The text conveys the excitement of the progress being made in both observational and computational astronomy and ably describes the physical processes involved prior to educating the reader on a comprehensive list of frontier hiigh topics ranging from dead stars in our Galaxy, black holes in galactic nuclei to the longaor history of galaxies seen at early cosmic times. Most recently, I astropbysics become involved in studies of the origins of cosmic magnetism and the capabilities of the SKA in advancing these studies.
