Good book, though dated 27 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
With so much having happened in cosmology in the past several years, pretty much any book not written very recently or about intro topics has lost some of its relevence. With that restriction in place here, one still finds this book to be very informative and useful. Many pioneering efforts are encapsulated here, and although alternative theories have surpassed some of the theories presented in this book any cosmologist should have this book on his/her shelf.

Although this book is becoming somewhat dated, it is still a must for those working in the field.
