Aus den Rezensionen: "Ein gutes und gleichzeitig umfassendes Buch uber Roentgenastronomie zu finden ist schwer, ein aktuelles Lehrbuch gar unmoeglich. Jeder, der Roentgenastronomie lehrt, steht daher vor der Aufgabe, selbst ein Skript zu erstellen. ... Ausfuhrlich werden Sterne und Supernovae diskutiert. ... Abbildungen der zahlreichen Spektren und Lichtkurven sind vielfach gut reproduziert ... Jedes Kapitel ist fur sich selbst umfassend und lesenswert. ... ein Kompendium fur den lehrenden Wissenschaftler, Einfuhrungslekture fur junge Forscher oder fur fachangrenzende Wissenschaftler ..." (Jurgen Kerp, in: Physik Journal, January/2010, Vol. 9, Issue 1, S. 69)
