'I can envisage this book being useful to physicists from other areas of specialization, who would like an overview of astrophysics and cosmology, or for workers in one of these areas who want to broaden their horizons. It could also be a text for graduate students in astronomy, astrophysics or astrophysical cosmology, who want a synoptic overview of these areas ... the book ... clearly separates speculation from well-established theory ... a sound work that will be well appreciated.' George Ellis, Nature Physics
'The astrophysical equivalent to Gombrich's Story of Art ... Written with grace, clarity and formidable knowledge, this is simply a book that every serious student of astrophysics must have.' Astronomy Now
