From the reviews:

"This book is aimed towards readers who are interested in space research. The prerequisite for a full and beneficial reading is a knowledge of fundamental physics and mathematics, a knowledge that is usually acquired in undergraduate studies in science or engineering. These reviewers believe that this book will be quite useful for a general physics teacher who wants to find new applications of fundamental physics. ... The figures, illustrations and typesetting of the book are of good quality as usually with Springer ... ." (Fernande Grandjean, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 28 (1), 2006)
