Customer Review

on October 3, 2011
Not all transiting exoplanets as the title suggests, the textbook first charts all methods of exoplanet discovery in reasonable detail, before focusing on transits. The book covers the whole field of exoplanet discovery very well and would make good refernece material. Unfortunately I don't think the author understands the needs of target audience completely (3rd year undergrads). Many arguments are a little hard to follow and require further elaboration or examples. Although a relatively new subject, I think the author is trying to squeeze too much information into a small space and is often too consice. However if the reader requires further detail on the subject, referneces are plentiful throughout.
It certainly wasn't a page turner like some OU material, but I warmed to it in later chapters. Be warned some of the material in this book could be out of date soon as the subject is moving on at an alarming rate (written ~2009?). The general theories and mathmatics should be sound for many years to come.
