From the reviews of the first edition:
"... carefully crafted and well-written." (Stefan Westerhoff, Columbia University, Physics Today, September 2004)
"This publication ... is aimed at serious students of the subject. ... Arranged in two parts, Stanev first describes the standard model of cosmic rays and the interactions that are important ... . The second part describes the challenges of current cosmic ray research ... . It is a `must read' for those with a passion to find out more about the high energy universe." (Roger Feasey, Journal of the Auckland Astronomical Society AAS, August, 2005)
"Todor Stanev ... has distilled the essence of cosmic ray physics. It is a magnificent achievement and will be invaluable for workers in the field. It should also be available for consultation by researchers in related disciplines ... there will also be a need to make use of excellent list of referenced material." (Roger Clay, The Physicist, Vol. 41 (5), September/October, 2004)
