5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction delving into cutting edge research, 17 Jan 2010

(REAL NAME)   
Cosmic inflation and large scale structure are some of the most research-intensive areas within cosmology and this book introduces the fundamental concepts to get a beginner started easily. It then delves into presenting some advanced concepts along with results from latest research. It a very well-written one and concise. I used it during my MSc year as one of my reference books for Cosmology and now I still use it as an important reference for my PhD in this field. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Cosmology serious, in particular cosmic inflation and large scale structure. I believe 3rd yr, 4th yr (MSc yr) and beginning PhD students who are new to Cosmology and this field will find it invaluable and most helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook for understanding inflationary cosmology., 14 Jan 2002
By

This review is from: Cosmological Inflation and Large-Scale Structure (Paperback)
This is a careful and pedagogical introduction to the subject of cosmology. Every chapter has examples and hints. Explanation does not begin from the first principles. However there are two chapters in the end of the book where important formulae for cosmology are derived step by step from the first principles. These two chapters require a bit more knowledge in math than rest of the book. This textbook also contains an excellent combination of math and physics that it is easy to understand physics and not to be lost in the math. It also teaches how to carry out calculation, where to begin from, namely physical factors that affect further calculations. There is no reason to hesitate. It is necessary to buy it for a good understanding cosmology.
