User reviews
This is a good book for getting into the nitty-gritty of astrophysics. It has all the information and formulas that you'll need to understand the basic and intermediate levels of astrophysics. It reminds though of my SR-71 pilot's manual that I bought 15 years ago. It's a republication of copied pictures. The photos, for the vast majority, are black and white. This is fine for someone who wants the book the supplement their astronomy class(as I did), but doesn't make it for a coffee-table book to look at the pictures of the amazing universe. Get it for the information, not the visual stimulus. The information is superb, but the soft cover and the grainy, copied pictures leave it with 3 stars.
Subject content and information are fantastic for broad subject matter and serves well as an overview. However, the illustrations, print quality, and book construction are poor. Springer is known for their quality book binding and printing, but this book's physical characteristics are substandard by a large margin - maybe even bizarre. The illustrations and tables are 1990's copy machine quality at best and the glued binding on my book is separating. Would absolutely be five stars if printing issues were absent.
It's an amazing book
Excellent survey of astronomy and astrophysics. Suitable for a junior level course (which is where I first saw it). Updated several times since then. Requires some math and physics.
This is a terrific book for anyone who wants to understand a little more about the physics of the universe. Highly recommended.
As a physics undergrad, an earlier edition of this book was one of our texts in 1982. The latest edition continues the tradition of providing a lucid description of the basic physical principles underlying astronomic phenomena.

Hence, you are shown how the temperature in a star can rise, because as its atoms fall towards each other under mutual gravity, the conservation of energy leads to an increase in kinetic energy and hence temperature. Enough to eventually trigger ignition of nuclear reactions. Well, provided the initial mass is large enough. Otherwise one gets brown dwarfs or gas giants like Jupiter.

Other subjects like spectroscopy are also derived from basic principles. It's nice to see how we can get the surface temperature of a star by looking at its spectrum and seeing which lines exist. And the strength of the magnetic field on its surface by the amount of splitting in certain lines. And even the rate of rotation by the minute Doppler shifts.

The evolution of the elements, from nuclear fusion, is well done. The text refers to the classic papers, including B2FH (Burbidge, Burbidge, Fowler and Hoyle). Other key contributors like Chandrasekhar get their fair mention.
It's not the flashiest text, I agree. But I think it can be used for a first course on astronomy and astrophysics (for students with some basic calculus and physics).

It covers everything: Celestial mechanics, the Sun and its planetary system, electromagnetic radiation, telescopes and detectors, astrophysics of individual stars, star clusters, interstellar matter, the Milky Way, galaxies, clusters of galaxies, cosmology, and cosmogony. But the style is concise, and there isn't enough space to cover it all in detail. It requires careful reading, and if used for a class, some topics probably need to be skipped or amplified by an instructor.

What would I add to it? Not much. Maybe a little more on planetary dynamics and magnetospheres, since I happen to find them interesting. Perhaps more material on relativity.
This book may not be the most flashy in illustrations and will require that you actually read whole sections instead of just browsing the highlights in sidebars. But it does contain a lot of solid information going into more detail on several topics than other introductory textbooks. It is targeted rather at the graduating physics student than at an interested lay person.
