Book Description:

This volume is a fitting tribute to S Chandrasekhar (Chandra), one of the greatest astrophysicists of all time. It contains wonderful chapters, suitable for the casual reader, that describe Chandra the scientist, Chandra the warm human being, and Chandra's impact on science and on people. And it contains lucid chapters, designed for working scientists and advanced students, that describe the modern state of bodies of science that Chandra pioneered. I recommend this volume to the casual reader and the serious scientist alike. -- Kip S Thorne "California Institute of Technology"
