'Each topic is explained from the ground up, giving the reader all the information needed to proceed further. The book manages to present (without losing scientific rigour) one of the most fascinating subjects of modern astrophysics.' Cesare Chiosi, Nature
'This is a good and useful book ... The astrophysicist will find the astronomical lore enlightening, and the astronomer will find references to discussions of the underlying physics.' Physics Today
'... this is an excellent book - in fact, the best I know in this field. It provides an excellent introduction to more detailed review articles on specific topics, it contains a wealth of information, and it evidences an exceptionally broad and sound understanding of a key part of the formation and evolution of the universe.' Gerry Gilmore, Astronomy and Geophysics
'This book fills a gap in astrophysical literature ... certainly helpful for any instructor who wishes to teach a one-semester course on these subjects, especially because the author has included many end-chapter problems with hints for their solutions ... a conceptually very successful and useful book.' Mounib El Eid, Transport in Porous Media
