9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By RJ on 6 Dec. 2004
Format: Paperback
This book is a superb review of galactic astronomy. With over a thousand references listed in the appendix of the book, this book gives an excellent overview on the state of the subject up to 1998. It contains almost everything you might want to know about the observational physics of galaxies, from the properties of stars and the interstellar medium, to globular clusters and stellar kinematics. Perhaps my only complaint is that it doesn't deal with physics beyond the scale of galaxies (such as large scale structure in the cosmos). But if you need a textbook on the observational aspects of galaxies themselves, then this is the only book you need. Sure, you probably need an astrophysics degree to fully understand this book, but if you do, then you'll understand why this is a very good book indeed!

Format: Paperback
Yss it is true that having an Astrophysics degree (or at least working towards one) would be helpful when reading this book. For those of us who satisfy this criterion, this is an excellent book, covering a wide range of topics, that all galactic and extra-galactic astronomers should own.
