' covers a broad range of topics in a concise way, and it is particularly strong in its discussions of pulsar emission phenomenology, pulsars as probes of the interstellar medium and timing irregularities in young pulsars. With its breadth and clear presentation, the new edition will continue to be a valuable introduction for graduate students and others ' Physics Today
