This book provides a comprehensive introduction to space physics. The information in this book is invaluable to anyone in the field. Dr. Gombosi's explanations are clear, easy to follow, and instructive (there are no pointless sections what so ever). Although the book is mainly mathematical, the derivations are presented in such a way that this is no handicap to the readers and a strong sense of the physics of space situations is conveyed. I have used this book as a reference in research, in classes, and for presentations/papers. I strongly recommend it.
