From the reviews:

"Chow … has successfully filled the gap in the literature between introductory texts for lay readers interested in cosmology and advanced works. Chow’s book is aimed at undergraduates but is accessible to all readers … . Chapters can stand alone for quick reference, yet the book’s progressive nature makes it a viable course resource for supporting all physics curricula. … this work will be suitable for all science libraries and collections. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers; lower-division undergraduates through graduate students." (J. H. Murphy, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (8), 2008)

"This book has its roots in the lecture notes of Professor Chow, who taught an undergraduate course in relativity and cosmology … . I was interested by the ideas and the historical aspects developed … on the inflationary universe and the physics of the very early universe. … The book may be useful for general information on cosmology and to a physicist already well prepared in general relativity and cosmology to prepare a course on these subjects." (Fernande Grandjean, Belgian Physical Society Magazine, Issue 2, June, 2009)
