From the reviews:

“This complete, timely presentation explains why people can see only 4 percent of the universe. … Well-selected color plates add to reader interest. A brief appendix, glossary of definitions, and index support the text. … the book will appeal most to scientifically inclined senior undergraduates through professional readers … . Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (W. E. Howard III, Choice, Vol. 49 (10), June, 2012)

“The aim of this book is … to explain the concepts behind this revolution and allow the layman to understand the phenomena and measurements that enabled this new view to arise. With a layout as clear as the prose and a lavish use of illustrations, colour photographs, and line diagrams, the book is mostly successful in its aim. … an excellent introductory astronomy text at A-level or first-year-undergraduate-level physics or indeed as a useful inspirational book for continuing-education courses.” (Barry Kent, The Observatory, Vol. 132 (1229), August, 2012)

“The presentation of this popular text is very readable, it contains a lot of pictures, mainly of astronomical objects outside our galaxy, and explains several of the observational techniques and instruments. The main topic is modern cosmology, the relation between dark matter, dark energy, and anti-matter in the cosmos are discussed in details. The book contains almost no formula, even the blackbody radiation formula is replaced by a figure to explain the frequency distribution of the cosmic background radiation.” (Hans-Jürgen Schmidt, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1235, 2012)
