From the reviews of the first edition: "! carefully crafted and well-written." (Stefan Westerhoff, Columbia University, Physics Today, September 2004) "This publication ! is aimed at serious students of the subject. ! Arranged in two parts, Stanev first describes the standard model of cosmic rays and the interactions that are important ! . The second part describes the challenges of current cosmic ray research ! . It is a 'must read' for those with a passion to find out more about the high energy universe." (Roger Feasey, Journal of the Auckland Astronomical Society AAS, August, 2005) "Todor Stanev ! has distilled the essence of cosmic ray physics. It is a magnificent achievement and will be invaluable for workers in the field. It should also be available for consultation by researchers in related disciplines ! there will also be a need to make use of excellent list of referenced material."
