    Reviews

    @qu:If any book can be heralded as the quintessential benchmark for a subject in astronomy, this must be a good candidate. @source:The Observatory @qu:...very well presented...the appearance of the book is timely. @source:Journal of The British Astronomical Association Vol 101 No 6 @qu:... this comprehensive review of all aspects of EUV astronomy will be an invalable reference source for some time to come. @source:Plant Science Vol 40
