'Rarely have I been as excited opening a book. Long rumoured on the astronomical grapevine, 'Warner' has finally arrived. We have not been disappointed. This is a magnificent book, a brilliant review of the field written by one of its founding fathers ... I can give no higher recommendation than to say that 'Warner' has already become the most used volume on my bookshelf, and will be an essential companion on my future observing trips and research visits.' Vik Dhillon, The Observatory
'The book is extremely thorough and would provide a good grounding to any PhD student or newcomer to the field. In fact it is a must for anyone seriously interested in CV research.' Janet Wood, Astronomy Now
'This recent addition to the series by Brian Warner, of the University of Cape Town, and a recognised authority on CVs, brings with it all the expected comprehensiveness and graphical detail to this subject.' Irish Astronomical Journal
' ... provides a complete introduction for graduate students.' Physics Today
'...this book remains the most comprehensive single text on the subject of cataclysmic variables ...Although the number and typology of cataclysmic variables we now know has increased since this book was published, the science and descriptions of the binary systems in this volume remain as relevant today as when it was published in 1995. No self-respecting cataclysmic variable junkie should be without a copy.' American Association of Variable Star Observers Bookstore
