"The editors assert that Fundamental Astronomy is intended as 'a university textbook for a first course in astronomy,' but it will more likely be used as a reference volume in departmental and observatory libraries. The contributing authors (astronomers and geodesists) employ mathematics, especially calculus, extensively throughout the work. ... The text covers all planetary science, astrophysics, and cosmology. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals." (S. P. Maran, Choice, Vol. 57 (11), July, 2017) "The overall choice of topics and the depth and breadth that this book ... are essential for a great understanding of astronomy. I feel like it is as good a book as far as the basics of theory and observational astrophysics are concerned. Everything is explained clearly and where possible there are helpful diagrams, figures and photos that are there exactly when you need them. ... Something that I also enjoyed a lot, was the extensive set of tables." (AstroMadness.com, May, 2017)
