MEDIA REVIEWS
" "Revealing the Universe" explores the interaction of theory and observation as it occurs today on the frontiers of astronomy. In doing so, it traces the development of Einstein's theory of relativity and conveys current ideas about quasars and black holes, X-ray bursters, the Sun's corona; the evolution of the solar system, and the age and structure of the universe. ...Each of these topics is addressed by two authorities - one a theorist and the other an observer." - "Astronomy"
