Format: Paperback
Quite useful tool for students intending to go on in the area of space plasmas, but it is also good reference book for those working in the area, when they need to recall some basic information. However, some parts could be treated in more detail, and some parts are not explained in the best way. And main problem is that some parts should be in different order, then in third or fourth chapter would need to be coments like: "We will show it later in the fifth chapter". This might be not a problem for a researcher in the area who uses the book as a reference tool, however, students who are new in the area, be aware. Overall, it is quite interesting reading.

This is the best book you'll get for the basics, combine it with 'Introduction to Space Physics' by Kivelson and Russell and you'll be set for all your solar/planetary/magnetospheric stuff.

This isn't a proper review, I just wanted to say that on P.56 Fig 4.4 the Hall and Pedersen labels (sigma H and sigma P) should be switched around, that way they conform to the earlier equations and also the later statements in the book. This mistake caused me some pain during my PhD viva because I understanding was incorrect due to the figure, so this mistake went a long way for me..!
