MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book is a solid, comprehensive ... text providing a full overview of solar-terrestrial science, pitched at the graduate student level. The book provides an excellent summary of the underlying physics controlling Sun-Earth connections, and it certainly merits a place on the bookshelf of an academic working in the field. ... is worthwhile for working solar-terrestrial physicists ... . If you are an ambitious graduate student and have decided you want to make a career in solar-terrestrial physics, then you might consider it ... ." (Andy Breen, EOS, Vol. 90 (11), March, 2009)
