This book presents in a simple style the success story of modern astrophysics — how the application of known physics to models of stars can, together with the observational data, help us understand what stars are made of, how they live and how they die. The account is non-technical but scientifically accurate. It is interspersed with anecdotes and analogies to make the subject matter readable and understandable even to a lay reader with some basic scientific background.

About the Author:

Jayant Vishnu Narlikar is currently the Founder Director of the Inter-Varsity Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics at Pune.

Review:

"Professor Narlikar has produced a text which is an elegant model of lucidity. The discussion strips away all unnecessary detail and goes to the heart of the physical principles, in a style that would be accessible for any intelligent school student with a basic background in science. I can certainly recommend this book for the intended readership of young enquiring minds, or even for the layperson who is curious about astronomy, especially as it is written by one of the world's most eminent astronomers with a talent for knowing what to leave out, and yet still retain a coherent and logical discussion of the key principles of stellar physics." -- John Hearnshaw, Professor of Astronomy, University of Canterbury, New Zealand
