' a valuable reference source for researchers with an interest in neutron stars, and on informative introduction to the field for the graduate student and for the specialist from another discipline wishing to gain experience.' Physics Briefs, 10 (1988) 'In these days of prolific publication, it is a relief to find a complete picture of the state of research in a well-defined subject. As usual, the editors, the IAU, and Reidel have done a good job, and we have another excellent conference report, which I recommend without reserve.' Journal of the British Astronomical Association (1988)
