"Professor Narlikar has produced a text which is an elegant model of lucidity. The discussion strips away all unnecessary detail and goes to the heart of the physical principles, in a style that would be accessible for any intelligent school student with a basic background in science. I can certainly recommend this book for the intended readership of young enquiring minds, or even for the layperson who is curious about astronomy, especially as it is written by one of the world's most eminent astronomers with a talent for knowing what to leave out, and yet still retain a coherent and logical discussion of the key principles of stellar physics." -- John Hearnshaw, Professor of Astronomy, University of Canterbury, New Zealand
