Good books on space physics are hard to find. Instructors teaching courses in this field often must pull material from many books, papers, and other resources to compile a useful set of lecture notes. There is also the task of developing homework sets and test questions. Developing appropriate problems for a graduate-level course is one of the most difficult tasks facing an instructor. Therefore, when a good, inclusive book comes along, it is a noteworthy occasion and should be celebrated by the community.
