… very useful as a handy quick reference. … With its broad but surprisingly detailed and concise coverage of the field at quite a high level, this book forms an excellent primer for any graduate student starting a programme of exoplanetary work. … the text is generally accessible and well written, as would be expected from a research and editing team of this calibre.
