Review of the hardback: '… this book is a very valuable tool for anybody wishing to learn more about relativistic rotating bodies in equilibrium. … overall it is an excellent reference on this topic.' Classical and Quantum Gravity
Review of the hardback: 'This is an advanced and specialised book, presenting the state of the art in this field, with emphasis on the authors' own expertise and approaches. It contains an extensive discussion of the analytical handling of limiting cases on the one hand and the numerical treatment of the general case on the other, thus providing a complete picture of the subject. … pleasant to read …This book is a standard reference for this subject every researcher in relativity theory should know.' General Relativity and Gravitation
Review of the hardback: 'Nicely produced by Cambridge University Press, this rather specialized book rich in analytical and numerical methods is of value to students and professional researchers in general relativity, mathematical physics and astrophysics.' Mathematical Reviews
