From the reviews:

"This book is unquestionably the most significant publication on Babylonian mathematical astronomy since Neugebauer’s ACT. Living up to the standard set by Neugebauer is no small challenge, but there is no doubt that Ossendrijver has succeeded in that task, producing both a clearly written and technically outstanding study of these highly important texts." (J.M. Steele, Journal for the History of Astronomy, August, 2013)

“The available corpus of Babylonian texts concerning mathematical astronomy … consists of about 440 tablets, dating roughly between 450 and 50 BC. … very readable photographs of the tablets are provided. … this book will allow scholars with an inclination toward mathematics, and an interest in the history of science in antiquity, to be in contact with its raw products without having to devote their entire lives to such study.” (Bruno Poizat, Mathematical Reviews, April, 2013)
