5.0 out of 5 stars The Exoplanet Handbook, 12 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Exoplanet Handbook (Hardcover)
I am a professor of astronomy and have been in the exoplanet business since 1988. For the past several years I have taught a course on "Exoplanets" as part of a modular degree course. When my students would ask for an appropriate textbook that covered all of the course material my reply had always been "there are none". That is until Michael Perryman's "The Exoplanet Handbook". Every chapter corresponds to a topic in my course and they frequently include the same figures from the literature that I used in my lectures. Perryman's book compiles all the pertinent and current knowledge in exoplanets in one place. It would have been much easier for me to prepare lectures with this book! This is a comprehensive and well-written textbook that beautifully covers all aspects of the dynamic field of exoplanets. I agree completely with the excellent review given by Andrew Cameron.

I highly recommend this book for all advanced undergraduates and to graduate students just venturing into the exoplanet business. It is also a very valuable resource
for any academic person that is preparing a university course on this topic.
