Media reviews

From the reviews: "The text is presented in a very pedagogical way, allowing beginners to appreciate the quality of the book. ! This book is very well written and easy to follow and doesn't need a huge background on astrophysics. I recommend this book for teachers as well as students and everyone who is interested in star physics." (Terence Delsate, Physicalia, Vol. 30 (2), 2008) "This short ! and well written book provides a clear introduction with notable insight into the complex astrophysical subject represented by the theoretical study of the structure and composition of compact stars. ! this book also be a useful reference for astrophysical concepts and results, and makes it altogether advisable for upper-undergraduate and graduate level students in astrophysics ! ." (Giovanni Preti, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 b)
