'The authors have achieved a great deal by producing a comprehensive, and comprehensible textbook with very little mathematics. The chapters on cosmology are bang up-to-date, and succeed in putting across challenging concepts in an understandable way. The book is also well-illustrated and very nicely produced.' Professor Alan Heavens, University of Edinburgh
'An Introduction to Galaxies and Cosmology is an impressive textbook. I found the presentation to be accessible to a wide variety of students, yet comprehensive and very up-to-date. The relevant mathematics and physics are introduced clearly and gently; advanced topics are explained in a pedagogically effective manner. The style of presentation will attract and sustain the interest of a broad spectrum of readers; it involves them in the drama of search, discovery, and emergence of new mysteries.' Professor Robert Wagoner, Stanford University
'… I believe the authors have succeeded in their goal of finding a presentation style which ensures accessibility to curious amateur deep-sky enthusiasts as well as trained astrophysics students … I would recommend this book to any amateur with basic scientific grounding who seeks to learn more about the physics of deep sky objects. It is loaded with factual information, and produced to a high standard of accuracy and clarity throughout.' Journal of the British Astronomical Association
