[T]his book has no peers. -- Nature



[A]n excellent book--big and fat, and containing everything you ever wanted to know about stellar dynamics. . . . This book must become a landmark in the field. -- New Scientist


[T]his book has no peers. -- "Nature

All astronomers and dynamicists should acquire and read this impressive book. It is both readable and rigorous: destined to become a classic landmark in the subject. -- "Times Higher Education Supplement

[A]n excellent book--big and fat, and containing everything you ever wanted to know about stellar dynamics. . . . This book must become a landmark in the field. -- "New Scientist

[The] material is covered with care, rigor, and exemplary clarity; there is nothing obscure, sloppy, or superficial. The authors are, moreover, careful to make clear the limits of present knowledge, and to point out where conclusions cannot yet be drawn. . . . I expect it to stand as a classic reference for many years to come.--Richard B. Larson "American Scientist "

Binney and Tremaine have done a major service to astronomers and physicists alike by producing a magnificent book that will make this fascinating subject much more accessible. This is undoubtedly the best book from which to learn the subject.--Donald Lynden-Bell "Physics Today "

Do make sure that you are familiar with this volume, for you will not be disappointed. James Binney and Scott Tremaine have done the astronomical community a great service in compiling this second edition. It is a masterpiece.--Michael Perryman "Planetary and Space Science "

From the Inside Flap

"Henceforth, one must have a copy of Binney and Tremaine's classic in order to do astrophysics. . . . We will all study from it and come to know it better than the Bible."--John N. Bahcall, Institute for Advanced Study

"I consider Galactic Dynamics to be the most important single book published in the field of astronomy in the last ten years. In its subject, it is the most important book published in a generation."--William Press, Harvard University

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
