Beginning with basic facts about the observable universe, this book reviews the complete range of topics that make up a degree course in cosmology and particle astrophysics. The book is self-contained - no specialised knowledge is required on the part of the reader, apart from undergraduate math and physics. This paperback edition targets students of physics, astrophysics and cosmology from advanced undergraduate to early graduate level.

From the reviews of the second edition:
"Bergstrom and Goobar's (hereafter B&G) ... are addressing students who already have some knowledge of advanced quantum mechanics and classical field theory ... . The book is meant for use at the graduate level, probably the second year by US standards ... . There are worked problems in the text and 2 - 15 problems at the ends of each of the 15 chapters ... . B&G might well be a good fit to a seminar for students beginning in that area." (Virginia Trimble, Classical and Quantum Gravity, Issue 24, 2007)
