"Well-written and well-presented text which will appeal to both specialists and non-specialists."
(Aslib Book Guide)

"As in earlier editions, the book nicely occupies the gap between popular texts and those that grapple with a full general relativistic approach; it provides just about the right level of numerical and mathematical detail for an introductory course at, say, first- or second-year undergraduate level [...] a handy little book."
(The Observatory)
