recent solar neutrino results from the Borexino experiment at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory. In particular, refined measurements of all neutrinos produced in the {\it pp} fusion chain have been made. It is the first time that the same detector measures the entire range of solar neutrinos at once. These new data weakly favor a high-metallicity Sun. Prospects for measuring CNO solar neutrinos are also discussed.

The paper provides an excellent review and status report on the impressive accomplishments of the Borexino experiment.


There were some places where minor wording changes would improve the flow of the text.


It is a very nice proceeding summarizing the status of Borexino's solar neutrino work. I have very little comment.
